City of Dreams

Opened on June 2009, the City of Dreams is the latest thing in Macau's casino scene and one of the hippest of Macau attractions. It is located just across the street from the Venetian Macau and is surely going to give some tough competition to its older neighbor...

 

Visiting Hong Kong ?
Guided day tours are a very nice way to explore this unique and beautiful metropolis...  

Often abbreviated as COD, the complex comprises three hotels, a luxury apartment tower and a three-floor podium where the mega-casino can be found, alongside a ritzy shopping mall and a range of up class dining and entertainment venues.

 

The complex is themed around "Water and ocean life" and its developers did not spare a penny to enhance the ambience... Indoors, there is the "Vquarium" (short for virtual aquarium): A massive tailor-made rear projection panel showing videos of aquatic life and mermaids, while outdoors, the whole place is surrounded by large reflection pools and manmade lakes with cascades ... 

.

Although the property is not yet fully developed, the casino is already among the biggest and glitziest in Macau, boasting a gaming space of 420,000 sq ft, with more than 500 tables and 1,500 slot machines... Surprisingly enough, it is better geared for the mid-range gambler than for the high rollers, whom everybody seems to be after nowadays...

 

Other than gambling, this popular Macau attraction also boasts  a variety of world class entertainment options, like the dome-shaped "Bubble" theatre where you can enjoy a 10 minutes 360° multi-media experience, called the "Dragon's Treasure Show" (a show starts every thirty minutes and admission is free), or whatch "The House of Dancing Water" : An uber-spectacular water-themed show, by internationally known Franco Dragone Entertainment Group...

 

As already mentioned, the City of Dreams is not short of dining and shopping venues (such as Horizons and Beijing Kitchen), most of which can be found at the chic "Boulevard", and there is also a "Kids' City", in case you brought your little ones along...

 

As the complex is still spanking new, there are quite a few promotions that are currently running, so it's certainly worth to check out their website and see what is on... You might have a pleasant surprise...

"The House of Dancing Water", one of the world's most spectacular extravaganzas, is permanently staged at the City of Dreams in Macau, opposite the Venetian.

 

Created and directed by Franco Dragone, this über-spectacular water-themed show plays twice daily, almost every day, at 5pm and 8pm, and is a real must-see. What's more, you can combine it with a visit to the world's largest casino and have dinner at one of the fantastic restaurants in either the City of Dreams itself, or across the street, at the Venetian's "Grand Canal Shoppes".
