Hong Kong High Rollers

The Island of Macau has gone from a sleepy Portuguese colonial enclave to one of the world´s top gaming and resort casino destinations. Huge investment in the Cotai strip by American gaming empires Wynn, MGM, and the Venetian are almost certain to define this area very near Hong Kong´s bustling metropolis as the new Las Vegas of the Orient.

High speed hydrofoils take people from Hong Kong to Macau - I think every 30 minutes though reservations may be required for the trip.
