The Cotai Strip has all of Macau's biggest casinos, hotels and clubs - and is an attempt to imitate the original in Nevada.
It's been surprisingly successful, and is host to several blockbuster names and the biggest casino in the world.
More gambling is done here than anywhere else on the planet.
The strip gained its name from the Island of Cotai where it sits and stretches from the newly unveiled Studio City in the south to the City of Dreams and Hard Rock Hotel in the north.
Like in Las Vegas, the strip isn't especially made for strolling.
Instead, you can hop between your favourite casinos, take in a show or two, or jump in the best poolside parties in town.
There is little of the volcanoes and spurting fountains of Vegas outside, although venture into the casinos and you'll find laser, light and fire powered dragon shows and levitating diamonds.
Unlike in downtown Macau, all of the casinos and hotels here are mega resorts.
The flagship casino resort on the Cotai Strip is the Venetian.This gargantuan casino is the biggest in the world and includes not only an endless parade of blackjack tables, roulette wheels and slots but a 3000 room hotel and Macau’s biggest shopping mall.There are also a number of shows, and the Venetian is host to many of Macau’s biggest events – from tennis opens to rock star concerts.Naturally you can also have gondola ride around its canals as well.Across the road is the slightly smaller but slightly hipper City of Dreams casino.On top of the usual menu of gambling options this mega resort offers three hotels, including the Hard Rock, pool parties and Macau’s best floor show – the Evil Knievel inspired House of Dancing Water.
