Wordless Wednesday: The Fortune Diamond in Galaxy Macau Hotel

July 27, 2022

One of the things that you should not forget to do when in Macau is to see the Fortune Diamond located at Galaxy Macau Hotel.

When we traveled to Macau eight years ago, we really didn’t know where to begin on our first day. What we did was walk outside our hotel and just play it by ear from there. The breathtaking Galaxy Macau Hotel caught our attention because, well, it was grand and imposing. Best of all, it was open to the public so we went inside. We were hoping to quickly tour the lobby and then take a bus going to Largo do Senado (Senate Square).

Wordless Wednesday: The Fortune Diamond in Galaxy Macau Hotel

However, something seemingly magical caught our attention while we were exploring the Galaxy Macau Hotel; it was a huge fountain with colorful lights emanating from inside as well as holographic images of swimming mermaids. 

There was music coupled with the sound of rustling water. It was the Fortune Diamond, possibly the best feature of the lobby of the Galaxy Macau Hotel. The Fortune Diamond would briefly emerge from the water, rotate as it slowly moves up, and then descend once more into the fountain.

The Fortune Diamond was as high as three meters. I found out later on that the design of the Fortune Diamond is based on a peacock’s plumes.

More than a spectacular show in itself, the Fortune Diamond symbolizes prosperity and good fortune. It was meant to bring good luck to the players who frequent the casino of Galaxy Macau Hotel. I felt that I instantly became rich after watching the Fortune Diamond.

The show starts at 10:00 AM with 30-minute intervals and ends at 10:00 PM. Everybody is free to watch the Fortune Diamond, even if they are not checked in the Galaxy Macau Hotel.

I took a video of the Fortune Diamond as a keepsake. Unfortunately, I lost that video when my external drive crashed five years ago. I wasn’t able to post it on YouTube because I wasn’t active on that platform at that time.

After that brief show, we proceeded to the bus loading stations and went our way to Largo do Senado for a brief walk into Macau’s rich historical past.
