The Easter holidays (March 29th – April 1st) fall in March. According to official statistical data, the number of visitors arriving in Macau reached 330,000 for the first three days, with visitor arrivals peaking on the second day at 122,000 visitors.

As Easter is not a public holiday in Mainland China but is in Hong Kong and Macau, Macau has recorded some crowds on the HKZM Bridge due to the increase in tourist traffic volume coming from Hong Kong.
