The Parisian Macao (Part Two)

Or should I say, part deux?

Cheesy cliché aside, just want to share a few more snapshots taken during our stay at the Parisian Macao during our anniversary celebration. (Part One is here, where you can take a peek at the room that we stayed in.)

While it isn’t “authentic” and isn’t backed by rich history, the fresco is nevertheless breathtakingly beautiful.

Haven’t explored much of Paris, so I’m not sure if this was a replica of a famous landmark. If you know what it is, please let me know in the comments. It’d be much appreciated!

Love the Parisian skyline on the display. Yes, it felt a bit like a theme park, but in a place that’s been dubbed “the Las Vegas of the East”, you’re there to have fun and embrace the artificial construct and all.

I was highly tempted to get some eclairs or petit fours, but we already had the macarons, so we had to pass on them. 😦

Watching “Thriller”, the resident attraction at the Parisian. It was a wonderfully done tribute that had us out of our seats and singing along to Michael Jackson’s many hits over the years. The King of Pop will always be irreplaceable.

Keeping it short as usual and calling it a night. Bonne nuit mes amis!

The Parisian Macao (Part One)

For our fourth wedding anniversary in October, Edwin and I celebrated at the Parisian Macao, which had opened just the previous month. We were really excited about exploring a brand new hotel and its accompanying shops and attractions. Moreover, it’s definitely a lot more affordable than actually flying to Paris, that’s for sure!

Our spacious hotel room with a view of the Eiffel Tower replica.

The luxurious bathroom, complete with a bathtub for taking long, indulgent baths. Ah, to live like the other side…

As it was our anniversary, we also received a couple of gifts, to commemorate our stay at the hotel!

Macarons! A teensy bit disappointed that there weren’t any chocolate ones, but hey, what’s not to love about these extravagant sweet treats?

A snow globe featuring the Parisian Macao! *heart eyes emoji*

Leaving you with the view from our window. As you can see, it’s got some stunning features, from the gorgeous pools (didn’t swim as it was too cold while we were there), to les galleries, to the mini Moulin Rouge!

Part Two will be up shortly, see you soon!
