The best things to do at The Parisian Macao
Let’s get the obvious one out of the way first. For $168 on weekdays or $188 weekends, you can climb to the top deck of the hotel’s miniature Eiffel Tower. Sure, it’s not as tall as the original but the view across Macao is almost as spectacular as the one across Paris.
Love Hong Kong’s Symphony of Lights? Then you’ll love this. Every evening a light show takes place every 15 minutes from 6.15pm until midnight. Jazz music fills the air and the Eiffel Tower is lit up from top to bottom, casting a romantic glow. Perfect for Snapchat vids.
Stepping away from the Eiffel Tower now... You no longer need to head to Disneyland Hong Kong if you fancy a spin on a traditional carousel. Petit but delightfully authentic, it’s like something out of the Tuileries Garden.
The hotel’s water park theme is one of the best in either Macao or Hong Kong. There are three slide areas – including the Jules Verne Airship, complete with water guns, tipping buckets, climbing nets – and a 370sqm pool. Being outdoors, it’s not ideal in winter but come summer it’s the perfect place to cool down.
One for families. Specially designed for kids, this 20,000sq ft play area has both indoor and outdoor sections. Designed to be ‘the perfect antidote for boredom at any age’, it features climbing nets, slides, a ball pool, game consoles for tweens and plenty of space for kids to run around and let loose.
If all the above simply sounds too hectic, relax at Le SPA’tique. Winner of the ‘Luxury Emerging Spa, China’ category at last year’s World Luxury Spa Awards, this haven of calm combines the best of French skincare with speciality massages and soothing treatments. Need to kick back and take it easy? This is the place to hit.
