So, you arrived in Macau in the evening. It's literally your first day in Macau. Now what can you do?

If you took the same flight as I did [Cebu Pacific arrival into Macau from Manila -- arrival around 9:30PM, and after clearing immigrations, getting your bags, and taking a bus or a taxi to your hotel and checking in, and its now 10:30PM] then here's some tips on what you can do if you still have the energy to go out and make the most out of your trip.

Well, after a harrowing experience riding the AP1 bus -- where some Chinese people don't queue and just run ahead of you and taking a shuttle bus, walking to the hotel and checking in, checking out the rooms, my friend and I got restless. And so we took a short walk from Metropole Hotel to watch the fountain shows at Wynn and also the Tree of Prosperity & Dragon show. The fountain shows are until 12mn, with 15 minute intervals in the middle. I managed to watch "Colours of the Wind", which is the second to the last show, while the last fountain show is the best - slated for 12mn! The title is "Hero" and is complete with fire effects. Loved it!! The Tree of Prosperity & Dragon Show are alternating, and happens every 30 minutes near the casino.

Once inside the Wynn area, before the tree of prosperity and dragon show do look up and check out the awesome animals that make up the Chinese New Year. There's the rat, the monkey, the horse, among others. It's absolutely breathtaking! Take lots of photos too! I loved the bottom part of the area which shows the earth, I think. Those two golden designs are trapdoors which open up during the shows!

If you can afford it, you could also try and look through some of the shops that line up inside the Wynn concourse. I myself took a peek at the Ferrari store in hopes of buying a stuffed toy, which turned out to be absolutely expensive! Never mind! I can't afford any of the stuff they have to offer =p

Can I just add that I love the carpeting of Wynn? It's so soft! I swear, when my feet were hurting because of all the walking, I just wanted to walk barefoot in the carpet, which of course, I didn't do. Do check out the chandelier at the Wynn! It's red! Cute! And take a peek at the gorgeous Wynn pool. If I were rich, I would've checked in this hotel in an instant!

And.. of course, after you've explored Wynn, you have to go have your photos taken in the streets at the other casinos! The Grand Lisboa is known for its pineapple-shaped building structure! You could see it from far away!

See? Even if you don't have enough money for gambling or can't take the risk, you can still enjoy the casinos of Macau! More on my trip on my next Macau blog =)
