Gambling. When done in moderation, within your means, and intended for entertainment - can be pretty fun... Heck, a whole lotta fun! The icing on the cake is even sweeter when the casinos dangle carrots like amazing suites and enough food to feed 5 generations of your family, just so you will come back to play the high stakes with them.
Macau - the gaming mecca in Asia surpasses Las Vegas in gambling revenue. It is no longer just a seedy place over run by triads and Stanley Ho's henchmen; well it probably still is, but it has seen the welcome development of other big resorts and players to the industry in recent years.
A bunch of high-end luxury gambling resorts have sprung up in the past decades. Take a look at some of their pictures and decide which kind of palace you would prefer!
