If you get lost here, you'll be walking forever. There are so many shops of all varieties that you will get frustrated that you can't get to the place you want to get to with all the distractions. Be warned: very easy to get lost. And that's the way they want you to be.

It was a great experience to shop under a painted blue sky and near canals. It was pretty cool as well as you could get a gondola ride in the canals while the gondolier sings. There is a great selection of shops at both ends of the cost spectrum. Large foodcourt as well but it may be difficult to find... More

Worth a visit. Strange to see the ceiling painted to look like sky and clouds. The gondola rides were a novelty but very expensive, so we didn't take a ride. Good range of shops, all costly of course, no bargains at a place like this!

This was an amazing shopping destination. I use to travel to HK MACAU every year and would never miss out on shopping at the grand canal. However the choices of brand has gone bigger but the good brands are now missing.

Very similar to the one in Vegas, this Venetian also possess the same interior designs - It does however feel larger. Walking through here, especially around the canal itself can be a little taxing when crowded as you dodge all the people taking photos. All in all, it's a pretty cool experience with many many shops.

If you consider that this shopping area with canals and gondolas is inside a cassino, this already worth the visit. There is a great selection of shops and famous brands. Price are the same, but the place is convenient. Food court is little messy, but there other restaurants inside which you can eat and relax.

From romantic gondola rides on one end and garden on the other, the Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian @macau offer more than your average mall trip. Mostly in the evening, as the tour groups begin to leave the Venetian, the Grand Canal area becomes more enjoyable, this is when its a nice time to stroll the Canal area and... More

Come to see the hordes of people taking photos of the papier-mache-looking buildings (if you get the lighting right, the photo can look a lot less fake than reality) and the tourists on very short gondola rides through shallow water filled with money and a bit of rubbish (at least the gondoliers can sing well). The shops are the same... More

In general, the shops aren't nearly as crowded as other areas of the Venetian. The shops and canals are slightly pretty, or at least interesting. There was a guy that kept trying to sing O Sole Mio, and did a decent job, but couldn't quite make it sound as good as the Italians. There are some things that are rather... More
