Experience the Titanic as you never have before
Jack: Step up on the railing. Hold on, hold on. Keep your eyes closed. Do you trust me? Rose: I trust you.
Jack: All right. Open your eyes. Rose: I'm flying, Jack!
That was the exact scene from the movieTitanic that replayed in my head as we stood in front of the poster before entering the coolest exhibition I've ever been too. But let's backtrack shall we?
Macao, known as a playground for the rich, the happy and not so happy-go-lucky gamblers, is a city that leaves you in awe. Considered the Las Vegas equivalent of the East, everything screams glamour, money and grand. Casinos line the main Cotai strip, with large hotels filled with tons of upmarket stores, restaurants and amazing decor – from magnificent chandeliers to extensive murals painted all along the ceilings. This is the place my husband and I spent our last night of our honeymoon in Macao.
You're not allowed to take photos in the casino, so we just took a couple in the public areas, fancy ain't it? :)

It's an exhibition that really brings to life the story of the Titanic and the real history behind it. As you enter there are rooms filled with memorabilia, letters and newspapers putting together the timeline of what really happened. Other rooms are replicas of the rooms on the ship itself, so you really feel like you were there. There are so many sad stories that the Titanic has to tell, but there are also some amazing stories too of survivors, and I think that's why interest has spanned over so many decades after the tragedy.
The exhibition left us thinking so much that we ended up watching the movie again when we got back to our hotel room. I suggest that if you get the chance to go to Macao before next February 2013, it is a must see! Especially if you're a lover of the film like I am.
