Located at the lower right side of the Ruins of Paul's is Travessa da Paixao, otherwise known as 'romantic lane' in Macau. The beautiful Portuguese-styled buildings along the lane are well-preserved with the pastel pink and yellow exteriors, adding the sense of romance to the lane. The potted flowers lining the road look like as if they were hung from various buildings. In addition, there is a love movie theater specializing in showing some famous love-themed films, which makes it an ideal hidden site for dating.
Locals always say this place is a sacred destination for young couples to fall in love. Walking on this lane brings you an illusion of being in Europe. Tourists can take photos and capture the charming view of as they would definitely have something to brag about on social media. Nowadays, this love lane has become a popular filming location for many operas and movies. If you are wandering around Macao, remember to take a stroll along Travessa da Paixão for some stunning photos. Of course, before you leave that spot, you could get a sneak peak at the Ruins of St. Paul's at the end of the lane!
Sharing with you everyone on my recent trip to Macau - when I first started planning my Macau itinerary, I knew I had to check out The Parisian. Owned by Las Vegas Sands, its landmark feature is the half-scale Eiffel Tower, like the Paris Casino in Las Vegas. One glance at the half-scale Eiffel Tower that stands outside and you can be sure they are not kidding about the theme. The Parisian Macao is a vast casino and luxury hotel, an absurdly opulent greatest-hits collection featuring Versailles-worthy interiors at reception and a reproduction Fontaine de Mers in the lobby. The rooms are more contemporary, though they don’t shy away from their French inspiration, and the restaurants include a perfectly Parisian brasserie alongside Vietnamese and Chinese options. In typical Vegas/Macau style, the list of entertainment, leisure, and shopping offerings is a mile long — safe to say the Parisian is a self-contained world of luxury and it is also connected to the Venetian, if you fancy a trip to Italy.
The Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery was one of my unique experiences in Hong Kong and it is a great addition to any Hong Kong itinerary. As the name suggests, the monastery is filled to the brim with thousands of golden Buddha statues which awed me and they accompanied me up the steep hill to the monastery. Everyone has to climb more than 430 steps and it takes at least 20 to 30 minutes to reach the monastery at the top of the hill. I loved the calm, tranquil atmosphere of this sacred place. Part of the charm of the monastery is its setting. Surrounded by lush, green forest, the monastery is a bit out of the way in the suburbs of Hong Kong. But this just adds to its charm.
