Chinese bookings for Macau during the Golden Week holiday are increasing. Macau hopes to recover after a weak Chinese New Year.
Macau.- The Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) has high hopes for the upcoming Golden Week holiday, from May 1 to 5.
MGTO hopes to achieve nightly occupancy of between 40 and 50 per cent at Macau hotels.
Macao Government Tourism Office director Maria Helena de Senna Fernandes said an increase in tourist numbers during the Golden Week holiday will depend on a stable Covid-19 pandemic situation in China.
Local media also reports that the largest online travel agency in China has seen bookings for flights to Macau rise by 20 per cent compared to 2019.
Macau currently has a quarantine-free travel bubble with mainland China.
Meanwhile, to promote domestic tourism, Macau has launched an initiative dubbed “Stay, Dine and See Macao” to let Macau residents book government-subsidised staycations at more than 70 hotels and guest houses.
