Capitalizing on easing of pandemic border measures for Hong Kong residents, Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) promptly activated its advance marketing plan to unfold a broad array of promotional initiatives and special offers, including the one on transportation services between Hong Kong and Macao to unfold this Friday (13 January). Committed to energizing Hong Kongers’ intention to travel, spend and stay longer in Macao, the Office aims to stimulate Macao’s tourism and economic growth, reviving the tourism industry and other related sectors.
Special offers on bus and ferry tickets widen visitor source and encourage overnight stays
The border and pandemic measures have successively loosened. Individuals entering Macao from Hong Kong are exempt from presenting proof of their COVID-19 test result. Visitations from Hong Kong, as Macao’s second-largest visitor source market before the pandemic, are expected to invigorate the local tourism industry. As land and sea transportation services are resuming operation between Hong Kong and Macao, 24-hour border-crossing is restored at the port of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge as well. The East Car Park of the Border Checkpoint Building of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge has resumed operation with the offer of free parking for the convenience of Hong Kong visitors driving to Macao, to widen the source of visitors.
To boost Hong Kong residents’ intention to opt for Macao as their top choice of destination, MGTO partners with several operators of Hong Kong – Macao transportation services to launch buy-one-get-one-free offers for Hong Kong residents in the form of free return ticket for use on another day, upon purchase of shuttle bus or ferry ticket to Macao from 13 January to 31 March. The special offer is set to encourage visitors to stay overnight and longer in Macao. The service operators currently presenting the above special offer include Hong Kong – Macao Express, TurboJET and Cotai Water Jet. More are expected to join successively.
