Shhhhh! What Happens in Macau, Stays in Macau!
How does a weekend of clubs, casinos and cold drinks sound? Discover the Las Vegas of Asia and be there in just over 3 hours from Seoul or Busan
You've put in your time. You've worked hard. Now, you deserve a weekend of excess and relaxation. Well, maybe relaxation isn't exactly the right word. If it's relaxation you're looking for, I'd suggest yoga, but if you're looking for a weekend of excitement and action, then Macau has what you're after.
Macau offers casinos, night clubs, shopping, dancing, and lots of stuff that is probably best left discovered by you and not printed here!
This is one vacation where it may be possible to come home with more money than you left with...feeling lucky?
"Las Vegas's days as the capital of excess may be numbered" NY Times
NY Times: The $2.4 billion Venetian Macao Resort will give Sin City more than a run for its money. The Venetian has more floor space than four Empire State Buildings. The hotel’s slot machines, baccarat tables and other games of chance sprawl across a casino more than three times the size of the largest casino in Las Vegas. The 15,000-seat sports arena nearly rivals Madison Square Garden, the convention center has a 6,000-seat banquet hall and the luxury shopping mall has three indoor canals with singing gondoliers; the Venetian in Las Vegas has just one.
Hop on a flight and be in a new country in just a few hours
One of the benefits of living in Korea is that we can hop on a flight and be in a different country in just a few hours and for a few hundred thousand won. During your stay in Korea, it seems to make sense to take advantage of this and see as many places as you can, doesn't it?
One way to be sure to see as much as possible is to take advantage of the short flight times and inexpensive tickets to take weekend trips. It's amazing how much you can see in just one weekend.
Instead of taking a bus trip across Korea, take a flight across Asia!

Some People Regret Not Doing More With Their Time in Korea. How about you?
First year teachers in Korea start at about a minimum of 2 million won per month. Most weekend trips can be budgeted for less than half of that amount. When people first apply with us, we are always interested in finding out what they want to do with their time in Korea.
Everybody says that they want to travel to different countries in Asia.
Of course! It makes sense. I did the same thing. Actually, I'm still doing it! Being in Korea and having access to so many great places is one of the benefits of the job. What I don't like to hear is when people finish their year and they regret not having done all they wanted to do.
When I first arrived in Korea in 1999, nothing got me more excited than hearing the veterans talk about recent trips they took to exotic places like Thailand, Malaysia, Bali, Hong Kong, Japan, China and other destinations. I was amazed at how many places they had been and wanted to do the same. I wanted to be part of that "travel across Asia" lifestlye.
After 5 years of teaching, I was able to join the conversation!
You really can't put a price on travel. Every trip you take exposes you to new ways of thinking, new ideas, and new traditions. It is impossible not to come back home with new ideas buzzing around in your head and it's impossible to get rid of the travel bug once you've been bitten. Once you start that collection of stamps in your passport, you want to keep it going.
OK, so where do I sign up?
Right here actually! Just fill in the form below and you will be e-mailed by an English-speaking representative of Kangsan Travel within 24-36 hours to confirm travel details and explain the payment method.
