Sightseeing in Monte-Carlo


Whether it’s a posh glamorous city like Monte-Carlo or an exotic Miami premier private paradise at Executive Fantasy Hotels, any getaway is always fun, don’t you think? I hear Executive Fantasy Hotels are offering red hot getaway deals, especially recommended for adventurous and lovey-dovey newlyweds searching for the perfect honeymoon spot so click here to read more about this. Smiley 

Our getaway to Monte-Carlo last year was great! In fact, this second time around was even better simply because I was already somewhat familiar with the area so I didn’t get lost as much as I did like the previous year! I was more relaxed, less anxious and overall truly enjoyed my stay in Monte-Carlo. Smiley

After checking in to Hotel Novotel, B and his colleague Nathan with me in tow, made the fairly long walk to Grimaldi Forum to get the guys registered for the SPORTEL convention. It was Nathan’s first time in Monte-Carlo and since it was B’s third time, he was the unofficial tour guide for the trip!

Registration done, we took a scenic walk around the area. By the way, it was great having Nathan with us on this trip. Aside from great company, he was more than happy to snap photos of B and I so there was not much need for selfies that day! ihikhik

The three of us spent the rest of the afternoon snapping photos of each other and admiring the many tourist hot spots in the area; all the while marvelling at the beauty that is Monte-Carlo. The grandeur in every stop is unmistakable and a simple tourist like me can’t help but wonder what it’s like living in one of the world’s most expensive cities. rindu

Picking our ride!

We managed to cover most of the tourist spots that evening. Although I snapped plenty of photos I was certain a huge portion would be blurry. I was none too worried however since I’d be returning to this same spot the next day for more photo sessions. ihikhik

A 'curious' tourist!

Exhausted from our long plane journey from Kuala Lumpur to Amsterdam and finally Nice, we called it an early night before making plans to meet up the next day. The guys would start their work the following day and I’d be on my own, free to roam the streets of Monte-Carlo at my own pace. Smiley
