Macau/Cotai

Cotai, also known as the Cotai Strip, (路氹 - Lou Tam in Cantonese, Lu Tan in Mandarin) is in the rather unimaginative name given to the reclaimed land between what used to be Taipa and Coloane islands in China's Special Administrative Region of Macau, coined out of the contraction of Coloane and Taipa.

The area is being developed into the Las Vegas Strip of the East and will also house several hotels, sports facilities, golf courses and other facilities.

Get in

See

The spectacular casino buildings, especially at dark when their signs and screens are more visible.

Do

The main attraction is gambling, but all the casinos also have restaurants and bars, and many also include hotel/resort facilities. Anyone with money can have a fine time in the casinos without gambling.

Budget travellers should go to Coloane instead for most of their Macau time, but even they might enjoy a look at some of the casino architecture or shows and there is reasonably priced food in some of the food courts; see #Eat.
