The Grand Canal Shoppes in Macau is an exact replica of its sister property in the gambling city of Las Vegas. It is a shopping mall inspired by the Italian port city of Venice and has exquisite baroque themed architecture which gives it an authentic Venetian feel. However, at 968,000 square feet of shopping space the mall is twice as large as its sister property in Vegas.

The Grand Canal Shoppes in Macau is the epitome of luxury shopping malls with its elaborately themed decorations, architecture and appropriate street entertainment, the mall feel as if a part of Venice were transported to Asia and leased out to designer stores. The mall has three large indoor canals through which visitors can take a relaxing ride on a Gondola- an open air boat that is unique to Venice and to add a bit of Asian flavour, visitors can opt to also have a Dragon boat ride.

The shopping mall features more than 350 outlets by luxury and designer brands, an 86,000 square foot Spa, twenty high end restaurants, a thousand seat food court and a hip and happening night club. Even live theatrical performances are available on evenings with crowds usually in excess of 1800 in attendance. Some of Venice’s landmarks have been replicated at Grand Canal Shoppes, places like St. Mark’s square hosts carnival like events and also features a bevy of street performers.

There is absolutely no shortage of hotels in Macau, as it has become the most popular vacation spot in Asia. A number of international hotels and resorts have ventured here to capitalize on the booming tourist arrivals to the area. Luxury Macau hotels are some of the best in the world with many internationally renowned brands involved in the sector.
