The Venetian Macau is humongous, and it seems to be divided into equal parts hotel, casino, and-- you guessed it-- a shopping mall.
The fake sky was nice... if you don't mind seeing the rivets. At first, I thought they were fake birds painted on the ceiling. But the marks were all perfectly round and placed at regular intervals.
So I just stopped looking up.
We went on a fabulously expensive gondola ride. Our gondolier was cute and very friendly. Sang very well, too.
All in all, we enjoyed the Venetian, but I don't mind not staying there. Now, if it were offered for free, though...
