24 May 2016

Macau received 9.92 million visitors from January to April, a number that represents a marginal decrease of 0.3 percent over the same period of 2015, reported the Statistics and Census Bureau.

The number of visitors from mainland China (6.59 million) and Hong Kong (2.04 million) dropped 1.0 percent and 3.0 percent in annual terms, but South Korea (217,580) and Taiwan (343,010) rose 3.7 percent and 11.1 percent, respectively.

In April 2.47 million visitors entered Macau, 3.0 percent fewer than in the same month of 2014, which the Bureau said was due to the Easter holidays occurring in different months in April 2015 and March 2016.

In April, visitors stayed in Macau for an average of 1.1 days, or an additional 0.2 days compared to the same month of 2015. (macauhub/MO)
