The Macau Metro Monitor, November 28, 2012




Ambrose So said, “Most hotels in Cotai will be 5-star ones; we want to meet the different needs of a wider range of customers, in the hope of their longer stay in Macau…It is a good direction, if we could have more affordable hotel accommodation in order to satisfy a varied spectrum of customers."  Dr. So also expressed his agreement with the proposal put forth by Angela Leong for a complete smoking-ban in casinos. “I think it’s doable. The wind air curtain that divides 50 percent of the smoking area with the remaining smoke-free areas is never effective. Eventually, after two or three years, you have to give in to the ban all together, why not do it now?” Furthermore, SJM said they may consider expansion into the Hengqin new zone, “It depends on how the customers change,” So reflected. 



The Marine Life Park at RWS in Singapore has drawn 12,000 people since it opened last Thursday.  Saying it is pleased with the response over the first weekend of operations, a Marine Life Park spokesman said it believes the numbers will increase in coming weeks when "our overseas marketing picks up and if the weather turns, hopefully, dry for our Adventure Cove Waterpark".  Besides the waterpark, the other allure is S.E.A. Aquarium which currently has 40,000 animals from 500 species.


Admission tickets for the S.E.A Aquarium and Adventure Cove Waterpark are sold separately at $29 per attraction for adults, and $20 per attraction for children and senior citizens.
