The Philippines is Asia's hidden gem in regards to the future of casinos and gambling in Asia. Upon landing in Ninoy Aquio International Airport you are immediately greeted by the glittering lights of Resorts World Casino Manila and its three hotels. It's not Macau but its a nice welcome for a gambler. You can get off your long journey and relax for the night at the casino. The country is actually littered with gambling in the various PAGCOR or PAGCOR licensed casinos and clubs which are complete with both table games and slot machines. These reach all over the country. Thunderbird Resorts also operates here with a few Fiesta Casinos in operation.
But the latest and most exciting news is the addition of the new, Entertainment City in Metro Manila, which is well on the way to becoming a real destination for tourists. Entertainment City is a complete tourist destination with situated by the Mall of Asia, an amusement park and other family activities. There other smaller casinos just outside this district, too, but the main draw here are the new multi-billion dollar casino resorts being built. The first to open is Solaire Casino and Resort. Solaire has a second phase which is nearly completed and will open soon, too. Melco Crown Entertainment Philippines is due to open the City of Dreams Manila this 2014. These are world class resorts located right next to an already popular entertainment district (Mall of Asia or MOA as it's called, is Asia's largest shopping mall). All of this is located right on Manila Bay..... which brings us back to the next multi-billion dollar projects on the way to Entertainment City, "Resorts World Bayshore" and "Manila Bay Resorts" - both of which have incredible plans for incredible all in one resorts with wave pools, casinos, high end shopping and more.
Outside of Manila where there really is a lot of casinos and gambling going on, check out Clark and Angeles City. Both of these places have multiple casinos with some resorts. All together the Philippines has well over 50 casinos to choose from currently and more on the way.
