Eiffel Tower Light Show at The Parisian Macao, Macao

I was completely mesmerised by the sight of Eiffel Tower as I was entering Parisian Macao Resort. Anybody would be! While the size of this Eiffel Tower is half of the original one in Paris, its location right in front of the Luxury Hotel has enhanced the grandeur of The Parisian Macao several times. Some brilliant planning there!

I have seen the original one in Paris, yet instead of reducing the awe factor around it, this recreated model has taken the captivating feel to a newer level! As night set in the Eiffel tower light show started. It was lit up completely from top to bottom. It seemed to be dripping of several colors with some accompanying music. The view of this lit up Eiffel Tower from the north facing hotel rooms is grand. Do try and select those rooms if you are making a reservation in the hotel.

The Eiffel Tower Light Show

Watch out for the illumination shows of The Parisian Macao Eiffel Tower.  The spectacular nightly light and sound that features on the façade of the tower creates a shimmering beacon on the Cotai Strip. This Eiffel Tower light show at dusk provides an ideal backdrop for photo opportunities. Daily light show is available from 6 p.m. to 12 a.m. with music every 15 minutes. The tower is always lit. (Note: Light show schedule is subject to change.)

Love Lock Bridge

They have even created a replica of Pont des Arts, though not to any scale. Only the River Seine is missing. This Love Lock Bridge is the open-air bridge. It connects the main building to the Eiffel Tower 7/F observation deck. If you are keen to put a lock there you can bring your own or purchase one at the souvenir kiosk on the 7/F observation deck.

  1. Does that feel a bit weird? To see a little bit of Paris a long, long way from France? Isn’t there a saying about mimicry being the highest form of flattery? I do admire the passion of people who show their love for a place/building by constructing their very own version! Thanks for sharing. It looks amazing.

  2. I have heard a lot about this Eiffel tower in Parisian macao !! The hotel seems to be amazing. The facts mentioned about the original Eiffel tower and the new one built in 2015 were quite awesome to know. It seems to be really like the original one and the addition of the bridge makes it more realistic! We missed visiting the Parisian Macao as we focussed on the Venetian Macau when we visited a couple of years ago.
    Seems an awesome place to visit!!

  3. This is nice! The light show is fun to watch. I want to go back to Macau. I might consider staying at Parisian Hotel too.

  4. Wow! You sure are lucky to witness the light show! I’ve been to Macau last year but unfortunately, Parisian wasn’t open yet and still under construction so we’ve only went to Venetian Macau (http://www.maayalegaspi.com/2016/06/macau-grand-canal-shoppes-at-venetian.html). I’ve also been seeing this mini Eiffel tower all over my feed whenever my friends come to Macau. hehe. Was the light show stunning or was it normal? Either way, the mini tower alone is a good reason to come and see macau. Not mentioning the other skyscrapers and high end casinos. 🙂

  5. wow, you have just made me regret by reading this. I went to Hong Kong recently and I wasn’t able to make it to Macau, maybe next time if times permit again. Anyway, knowing that you have seen the original one, you were still amazed on this tower light show and it must be such a wonderful experience. I couldn’t wait to go back to Hong Kong and will surely go Macau. Thank you so much for sharing this.

  6. This sounds really interesting to know about another replica of Eiffel tower.It seems the light show is fascinating.The view from observation deck is really nice.Hope to visit there one day!

  7. Nathalie says:

    Wow, you really did your research for this! Usually when one writes travel posts, it’s more about the experiences and such. You went a step further with all those presented facts. So cool! Makes me want to go check it out myself since going to Macao is so much easier than going to Paris. 😀

  8. Sriparna says:

    Well, I am really awed by the entire concept of building a famous monument replica… It’s good, no doubt, but at the same time, not quite right (in my perspective)… While the light shows, love lock bridge and everything look so nice, it’s just going to keep giving you the feeling of non-originality, no? The hotel no wonder is just marvelous… I am glad you enjoyed your stay and as always, a great share:)

  9. Jerny says:

    When we go to Hongkong, we’ll make sure to drop by Macau. We have friends there as well. And as you mentioned, I don’t wanna miss this Eiffel Tower Light Show!

  10. This is absolutely beautiful! I am sure I will be mesmerized myself! It would be a lovely experience to visit this place one day. I sure hope I can with my boys soon!

  11. Maria says:

    I’ve been dreaming of seeing the Eiffel Tower or Paris in real life. Well, Parisian Macau is a step closer to the Paris in France. It’s makes me remember Ratatouile. Anyway, you’re so lucky!

  12. Jeevan says:

  13. Jeevan says:

  14. theresa says:

    One of my dream goal is to visit Eiffel Tower. Now that I discovered that it’s in Macau, I think my dream to witness it is coming true. It’s easier to go to Macau. And cheaper too.

  15. Chrysoula says:

    I have heard of an Eiffel Tower in Vegas not the one in Macao. It looks so close to the original one in Paris. The view from the observation deck is fantastic.

  16. Danik says:

    I been to Macau and its totally amazing but never saw this Eiffel Tower light show> It sounds amazing.

