Last Updated(Beijing Time):2007-03-03 12:42
Ten ferries are to be added to the Macao-Hong Kong route as more casino projects are under construction in Macao, local media reported Friday.

The Macao Post Daily quoted Las Vegas gaming mogul Sheldon G. Adelson as saying that he has ordered the ferries from a Australian company for his gigantic casino resort which is under construction in the city's Cotai island.

The Venetian Macao project will boast four casinos and 20,000 hotel rooms, Adelson was cited by the newspaper.

The new ferries will help bring more Hong Kong gamblers to Macao, according to the newspaper.

Hong Kong residents dominate some 30 to 40 percent of the tourist arrivals in Macao annually.
