the restriction.
Therefore, we can speculate on the quality of customers staying in the hotel.

Smoking Restriction in a public Place in Macau




Smoking is no longer permitted at an extensive list of public venues in Macau, starting from
the beginning of January 2012. These include, among others, workplaces, hotels (except rooms
and outdoor areas), restaurants, commercial areas, banks and government buildings.

The only two exceptions are casinos, exempt from the ban for one year and allowed to establish
non-smoking areas; and saunas, massage parlours, bars and clubs, which have three more years
before they need to comply. In order to ensure the complete application of the smoking ban,
the Health Bureau has created a special office. The fine for smoking in restricted area ranges
between MOP400 (US$50) and MOP600. However, people can receive a 50 percent discount
if they pay the fine within 15 days. In the first two days since a wide smoking ban was enacted
in Macau, over 750 venues have been already inspected, with 16 people being fined, according
to a press release from the government. Seven of the fined people were tourists.

Casino business in Macau will have to split their floor in two to comply
with new smoking rules.

Macau Business reports that after the period during which casinos were exempt from the blanket
ban expires, they will be able to set aside up to half of the casino floor for smokers. The new rules
also state that casino workers will have no right to compensation should they fall ill from second
hand smoke as, according to the Health Bureau director Lei Chin Ion, it is not an 'occupational hazard.'

マカオ(澳門)を訪れて驚かされるのは、その規模の大きさとラスベガスと並ぶ遊戯性である。
毒蛇の頭を連想させるグランド・リスボーナホテルはマカオ・カジノ建築の象徴のようでもあるが、
現実とはかけ離れた空間を演出してくれる。ホテル利用客は増加の一途をたどっている模様で、
リッツカールトン、JW マリオットホテルは2015年までに1,300室の大規模ホテルを完成させるとの
発表をしている。沿岸にはいくつもの高層コンドミヌアムが立ち並び、活発な中国資本の流入を
示唆している。不況の日本にとって、香港やマカオの経済発展は、誠にうらやましき限りである。

マカオでは2011年1月より受動喫煙防止法が公布され、レストラン、商社商店、銀行、官庁など
公共的施設が全面禁煙となっている。ホテル客室は私的空間との解釈もあり、喫煙規制法から
除外されている国が多い。調査した12ホテルのうち、3ホテルで喫煙客室の割合が81.4%-91.7%
であったのは驚嘆したが、その設定がギャンブラー目的の宿泊客たちの要望に答えたものかどうかは
分からない。ホテル関係者には喫煙客室と禁煙客室を区分けする意味、3次喫煙の有害性をよく
理解していないものもいる。明確な設定を設けずに需要に応じて使い分けてるホテルもあるようである。
シェラトン・マカオホテルは敏速に喫煙客室を割り出せず、固定化した禁煙客室、喫煙客室の設定が
あいまいとも受け止められた。北米のシェラトンホテル・グループが客室の全面禁煙化したことなど、
どこ吹く風である。あるホテル関係者は、喫煙客室は壁などの汚れ、悪臭を伴うのでリノベーションの
時は全面的に改修せねばならないと話してくれた。

マカオで受動喫煙防止法が施行されたとき、カジノは1年間の猶予期間が与えられた。非喫煙者の
ために、50%以上のスペースを禁煙遊技場とすることも定められている。筆者の訪れた12月は
まだ強制的な禁煙スペースが設置されてがなされていなく、テーブルに灰皿が常備され、タバコを
吸いながらゲームしているギャンブラーを多く見かけた。トイレは喫煙フロアに置かれていたため、
途中で少なからず副流煙を浴びてしまったが、巨大カジノ施設、「グランド・リスボーナ」では
1階と地階とが全面禁煙、2階が喫煙カジノとなっており、条例の要件を先取りしていた。
