There are so many hotels to choose from in Macau and we choose Emperor Palace Macau located a block west of the Grand Lisboa, (10 mins walk). Upon arriving at the hotel, there are two tall Buckingham Palace type guards stand by the main door wearing bearskin hats and holding machine guns. The daily changing of guards happen at around 12 pm.
The hotel-casinos are owned by Emperor Entertainment Hotel Group. Just to name few artists from Emperor entertainment are Nicholas Tse, Twins, Boy’z.
Not far from the guards, there is a pair of gold carriage that is permanently parked outside the hotel.
