More than 32 million visitors to Macao in the first 11 months

More than 32 million people visited Macao in the first 11 months of the year, an increase of 9.1% over the same period of 2017, was announced today.

According to the Statistics and Census Service (DSEC), the number of tourists (16,751,684) and hikers (15,482,154) grew by 7.2% and 11.1%, respectively, totalling 32,233,838 visitors in Macao from January to November 2018.

Visitors are understood to mean any person who has travelled to Macao for less than one year, a term that is divided into a tourist (one who spends at least one night) and a traveller (one who does not stay overnight).

According to DSEC, the majority of visitors come from the interior of China (22,811,627), up 13.3% compared to the same period last year.

The average length of stay was 1.2 days.

In November alone, there were 3,266,283 visitors, which represented an increase of 15.3% in annual terms and an increase of 3.6% in relation to October.

DSEC justified this increase with the commissioning of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau mega bridge, through which 436,660 visitors entered the special Chinese administrative region of Macao.

In 2017, 32.61 million visitors arrived in the territory, 5.4% more than in 2016.
