It is a city full of great contrasts - despite being only 32.9 km2 in size, Macao is home to an array of premier conference and exhibition venues and world heritage scenes, one of the world’s most iconic skylines, and a unique blend of Chinese and Portuguese cultures. The diversity of the city is widely reflected in its lifestyles, food cultures, architectures and festivities.
In line with the expansion in convention and exhibition sector, as well as the overall development in lodging, retail, dining and entertainment areas in recent years, Macao has been attracting a growing amount of Business Tourism visitors and incentive travelers worldwide.
Business and incentive travelers can host different business exchanges and team building activities of all scales in Macao, while corporate clients and bleisure travelers may also opt for some relaxation at the city’s fully-integrated resorts, and enjoy a joyous time with exciting entertainment and fun-filled activities the city has to offer.
As of 2018, there is a total of 116 hotels premises offering approximately 39,000 hotel rooms to visitors in Macao. Among those, 25,000 rooms are located in the city’s five-star hotel and resorts.
Diverse Entertainment Offering
Macao is a city of blended cultures and diversity. From local architectures to religious rituals, customs to food offerings, every bits and pieces of the city carries a unique way of life and a modern vibe that sees high-rise buildings coexist with 25 UNESCO World Heritage sites in close proximity.
Macanese food, a fusion touch of Portuguese, African, Southeast Asian and Chinese cuisines, has been well-received by locals and tourist and begun to gain international recognition in the past decades. With a rising number of renown restaurants and star-studded chefs setting foot in town, the city continues to grow a reputation in the field of gastronomy.
Varied shopping districts in Macao ranging from shopping centres to fashion boutiques, antique sellers to daily flea markets, are here to cater to every conceivable need of sophisticated shoppers, while a wide selection of performance shows and exciting events are also available all year around.
Ever since the commencement of Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge in late 2018, commuting between Macao and the Greater Bay Area city clusters has never been more convenient. Macao can be accessed by air, by sea and by land. With ferry and coach services operating routinely, travelers can opt to enter Macao through Hong Kong and China at ease; while the Border Gates in Macao Peninsula and the Cotai Frontier Post also serve to be convenient portals for travelers to enter from and travel back to Mainland China.
