Construction Pictures

Hey Guys!

I finally had an opportunity to see it in person. WOW! I'm very impressed with this project. Its ******* HUGE in person! I spent four nights at Bellagio which is right next to City Center. That gave me better preparatives of this construction process and I took dozens pictures of it.

Here the pictures! ENJOY!

I've been keeping a photographic record of the progress. Its going up REALLY fast. Plus its a green project, so they save a ton of money on construction costs via tax breaks.

No, this is a reaction to Las Vegas growing. Macau has less than 9,000 hotel rooms but is now starting to grow bigger. Las Vegas, on the other hand, has over 145,000 hotel rooms and still needs a lot more. Two completely different types of tourist markets. Macau makes money from lots of people who mostly gamble for just one day and then go home. Las Vegas makes money from people who stay for several days and they spend money on a lot more than just gambling.
