Macau: A Place to Gamble and Bungee Jump While Teaching in Korea

Posted on Sat, Mar 07, 2015 @ 12:00 PM

Last week I talked about my trip to Hong Kong, which was a long overdue break from my teaching labors. Yes, I love teaching English in Korea but even people who enjoy their job still need a break to recharge the batteries from time to time. Anyway, while in Hong Kong, my friends and I also made a day trip over to Macau, a special administrative region of China.

For those of you unfamiliar with Macau, it is the largest gambling mecca in the world. I have heard some people say it is five times larger than Las Vegas, but I don’t know exactly how they quantify that, since in my opinion it seemed like Las Vegas has a lot more casinos. Either way, being the degenerates that we are, of course we were going to check out the the casinos in Macau. Along with visiting the casinos, I quickly found out there is a lot more to do in Macau than I previously thought.

Casinos in Korea!

 So I am not a huge gambler and I really try my best to avoid casinos. In fact, I have only been to three casinos in my entire life. As an English teacher living in Jeju though, it is hard to ignore some of the massive casinos on the island. Many of them are in close proximity to some of the island's best beaches and they are connected to some of the island's premier resorts. There are eight casinos scattered throughout the small island so when visiting, you are bound to see one. I finally took the plunge and visited one of the fancier ones on the island, Lotte Hotel and Casino, and I am sad to say that casinos seem to be pretty much the same all over the world. Same games, same atmosphere, same buffets, etc....but I was surprised to learn during my visit some interesting facts about gambling in Korea.
