1. MGM Macau, February 2018. Having spent three days diving into Macau’s rich history and gorgeous UNESCO sights, it was finally time for Wonderboy and I to start hitting the hotel-casinos for a dose of the territory’s world famous glitzy luxuriousness. Our first stop was this beast of a building on Avenida Dr. Sun Yat Sen. Opened in 2007 at a cost of US$1.25 billion, the building boasts fine views over Zhujiang River Estuary and nearby Taipa island.
