About Greyhound Race Course in Macau
Greyhound Racing is the organized and competitive sport in which greyhound dogs have to race around the track. Greyhound racing has two forms, i.e. track racing and the coursing. Track racing make use of artificial lure which travels ahead the dogs on the rail until that crosses the finish line. This is also the racing in which the public will be the audience and people can only witness. In the coursing, dogs get to chase the lure which may be a rabbit or hare which may get killed by the dog. Many of the country has greyhound racing as amateur and just for the purpose of enjoyment. In the places like Macau and many others greyhound racing is the one which forms a major part in the gambling industry. The fact is that greyhound racing is not very profitable as that of horse races and so it implies too much of pressure on the dogs and they get very little care.
The History of Greyhound Racing

Shanghai had large canidrome which was built in the year 1928 that became very popular entertainment venue.

Rajdeep's 7 days trip to MacauIt was a good experience, Overall the trip went well, There were a couple of minor hiccups which were dealt professionally by Mr.Chanpreet from Holidays2Cherish. We are very happy with the services. Surely we have a lot of memories to cherish. Only thing which could have been better was the Hong Kong city tour, it would have been better if there was any option of full day city tour covering some more tourist attractions. It was a good trip overall. The guides were good and helpful. Macau tower Skywalk experience was the best(this was not included in the package), closely followed by Disneyland.
