Is for the rich. I thought I saw it all in St Tropez but Monaco was one of a kind. The moment I was in Monaco, I realised, this is THE place for the rich! Because parking costed 24€ for about 5 hours. The whole place was packed. If you have been to Hong Kong, the whole place is x100 tighter. There were layers of apartment buildings in Monaco, all of them stacked around each other.
The roads are so freaking small too. Here so quick facts I took off Wikipedia (again, hehe)
Monaco also has the world’s highest life expectancy at nearly 90 years (94 for females), and the lowest unemployment rate at 0%,with over 48,000 workers who commute from France and Italy each day. For the third year in a row, Monaco in 2011 had the world’s most expensive real estate market, at $65,600 per square metre. According to the CIA World Factbook, Monaco has the world’s lowest poverty rate, and the highest number of millionaires and billionaires per capita in the world.
So I really thought I could find a rich man there and live happily ever after and as long as possible but there were no men available to bait. *frowns* These people are so rich that they can afford a yatch AND a helicoper.
Cars as such were available everywhere.
I ended up in the biggest casino in Monaco instead, hoping to bring back lots of money with me. This is me all smiling before I surrendered 10€ (entry fees= + 10€ to the Monte Carlo Casino.
The interior is very impressive.
Even the toilet was an experience for me. It was all white and gold. The toilet seat turns around every time one flushes. Of course, the flush worked using censor. So cool!
(Updated) Okay, I found the video and a photo I made in the toilet. Yea yea very jakun like that. Hahaha!! I know the toilets in Japan maybe cooler because they have water spray (bidet) front and back, heat on seat, etc but this is cool too.
As a first timer in the casino, I was very excited to try my luck with 10€. I looked carefully and found everything too complicated for me, black jack, poker….too much. I settled for the slotmachine and lost almost all of my “investment”. Boo-hoo! No luck!
With my signature smile, I continue touring Monaco and bid her farewell after paying the freaking expensive parking fees.
