Top Casinos to Visit when Travelling to Asia

Asia is renowned for having some of the best casinos in the world, so if you are travelling there, it is worth talking some time off your trip to pay one or two of them a visit. Asia is not only well-known for its love of casino games but its high rolling players too. 

Here are a few of the top casinos that are certainly worth a visit. 

Asia’s casino centre is Macau. There are around 30 casinos there of all kinds. It is the equivalent of Las Vegas and its casinos include the largest casino in the world, the Venetian Macau. It's style's very much like the Venetian in Las Vegas, but on a grander scale. There are around 800 gaming tables and several thousand slot machines and video games. Styled on Marco Polo’s Asian Adventures, you can take a gondolier on the canals and visit the different gamin areas which have Chinese names such as the Golden Fish and the Red Dragon. 

The MGM casino hotel complex and the City of Dreams are other casinos that are definitely worth visiting, but just as in Las Vegas you can spend days just wandering from casino to casino. 

While gambling is illegal in China and Hong Kong, there is a large selection of casinos in South Korea though on a much smaller scale, and although there are only two casinos in the whole of Singapore, these are both excellent. The best is the Marina Bay Sands which has a very extensive gaming area with 2,500 slot machines and video games along with 600 gaming tables, but its jewel in the crown is its truly amazing Sky Park built 56 stories high and including a huge infinity swimming pool which is the largest cantilevered pool ever built. An experience a million miles away from using sites such as Sadly, it is only available to hotel guests so be sure to book yourself a room there. It is not cheap even by Singapore standards, but it will be an unforgettable experience.
