How to spend 3hrs at Cotai Strip?

I am planning a day tour of Macau through Gray Line from Hong Kong . They have an option of spending an additional 3 hrs at Cotai Strip.

Should I take up this option? What is there to see at Cotai Strip over 3 hrs assuming I will not be able to spend time in a casino as I will have 2 kids with me. What should I focus on?

Thanks

The. 3 major casinos on the Cotai Strip all have shopping malls, especially the Venetian's Grand Canal, with the water flowing through it. COD has a show called the Dragons Treasure which is free if you get the tickets early enough.

The shopping malls in the Venetian are amazing, you may catch some street entertainment. It is modelled after the streets in Venice and even includes a painted sky as well as Canals. Take a look at the website as there are a few additional activities (at a cost) that may interest your kids.

Across the Road, as Zhuhai stated, is the City of Dreams and you may get the chance to see the Dragons Treasure show which runs regularly. I would go there first to try to get tickets, the kids will love it.

There are plenty of places to eat at both places.

We-e-elll ... with 3 hours to spare in Macau and kids in tow, I'd probably get the heck out of Cotai take a 15 minute taxi ride back into town and visit one or more of the excellent little museums (lots of hands-on things), explore parks, gardens & forts, or some combination of the above :-)

Hi zhuhai2007,

You mentioned that we can get free tix to Dragon of Treasures show if we are early enough. From the web site, it is chargeable with a small fee unless you redeem with proof of purchase at COD. So is there a trick to get them free?

Traveling in a week's time. Thks.

You don't say how old your children are but if they are teenagers have you thought of arranging this trip yourself? It's not hard to do and will give you a lot more flexibility.
