Macau visitor number hits highest single-day record

The number of visitors in Macau has reached the highest single-day record on Tuesday since the Covid pandemic. Among the 90,391 visitor arrivals on Tuesday, 53,244 were from the mainland and 32,210 from Hong Kong. In total, Macau recorded 244,664 visitors over the first four days of the Lunar New Year. Average daily visitor arrivals reached over 61,000, a year-on-year surge of 277% percent. Macau had only 15,000 average daily visits in 2022. The world's biggest gambling hub has seen a resurgence of tourists from China since January 8 after the SAR dropped all Covid testing requirements for inbound travellers from the mainland, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Citibank said the surging tourists will speed up the recovery in gross gaming revenue which may rise by 26% year-on-year to reach 8 billion patacas this month.
