We saw this show last night. Like most of the prior reviews, well worth seeing this show. A mix of gymnastics, swimming, ballet...who can wonder what that would be like? Very entertaining. This is our first visit to Macau. We bought tickets a few days in advance and ended up buying VIP tickets, as the show was mostly sold out.... More

Like all the huge Las Vegas style resort hotels this is located in the upmarket Cotai Strip area the Venetian, Hard Rock, Wynn etc. This place is massive even by Vegas standards and even has a double ferris wheel in the middle of the hotel structure shaped like a "lucky 8". Hotel, shops and entertainment city, we got the free... More

An amazing show reflecting abnormal capabilities, training, and synchronization of performers. A mix of fitness, accuracy, production facilities, theater arrangements, lighting, and vehicles Highly recommended. Book early to select best seats

If you don't see 'The House of Dancing Water Show', then you are going to miss the best thing of Macau. Expensive at 540 HKD per person, this 1.5 hrs show of gymnastics is truly amazing. Their stage, their artists are truly world class. All hotels in this part of Macau are combination of shops selling luxury items and casino... More

We visited here this January 2016 where it's winter season. It was freezing cold outside but City of Dreams apparently maintains a warm and relaxing environment. Kids have enjoyed their latest entertainment spots like the XBox Kinect. Every turn inside City of Dreams will wow you with their life-sized statues of iconic artists and famous people, and some weird and... More

The reason why this is called the City of dreams is because it really lived up to its standards, ones can find whatever you dreamed of in this city. For Casinos, shows, wines and dine to almost anything a person ever wanted. But be careful of your wallet running dry in this city of dreams!

I gave it 4 stars because the House of Dancing Water is an amazing show but that is the only reason to visit. It used to be a pleasant place to walk around but there are now some renovation works and to get to the show you have to walk through the casino which is not a very pleasant experience... More

The show here is unbelievable! Unlike anything you have ever seen, tickets are a bit pricey but definitely worth it :) can't say much about the actual casino because I didn't have much time to explore it but it also looked great
