The Sands Macao was the largest casino on earth until its sibling, the Venetian, stole the spotlight. It's the first casino you'll see on the peninsula even before debarking from the ferry. Past the sparkling 50-ton chandelier over the entrance, the grand gaming floor is anchored with a live cabaret stage above an open bar and under a giant screen. Several tiers are tastefully linked with escalators leading to the high-stakes tables upstairs. The friendly atmosphere and
handy location, just across from Fisherman's Wharf and near the bar street in NAPE, makes this place a good choice for a warm-up to your night out.
