Perhaps I spoke too soon about Hong Kong. If Hong Kong might be heaven, then Macau is the heaven of heaven. The ferry there, which costs $185 HKD each way (or roughly $50 USD round trip,) feels as if you are embarking on a journey to an ancient fishing village on an uninhabited island.
Upon arrival, the reality is exactly the opposite. It's the Vegas of the East. Flashing lights, all of the big name Vegas casinos are there, and the interesting mix of the old and the new is really something to see. Macau is a crazy culture hodge podge, and that's what makes it truly special.
