Getaway and Gamble in Asia

One of the biggest attractions to the Asian gambling industry aside from the cheap food, drinks and tropical beaches is the regions expanding casino industry.

Cambodia

In Cambodia the casinos are booming with the main casino located in the country’s capital of Phnom Penh. NagaWorld provides players with cheap accommodation, free food and drinks, night clubs, restaurants, relaxing beer and wine rooms as well as a cheap Tuk Tuk journey to the local night spots.

The casino also offers poker at $1/$2 stakes as well as a host of gambling table options including Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat (Punto Blanco), Craps and more. The table minimum on most of the casino’s games is $10.00, but in the VIP room and upstairs areas you’ll find the higher stakes options.

Surrounding the table games is a flurry of electronic roulette, speed baccarat, and some of the latest in slot machine themes. Many of the slots you’ll find in Nagaworld are already available online in your online casino. If you book a room in this establishment, you’ll get a free no deposit casino bonus of $10.00 to exchange for chips.

Philippines

In Manila the casino scene is growing fast giving the largest casino scene in Asia, Macau, a run for its money. As the customer satisfaction rates decrease in China’s number one gambling location, the casino industry in Manila has been attracting an increasing number of visitors, who are mainly Asian residents. Ex-pats from Thailand are probably the number one clientele as Thailand still hasn’t decided whether or not the country will allow gambling in selected zones.

Probably the most popular spot for tourists is the Metro Manila area. Here you’ll find a host of VIP casinos. Texas Hold’em poker has become particularly big with massive poker events regularly visiting the area. The Asian Pacific Poker Tour has made the Philippines a regular stop.



The second largest area for casinos in the Philippines is Central Luzon. Again you’ll find a number of establishments also including luxury accommodation to get your money on the tables.

Macau

 Macau is the most expensive stop of all the Asian casino regional options. If you are flush and don’t mind spending that little bit extra on your stay, then Macau is the place for you. Known for its high end casino and resort establishments, The City of Dreams has long been the place of choice for high stakes gamblers in Asia. Even PokerStars has its own poker room located in the City Dreams Casino establishment.

Aside from the city being made up of casinos there is plenty to do, and the whole area is completely safe. Safety is something that lets the Philippines down. Unfortunately, Manila isn’t high on safety ratings. As for Cambodia, there is very little danger around the city, but there are still some social issues, although they are minor and you’ll rarely see them.

Safety is probably the one thing that gives Macau its edge, but it comes at a high price. For those looking for a less expensive gambling excursion in Asia, Cambodia is cheap and relatively safe, while the Philippines is also cheap, but you can’t wander too far from your casino. The one thing the Philippines has going for it over Cambodia is its vast selection of establishments.
