For 2017 and beyond, I think we will likely see accelerated casino resort development in Southeast Asia, especially Vietnam and Cambodia. I think patrons will favor resort setting casino resorts with exotic beauty and rich amenities over urban casinos. The shifted demand patterns calling for total resort experience instead of just gaming. Personally I think ‘Club Med with Gaming’ would be appealing concept for Asian, especially Chinese patrons.
