In August of this year Macau received a record 1.086 million visitors, or a year-on-year rise of 7 percent, the region’s Statistics and census Bureau said.
This figure means that 100,000 people per day visited Macau, which has an area of just 30 square kilometres and a population of over 600,000 people.
Of that total 2.13 million visitors were from Mainland China, 13 percent more than in August 2013, with most from the provinces of Guangdong (960,800), Fujian (95,400) and Hunan (86,400).
In August the visitors remained in Macau for an average period of 1.0 days, the same as August 2013.
From January to August 21.1 million visitors entered Macau, which was an annual increase of 8 percent, while those from Mainland China and South Korea increased by 14 percent and 19 percent respectively, in annual terms. (macauhub/MO)
