"Sands China is dedicated to giving our guests and visitors unforgettable and extraordinary experiences -- The Parisian Macao will do just that," said Dr. Wilfred Wong, president of Sands China Ltd., who officiated at the event. "As Macao moves toward diversifying its tourism industry, The Parisian Macao and its iconic Eiffel Tower will provide visitors with a new variety of non-gaming and family-friendly attractions. And as Macao continues its development as a world centre of tourism and leisure, Sands China is pleased to contribute to that development with our integrated resort city on Cotai."
The light show at the Eiffel Tower at The Parisian Macao will be a shimmering beacon on the Cotai Strip when the resort opens, lighting up nightly at dusk, providing an ideal backdrop for photo opportunities for visitors and guests alike.
Made of steel, the half-scale authentic recreation of the Eiffel Tower at The Parisian Macao includes more than 6,600 light bulbs and 26 kilometers of electrical cabling, equivalent to 10 times the length of the Governador Norbre de Carvalho bridge. After the official launch of The Parisian Macao in September, visitors will be able to take two elevators to the top observation deck of the tower which will take approximately 40 seconds.
Offering everything you have come to expect from Sands China's resorts -- and more, The Parisian Macao will have a full array of integrated facilities including approximately 3,000 guestrooms and suites; more than 150 boutiques with the latest in luxury fashion designers, couture and lifestyle brands; daily entertainment from French-themed Streetmosphere characters to an eclectic mix of street artists, mimes, and buskers; an abundance of magnificent dining options; as well as world class theatrical and entertainment shows in the purpose built 1,200-seat Parisian Theatre.
