This is the weekend to celebrate Easter and spring all at once in Macau! While Artyzen Grand Lapa Macau has crafted an all-day, fun-filled slew of activities for the whole family, there’s also a fantastic spring-welcoming disco party after hours, perfect for unwinding this weekend. For an egg hunt and other cool things to do with the kids, head to Taipa Village and remember to take lots of pictures for sweet memories! Foodies, we highly suggest Lobby Lounge’s new vegan menu with originally crafted dishes for everyone to see whether meatless Mondays can be a thing. There are also other gastronomic adventures, some cultural exhibitions, and more to enjoy this weekend and spend time with the gang.
