The Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) participated in the 'World Conference on Tourism Cooperation and Development 2023' held in Beijing, China, with the primary objective of advancing Macau's 'Tourism +' strategy.
Macau’s tourist numbers in July return to 80 percent of pre-pandemic levels, with increase led by mainland Chinese and Hong Kong visitors.
Macau has received some 11.6 million visitors in the first half of the year, and authorities in the city are expecting nearly 24 million tourists by the end of the year.
After handing out government subsidies for nearly six months, Macau's Tourism Office (MGTO) decided to discontinue half-price ferry and bus tickets for Hong Kong visitors starting in July. However, the promotion's plans for overseas that began in mid-April will maintain.
Macau’s International tourist arrivals doubled from the first quarter of the year to 3,000 to 5,000 daily, and the average daily visitor arrivals reached 60,000. The figure was shared by the director of the Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) on Tuesday.

Macau's tourism bureau says that up to 3,000 hotel rooms are currently out of use due to a labor shortage in the city.
