Visitors continue to flock to Macau, proving the success of the city’s efforts to bounce out of its post-COVID funk.
During the recent Dragon Boat festival period, some 350,000 visitors charged the territory, with over 100,000 visiting on the primary day of the festival.
The majority if visitors continue to arrive from mainland China, despite the government’s and operators’ attempts to diversify the markets.
“The majority of the visitors came frme mainland China, also because the holiday is limited to Thursday in Hong Kong and Macau,” notes Macau’s tourism director Helena de Senna Fernandes.
The official points out that this holiday is more accessible for the mainland Chinese market, and that it’s not representative of Macau’s overall tourism portfolio.
“We have seen a strong stability in the tourism numbers, given that the sectors can continue their upward growth and recovery,” notes the official.
