Recovering Macau to start accepting tour groups again
Macau, August 31, 2017

The Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) will resume group tours starting September 2, following a temporary cessation to facilitate resource allocation for the city’s recovery from recent typhoons.


The decision was made after MGTO reached a consensus with travel agency and hotel industry associations at the end of a dialogue on Tuesday.


Water and power supply restored at most hotels, main tourist attractions intact


During the meeting, MGTO learnt that most hotels and guesthouses already have their water and power supply resumed, while the other services concerned are being restored progressively.


Since the catastrophe, MGTO has been sending inspectors to patrol various ports of entry and tourist attractions to keep abreast with the latest situation.


MGTO said in a statement that major tourist attractions have remained intact after the typhoon.


It will contact China National Tourism Administration and its counterparts in Shenzhen and Hong Kong regarding resumption of tour groups to Macau.
