Breakfast in Sands Cotai Central (@Rice Empire)

The fourth day of my Macau trip started. I will have breakfast, first.

In Sands Cotai Central where I have been staying, there were several restaurants which were open in the early morning and I visited “Rice Empire” among them.Macau Sands Cotai Central Rice Empire1

“Rice Empire” served Asian cuisine and I chose “Hainanese Style Chicken Rice (海南雞飯)”.Macau Sands Cotai Central breakfast

“Hainanese Style Chicken Rice (海南雞飯)” is a Singapore local dish and I ordered it for a change.

Morning Stroll

Just like the third day, I am going around casino resorts in Cotai area on the fourth day. Many shops don’t open in the early morning, so I will go around the casino resorts I visited on the previous day and take photos of its exteriors, first.

Walking around City of Dreams

From here, I will walk around other casino resorts. I started my stroll from “City of Dreams”. City of Dreams is located as follows.Macau Cotai Strip map

“City of Dreams (新濠天地)” is a casino resort opened in 2009. It is the second casino resort in Cotai area following the Venetian Macao, which was opened in 2007. City of Dreams is run by “Melco Resorts & Entertainment”, which also runs Studio City Macau.

Let’s go into the building.""

Just like other casino resorts, there was a shopping mall and I went around it.""

The mall was two-storied and some areas had open ceiling space.Macau City of Dreams2

It was cool, wasn’t it?""

The car was longer than I imagined.""

There are four hotels in City of Dreams and one of them is “Morpheus”.Macau City of Dreams Morpheus1

Morpheus, which was opened in 2018, is the latest hotel in City of Dreams and its design is avant-garde.Macau City of Dreams Morpheus2

I am just wondering how fantastic the view from the elevator is.Macau City of Dreams Morpheus3

Needless to say, there were casinos in City of Dreams.""

However, I didn’t step into the casino and just took photos.""

There was a restaurant district “SOHO” on the second floor and I will just take a look at it.Macau City of Dreams SOHO1

It was before lunch time, so many shops were closed when I came here.Macau City of Dreams SOHO2

Nevertheless, I felt it had good atmosphere and I would like to revisit it if I have another chance.Macau City of Dreams SOHO3

Finally, I just stopped by the lobby of “Grand Hyatt Macau” and will move to the next destination.Macau City of Dreams Grand Hyatt Macau

That’s it for the article about City of Dreams as part of Day 4.

From what I have felt so far, casino resorts have different characteristics by its operating companies. For example, the Venetian Macao and the Las Parisian Macao, which are run by Las Vegas Sands, emphasize its luxuriousness while City of Dreams and Studio City Macau, which are managed by the same company, focus on the sense of design. City of Dreams has four hotels and visitors can choose it depending on their budget, so I am thinking of staying here if I have another chance to visit Macau in the future 🙂

In the next article, I will write about MGM Cotai and Wynn Palace as part of Day 4.
