Eiffel Tower at the Parisian Macao
There’s a fee to gain access to the observation decks of the Eiffel Tower at the Parisian Macao, although guests at the Parisian sometimes enjoy free entry. It’s also possible to book lunch or dinner at La Chine. The main attraction here is the 360-degree views across the Cotai Strip and downtown Macau, which can be particularly special at night when the resorts are lit up. As with the original Eiffel Tower, there’s not a great deal to see inside the structure.
Things to Know Before You Go
The Eiffel Tower at the Parisian Macao is a must for travelers who love views.
It can get surprisingly cool on the top-floor observation deck on a windy day. Bring a layer.
During typhoon season, the Macau Eiffel Tower may close at times of high winds.
The observation decks at the Macau Eiffel Tower are not wheelchair-accessible.
How to Get There
The Eiffel Tower at the Parisian Macao is the centerpiece of the Parisian resort on Macau’s Cotai Strip. It’s located between Studio City and the Venetian, about 2 miles (3 kilometers) southwest of the airport. Regular shuttle buses connect it to the border gate, the Taipa Ferry Terminal, the Macau Ferry Terminal, the Lotus Port, the airport, and the Venetian.
When to Get There
The Eiffel Tower at the Parisian Macao is open from late morning until late evening seven days a week. Most will find the views most interesting after dark, when the lights go on at the surrounding resorts. For a less crowded experience, visit early in the day, and avoid Chinese public holidays.
Why Is Macau So Like Las Vegas?
Macau makes more money from gambling than the entire state of Nevada, let alone Las Vegas, and has since 2010—much of it driven by ultrawealthy Chinese from the mainland. Unsurprisingly, many of Las Vegas’ biggest operators have casinos on the island. Las Vegas Sands owns the Parisian Macao and the Venetian Macao; Steve Wynn founded the Wynn Macau; and there’s also a 600-room MGM Macau.
