Macau.- In a bid to boost domestic tourism, the Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) has announced that it will resume the “Stay, Dine and See Macao” initiative from September 18.
The scheme lets Macau residents book government-subsidised staycations at hotels and guest houses. It was temporarily halted after local cases of Covid-19 were detected in Macau. It will now remain in place until the end of December with 13 adjusted itineraries.
According to the MGTO, between April 15 to July 31, nearly 32,961 people signed up and 17,492 hotel packages were sold through the initiative.
Due to the outbreak of local Covid-19 cases, Macau carried out mass testing for Covid-19, in which 716,251 people were tested, all of them returning negative results.
The MGTO has predicted the city could receive 30,000 visitors per day during the October Golden Week. Last year, the number of visitors entering the city surpassed 20,000 a day on average.
