Unlimited access to Essential Macau along with 5,000+ other digital magazines and premium stories
Launched in 2011, Essential Macau has rapidly become established as Macau's leading luxury lifestyle magazine targeted at the most affluent visitors to the ex-Portuguese colony that, in recent years, has become the world's number one gambling destination. Contents focus on high-end consumer goods and luxury living.
Less than a decade ago, the stretch of land between the islands of Taipa and Coloane was just a piece of landfill full of rubbish that could not be burnt at the local incinerator. Five years from now, that same piece of land will be home to around 100,000 employees, mostly in hotels and casinos. The transformation of Macau is still in its early days and but it's already seeing some new names: Donatella Versace is to design the new SJM (one of the gaming operators) Palazzo; Steve Wynn, with his exquisite taste, will bring us another palace; and then there is the beautiful “jewellery box” that will be MGM’s new property. Not to mention the new phases of the Galaxy and Melco’s Studio City.
