New for Ma­cao

Travel Bulletin - - MACAO -

MA­CAO con­tin­ues to grow as an ac­tion-packed hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion with ev­ery new ho­tel and at­trac­tion built across the city-state. Re­cent months have seen the ex­pan­sion of the Galaxy precinct along with the de­but of the lav­ish 400-room St Regis Ma­cao ho­tel with its ex­clu­sive Irid­ium day spa and spec­tac­u­lar views of the Co­tai Strip.

Later this year Ma­cao will see some ma­jor new de­vel­op­ments in­clud­ing the Parisian ho­tel boast­ing more than 2,900 rooms and a replica half-size Eif­fel Tower which will sit at the ho­tel’s en­trance. The tower is tipped to be­come a huge draw­card for the penin­sula fea­tur­ing ob­ser­va­tion decks with views to China’s main­land and a gourmet restau­rant.

An­other ex­cit­ing de­vel­op­ment for both kids and kids at heart is the world’s first player-cen­tric “Live Ac­tion Role Play” theme park. Set to open this month, Planet J theme park at Sands Co­tai Cen­tral is an in­door fan­tasy world where play­ers can phys­i­cally act out fan­tasy char­ac­ters in a vir­tual set­ting. Ev­ery­one who plays is armed with a ’magic scroll’; a per­son­alised mo­bile app con­nect­ing to over 200 games across the park.
