Macua casinos at nightMacau with kids review by Leah - We decided to visit Macau on our trip to Hong Kong.  We flew into the small Macua airport and jumped aboard a shuttle bus to our hotel.  We drove past small villages, fishing ports and ancient architecture... then turned a corner into the Vegas of Asia. Macau is just the most wonderful mix of old and new.  A country where you have multi million dollar casinos complete with singing water fountains and brilliant light shows and traditional fishing villages living side by side in harmony.  Throw in stunning ruins like St Pauls Cathedral, cobbled streets, years of history and culture and you've got yourself one interesting place....
