Its the truth. When kids want to have fun with there friends they don't go to museums. I personally love museums...
thanks for telling me this, I was thinking most of these people are normally older people. I like outdoor things, like biking, hiking, camping (though I haven't camped), swimming etc. I like a museums, art museums, etc. I am open minded only I just didn't see why or who didn't like the stuff I mentioned such as shopping, beaches, resorts, amusement parks, etc. You explained it, thank you.

Macau offers the culture of roulette wheels and baccarat. It lacks even the entertainment and food of Las Vegas. It is a well tuned machine designed to strip money from the Chinese.

Las Vegas was there to pre-history. It was a watering hole in the middle of no where. Frequently by millennials of varied people. It has its interesting history. Kind of like the Portuguese era in Macau. Or are you of the "sweet Europeans developing the native" culture?

He was talking how big Macau is in area compared to Las Vegas. Macau is a very small place with A LOT of people living in it. Las Vegas has both a much larger population and in Area, especially the metropolitan area, Las Vegas would be like a giant monster eats up Macau.

I imagine that Shanghai and Beijing must be Ridiculously large in area...Well even the Pearl River Delta Region of Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Foshan-Hong Kong-Macau must be really large. It's population is over 100 million people, about the population of Mexico.

You obviously have some bias because that's ridiculous. No use talking to you any more.

What does that have to do with anything? Vegas outside the strip is a bleak dump. Yes, they are. The PRD has about 60 million not 100.

Ahh one of the cognoscenti.

Vegas is a nice modern city of 2 million souls. Vastly nicer than Macau.

Did you not say you had been in both? Eyes not working?

Must be tough to be unable to see.

Yes, and I saw more than promos of the strip and rich peoples mansion. I took the wrong bus to the ghetto and was fleeced out of money. Tell me why you think vegas is vastly nicer than Macau?

really? That sucks. Vegas probably isn't so special outside of the strip, but it's not all poor and ghetto. There are neighborhoods and suburbs that have nice houses, although they all look the same... Also there are good and bad parts like other cities.

Macau is tiny, Vegas is huge.

If you actually got on a Las Vegas bus. Got to a bad neighborhood and got fleeced you demonstrate just how dumb some people get when visiting.

There are no real ghettos in Las Vegas. The bad areas, which do exist, appear quite nice and the primary perpetrators are white people with drug problems.

Well over half the city is less than 20 years old. It is indistinguishable from any nice southern CA suburb.

Macau is a chinese/european hybrid urban disaster saved by gaming.
