Macau.- The Labour Day break has seen an increase in visitors to Macau, although numbers dropped to 34,000 on the third day of the break.
May 2 saw 160,000 entries, well over the previous post-pandemic high of 34,353 entries on April 16.
Macau authorities predicted that daily visitors could increase by 20 per cent during the Labour Day Break while the Macao Government Tourism Office forecast a hotel occupancy rate between 70 per cent to 80 per cent.
To increase tourist arrivals, Macau is negotiating with mainland China to allow people who have been vaccinated against Covid-19 to travel between Macau and mainland China without needing to show a negative nucleic acid test.
