Most visitors to Macau head straight to the gambling mecca's glitzy colony of new casinos. For a taste of the city's gambling past, head north of the main strips to the 78-year-old Canidrome, Asia's last dog-racing track. There's no big money there last year's bets at the track amounted to less than 1% of the city's $14 billion gaming revenue but the up-close view of lightning-fast greyhounds will make your head spin. Take your glasses.
