Venice is in China

The latest hangout place for the gamblers is probably The Venetian which was only open a couple of months back. Almost every landmark in Venice has been replicated here. If you just look at those landmarks from a distance, you would have thought that you are really in Venice.




The Campanile (bell tower) was built with all the details intake.




The scaled-down Palazzo Ducale (Doge's Palace) also looks like the real structure in Venice.




The lining up of replicas did not stop at the outdoor structures, it is actually extended to the interior. Oh my! They really want you to have hallucination!








I was expecting to see the replica of Basilica di San Marco at the St. Mark's Square but unfortunately it wasn't built. Only the clock tower was there.




There were also 'replicas' of street artistes.




The washroom was definitely well-worth a visit, as I know now the definition of a 'golden toilet.'




Even the mosaics on the ceiling were replicated, except that the replica was painted on.




I almost believed that I was in Venice, if not for the noise of dice rolling and playing cards shuffling.
