PhotoHunt#53 Artificial

One cannot help but be amazed once inside Venetian Resort Hotel Casino in Macau. The place is imposing but nonetheless very, very impressive. It felt like being transported straight to Europe more specificially to Venice, Italy, the City of Canals.

With the artificial glorious blue skies complete with singing gondoliers on gondolas as they cruise on the artificial canal, it is just so easy to feel that indeed, the place is Venice, Italy.

By the way, this is also where the Boys Over Flowers cast did one of their location shootings. Wish we were there when they did it, I could've done some fan craziness upon seeing Kim Hyun Joong, Lee Min Ho and the rest of the cast :)

More Venetian Hotel pictures here.

Oooooo! I *almost* posted an entry on the Venetian Macao! I'm glad I didn't now -- but, yeah, I must say it is a place that screams "artificial"!!! :D

Macau is a great place, with wonderful Portuguese food and Venice sure looks an amazing city to visit too.

That is so beautiful and it doesn't look artificial at all.

Wow that's cool. And inside as well. I've been to the Silver Legacy in Reno NV that has something similar to that. It's wonderful to watch and amazing what it can do. :)

Now that is artificial. Great job on the theme.

Artificial on a grand scale! It is amazing what the entertainment industry can create. From casinos to Disney World, we can have history or wildlife nearby (for a fee!). Great photos for the theme!
