Following the reinstatement of travel permit issuance for Mainland residents to Macau since 23 September 2020, Macau Government Tourism Office (MGTO) has been strenuously promoting Macau as a healthy, safe and quality destination to attract Mainland visitors for travel and spending in Macau. The “Beijing Macau Week” and the “Macau Week in Hangzhou” were organized last September and this March respectively to showcase the city’s diverse offer of fascinating travel experiences as well as commercial opportunities to locals and visitors in the respective Mainland cities. Furthermore, the Office has been exploring and leveraging different channels including various media, KOLs, social media and online travel platforms in the Mainland to raise Macau’s profile as a safe and quality destination. More promotional efforts will be rolled out to seize the timing of the upcoming 1st May Labor Day holiday, with the hope to draw more Mainland visitors to Macau for vacation and spending, in turn expanding visitor source and spurring economic revival.