  17. Amelie says:

    Oh wow, I had no idea there was a replica of the Eiffel Tower in Macao! Only knew of the one in Vegas 😉 How cool is that!

  18. Yan says:

    Great informative post about this beautiful landmark in Macau! If that’s only half the original one, I wonder how majestic the real one is at Paris! 😀 Awesome lights show!

  19. Megan Jerrard says:

    Wow I had no idea that the Parisian Macao had an Eiffel Tower too – they’ve definitely taken it to the next memorable level with their light show! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  20. Wow! That looks EPIC…almost as big as the original one. I guess this is next best thing to visiting Paris, with even more party and fun around 🙂

  21. Oh! Did not know about this. This is so cool! The light show looks beautiful and the view is stunning as well.

  22. How does it feel seeing little Paris? I love how other countries show what you can find in another places.

  23. Nisha says:

    I would say it is an equal feat to be able to build a half size size replica to the exact design including the observation deck. What a great idea to have the “love Lock Bridge” replicated here. It would be fun to put one there and see after a few years if it is still there. All in all it sound exciting.

  24. I’ve seen the original and the scale model in Las Vegas but this is something else entirely. Would love to watch the light show. Macao is an intriguing place.

  25. Tatum says:

    I had no idea they had something like this here! The view from up top is soooo amazing. I was thinking at first it looked similar to the one in Las Vegas. Seems like Paris is all around the world! Definitely need to check this out.

  26. We remember standing in a trance when the Iron lady dazzled in the golden shimmer in Paris. Though the grandeur of Eiffel tower in Paris is unbeatable it would be a different experience watching a miniature tower so far away from Paris at Parisian Macao. The hotel looks fab too.

  27. Megan Indoe says:

    I love visiting Vegas and was always curious about visiting Macau! When we do make it I want to check out the light show! The Eifel Tower seriously looks like the real one in some of your photos! Incredible!

  28. sam says:

    I’d love to see this! Such a fascination, a miniature world so far away! Great post! 🙂

  29. That is a one well-researched article. I always believe that facts add so much more depth to our travel experience. And yes, light shows are always amazing.

  30. Bhushavali says:

    Wow! That’s cool! Seen the original one in Paris. It would be such a pleasure to see a miniature one! Thanks for the tip about the north facing rooms!

  31. Gosh what an amazing thing to do – and what a fun experience. Definitely on my list if I get to visit Macau

  32. Suruchi says:

    I had heard about the Parisian Macao Eifel Tower and the light show. Its really amazing and the facts you mentioned have made this post much more interesting. Will love to make a visit here. Your pictures are awesome.

  33. Heather says:

    Wow, the attention to detail is just incredible. Your photos of the tower and it’s surroundings made me think of Las Vegas. Thanks for sharing all the fascinating facts and tips, I’ll be sure to check out the Eiffel tower if in Macao, and stay in a north facing room of course 😉

  34. Rachael says:

    Very beautiful. I bet the light show at night is amazing. I have seen some of the replicas but this one looks the best!

  35. I’ve never heard of the Eiffel Tower replica in Macao. That’s still impressive that it’s so big even if it’s about half the height of the original. It looks pretty cool all lit up too!

  36. Jodie says:

    Oh wow I thought there was only a replica in Vegas! Seeing the Eiffel Tower in Paris sparkle is one of my favourite things in the world so it would be pretty cool to see these multi colours too!

  37. Ana Ojha says:

    Glad to know that there is a replica of Eiffel tower somewhere else too! Personally, I’ve never got a chance to see the real one but I saw the replica of Eiffel Tower in Las Vegas as well as Disney’s Epcot at Walt Disney World!

  38. Colby says:

    Those garden views! Amazing! I never even knew Paris Macau existed. It reminds me a bit of the Paris hotel in Las Vegas, and oddly enough they call Macau the Vegas of Asia (or something to the affect). I’d love to visit here someday.

  39. Anne says:

    oh wow this looks really cool and I had no idea it even existed. How fabulous. Hard to believe that it almost did not survive the world fair but then structures like that have an habit of sticking around – think Atomium, BXL and the London Eye

  40. Gokul Raj says:

    Love the mini Eiffel Tower. Pretty sure this will not come anywhere near the original one.

  41. Jenna says:

    Love this! I love the light show at the Eiffel Tower in Paris, so this would be fun to see as well! Looks like a great spot to visit!

  42. Tae says:

    I never knew if this light show was worth it – and I love the duplicate locks. For Francophiles, this is an awesome place to visit and enjoy a tiny glimpse of Paris 🙂 Romantic, too! I loved the fun fact section 😀

  43. Guy Crotty says:

    It’s crazy the amount of money which gets spent in casino cities to replicate something from somewhere else….Macau does sound pretty cool though.

  44. Joanna says:

    It’s so hard to imagine that there is an Eiffel Tower somewhere else in the world, besides Paris. It looks so similar with the original one. I can’t believe they even have the bridge of chains, exactly the same as in Paris. Macao seems to be a very interesting place to visit.
