MACAO, March 27 (Xinhua) — The Macao Special Administrative Region (SAR) recorded 32,647 visitor arrivals on Friday, the highest daily number since the outbreak of the COVID-19 epidemic last year, the Macao Government Tourism Office said on Saturday.
During the past week from March 20 to 26, Macao registered 27,120 tourist arrivals daily on average, up 109.5 percent from that in the Spring Festival Golden Week holiday and up 77.8 percent from the daily average in February, the office said.
The number of visitors to Macao grew gradually recently as visitors from the mainland do not need to be quarantined thanks to stable epidemic situations on both sides, according to the office.
The office has made multiple efforts to promote Macao as a safe destination for mainland tourists, including organizing promotional events in major cities on the mainland and offering coupons for mainland tourists making payment in Macao on online platforms. Enditem
