Photographer's Note

This is one of the biggest attraction in macau.

Not because its an old monument or because its part of the portuguese history ocupation in macau, but because it was one of the 1st and the biggest and the most known casino in macau untill 2004.

Casino Lisboa is situated at the entrance of macau who comes via the old bridge from the islands. Macau consists of 3 Islands, Macau, Taipa and Coloane.

Casino Lisboa is now out of date compared to all the new Las Vegas style casinos opening since the liberalisation of the gambling market in macau that was dominated by the company name you can see on the top STDM, that is owned by the family HO. The man main of that family and the owner of all the STDM casinos is Stanley Ho, a very influencia man in macau and rated in the top 10 most richest man in Hong Kong, you would wonder why since all Hotels in macau had A CASINO and that CASINO was owned by him and his sociaty.

Macau is considered the second Las Vegas of the world.
If you are a gambler its a must GO!
