In the tourist area of Venetian Macau, there are the Venetian styled buildings, canals and plaza. The most amazing thing is that all of these are on the third floor of the resort hotel. The Grand Canal Shoppes is also on the third floor and is the largest indoor shopping mall in Macau with an area of 22 acres and with more than 350 stores.
There is a Grand Canal Shoppers area where, as in Venice you are able to relax on a gondola as the pier is near the plaza with the trip taking 15 minutes accompanied by songs from the gondoliers. The San Luca, Marco Polo and Grand Canals are all named after the famous Venetian canals. Beside the canals there is the San Marco Square, which was also named after the Italian plaza. An artificial sky is created at San Marco Square with Grafik 5000 lighting control system to present different levels of light with the ability to give the desired blue sky effect at any time of day.
