The fight is on between Macau and Las Vegas to provide the best Chinese gambling holidays. It seems like Macau might win but Las Vegas is fighting back.
Chinese Gambling Holidays – Increased flight options
Gambling in banned in China so 1.4 billion people are prevented from casino gambling. They can do that abroad and the two best options for a Chinese gambling holiday are Las Vegas and Macau, a former Portuguese colony on the coast of China.
Up until now there have been no direct flights from China to Las Vegas but that has now changed. From 2nd December Chinese carrier Hainan Airlines is flying direct to Las Vegas 3 days a week from Beijing. McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas has been kitted out with new signage in Chinese and Mandarin to mark the occasion. Hainan Airlines already have non-stop flights to 5 other American cities.
