The world's largest casino, $2.4 billion Venetian Macau Resort, opened on August 28th. Along with numerous development projects, Macao is just like a huge construction site now. Some people are worried that natural and cultural beauty will be sacrificed for the sake of urban development. Manfaiw laments(zh): “In the future, the prospect of Macau will be limited by casinos’ neon lights, … Macau has become a place for working, but not for living. Our home is not home anymore.”
