Calypso Cabaret, Bangkok. Thailand

Bangkok is an interesting place, but for many reasons can be not so fantastic for tourists. It is huge and traffic jams are terrible. Taxi and tuk-tuk drivers for sure will try to drive you to shops that are paying them for bringing clients and of course whey will ask three times more than normal rate for a ride.
But it is not all so bad. :) Bangkok is famous for its nightlife, and if you want to experience its "light" version, make sure you got tickets to Calypso Cabaret. It is a performance by trans-sexual and trans-gender artists and it's really good.
The place is usually full, so prior internet reservation is recommended.

casino fun, Macau

According to recent studies gambling industry of Macau is much bigger than Las Vegas. So casino visit is a must-do point for everyone visiting the place. There are several interesting casino in the center - majority of them relatively small and old. Still interesting. But if you are interested in visiting temple of gambling, you cannot miss Venetian. It's huge complex of casinos, hotels, restaurants and shopping areas. There is also Cirque du Soleil. And everything shining, golden and kitsch...
