The Casino Lisboa does not attract high rollers, just the slippers and sliders, their feet greased with an adrenaline rush, skidding further into debt or delight. A no-smoking policy rules the lower floors but in the upstairs halls, the air is toxic. Baccarat, blackjack and roulette are the main games, but you can also hit the slot machines. Or for a different change of pace, try your hand at fan-tan and dai siu (recommended, you find out the rules first). You must be over the age of 18 to roll the dice.

Open 24 hours, Noite e Dia wins for style, selection, and convenience.
Not much is known about the fort—St. Francisco Barracks—that was built on this site in 1629, other than that it had a convent attached to it. These original fortifications, built to defend Macau against the Dutch, were replaced by new barracks in 1864 to help protect Macau against the Chinese. Luckily, no attack was ever mounted from across the border. Today, the barracks are home to the local police, as well some old cannons from days long gone.
After taking in the sights of S. Francisco Barracks, there is an opportunity to sit and relax in these nearby gardens. Laid out on two levels, this green patch in the heart of Macau is a favorite haunt of school kids on their breaks and at lunchtime. On the upper level of the gardens there is a tower that was built to commemorate those that gave their lives in World War I. These days the same building houses the Association for the Handicapped. Also close by is the Clube Militar, a great place for some great Portuguese cuisine.

Akin to the Fountains of Bellagio, Wynn Performance Lake is a dramatic water symphony with lights and fire. The fascinating performance is staged at the entrance of the Wynn Macau where over 300 jets shoot up thousands of gallons of water in the air for an orchestrated dance to the tunes of Broadway, classical or popular tunes. The dazzling show though only lasts for three minutes and runs after a 15-minute interval, leaves an impression that will last for sometime.
