Viva Macau!

They say Macau is set to be the next Vegas.  Well, while it may not have the club Tryst, the girls at the Hard Rock pool and the (I never want to look at food again) all-you-can-eat buffets…it is heating up to become a roaring hot-spot of its own.  From Grand Prix races to more A-list celebs than you’ll find in a botox-clinic on Oscars day, it’s time to switch to the fast lane, we’re going to Macau!

Who needs golf buggies when you have the Grand Prix?
From 16-18 November, the 54th Macau Grand Prix will take the world stage. During the days of this heart-stopping race, the city will be flooded with revved-up engines competing for the grand prize. Experience the high- speed thrills, action and glamour as the drivers take the track by storm.

Who needs to queue at an omelette station when you can have a gourmet chef’s tasting?
Eat your heart out at Wine & Gourmet Asia 2007, 6-10 November, a 3-day culinary and hospitality trade fair along with a 5-day program of world-class gastronomic events. Lick your lips for a series of gourmet dinners presented by world-renowned chefs, food and wine masterclasses and a behind the scenes foodie tour of The Venetian Macau.

Who needs Celine Dion when you have Beyonce?
Uh oh uh oh uh oh uh oh…our favourite Naughty Girl is coming to town. This Saturday, November 3, Beyonce will be filling the Venetian with her soulful tunes and bootylicious moves.  She’ll be sure to bring the house down and leave you feeling Crazy in Love.  

Who needs The Liberace Museum when you have the Louvre?
Travel From Versailles to the Forbidden City at the Macau Museum before 2 December, where you can view “copperplate engravings” from the Louvre collection, an art form that began in the 15th century and once enhanced the relationship between China and France.  And you thought gold was the only precious metal Macau had to offer!

Who needs Venus and Serena when you have Sampras and Federer?
On Friday November 23, The Venetian Macao Tennis Showdown will take place, hosting a historic match between two of tennis’ all time greatest players. Prepare yourself for an action packed frenzy as the former World No.1 tennis legend Pete Sampras goes head-to-head with the current World No. 1 tennis champ Roger Federer. These two tennis mega-stars have often been compared and will now come head-to-head in a best-of-three set match, sure to be the hottest tennis event of the year.  Girls, cold towels are advised. 

Who needs Brad and Angelina when you have Romeo and Juliet?
For fans of true unrequited love (and ballet!) you’ll be excited to hear that the Stuttgart Ballet will be performing Romeo and Juliet on Tuesday, November 27 at the Macau Cultural Centre Grand Auditorium. In a new approach to choreography, John Cranko demonstrates the charm of a dramatic ballet. His Romeo and Juliet is portrayed as both realistic and poetic and each character has a uniquely enticing personality….so much more refreshingly artistic than their Hollywood counterparts!

Whether you’ve shaken your booty all night with Beyonce or indulged in a multitude of sins at the Wine & Gourmet festival, not to worry…what happens in Macau stays in Macau!
