The mention of "Casino Lisboa" jumped out at me: that's the name of Stanley Ho's joint in Macau. (One of them, anyway.) Haven't been able to find anything online to say whether Casino Lisboa Mong La is a branch or merely homage.

I'm sure Stanley plays rough, but i bet he'd let that particular interference with his intellectual property go by.

MONG LA, Myanmar — The smuggling route into this rebel-run jungle outpost just over the Chinese border begins on the back of a motorcycle that takes passengers through steeply terraced rubber plantations, and skirts the official crossing before ending at an outdoor market where bedraggled prostitutes mingle with Chinese tourists haggling over tiger claws, bear paws and desiccated squares of elephant skin.
