With that in mind, let’s take a look at a few places to get your gambling fix in Asia.

Singapore

For a nice tropical climate, great cuisine, beaches nearby, a thriving tech economy for you digital nomads out there, and thriving casinos. Specifically, places like Marina Bay Sands Resort illuminates the Asian skyline. It’s a beautiful sight to behold from the street, to be sure.

Another resort is the Resorts World Sentosa on the neighbouring island of the same name. Finally, be sure to check out the Universal Studios theme park, which in addition to being an amusement park that is fun for the whole family, boasts a casino to boot.

Macau

The Asian Mecca of gambling, the Las Vegas of the South Eastern Peninsula, this place is renowned for its gambling for good reason. The ‘Monte Carlo of the Orient’ as it is known has even overtaken Las Vegas by some estimates in terms of revenue, which is an accomplishment in and of itself. This highly developed former Portuguese colony sports everything from Texas Hold ‘Em to Roulette, as one would expect, in places like the Casino Lisboa, the Grand Lisboa, and the original Stanley Ho hotel.

A nightlife monument that might stand as a wonder of the world all on its own also includes the Galaxy Macau, sporting its own private beach in addition to a grand total of five outdoor swimming pools. You will not be lacking for swimming options here! With over 30 casinos to choose from in this tropical haven, gamblers will not leave disappointed.

South Korea

Although renowned for its growing high tech sector on a global scale, South Korea does have a thriving casino industry. The only downside for citizens of the country is that they themselves are not allowed to enter these establishments, so they have to rely on online options like here, but that will not stop the rest of us from frequenting gambling institutions in the country, will it?

Both around the sprawling, thriving capital of Seoul and on the island of Jeju-do, you will find offerings such as Paradise Casino Walker Hill, Korea’s largest casino overlooking the Han river and featuring accommodating facilities the likes of which foreigners have been enjoying for decades. The island houses some eight casinos if the biggest and brightest is not your cup of tea. In addition to the glorious natural surroundings, you will have plenty of choices for gambling there.
