The first few things I noticed is how locals seem to have no sense as to what is happening around them. People play their video games with the sound blaring with no concern to the other people around them. More often then once has my elevator car stopped at a floor and no one has moved for anyone to get in or get out. Two gentleman stared at the open door with confusion never it seemed taking in to consideration that someone; meaning me, had pushed that floor and needed to get out. They literally had to be physically moved so we could exit the elevator. The food here has also been quite a culture shock although there are many American options in the upscale areas of town and around my hotel.
Macau reminded me of Reno Nevada. Mostly American casinos take up much of the Downtown area of Macau and countless watch and Jewelry stores take up the in between. Trying to get dinner was interesting as well. Inside the Casino every restaurant I went to said they were full and had many empty tables. This is one of the main differences I found between Macau and Vegas. In Vegas You can actually eat at 10PM, at both the Wynn and the MGM I was told that the kitchen could not handle any more tables. So if you are planning on spending the evening here make a reservation.
