With bright lights, flamboyant architecture and quirky gimmicks seemingly everywhere on Macao’s Cotai Strip, it can be hard to decide which mega-hotel is worth checking out. The Parisian Macao is one that should definitely be on any visitor’s list, though. Complete with replica mini Eiffel Tower, it’s an integrated resort all about making you feel like you’re well and truly in France – mime artists, buskers and street performers gather and perform in the complex’s grand boulevards, which are tastefully crowded with sidewalk cafés and bistros.
If a holiday in Paris remains a pipe dream, hop on the ferry and see the next best thing. And while you’re there, why not check out some of Macao’s best coffee shops or the city’s secret corners.
