Macau Government Tourist Office (MGTO) is hosting the tourism promotion event “Experience Macau – Nanning, Guangxi” in Nanning, Guangxi. The outdoor program starts from today (18 February) until 23 February. Through the event, the Office aims to promote the positioning of Macau as a World Centre of Tourism and Leisure among citizens in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region so as to attract Guangxi residents to Macau for a fascinating experience of the unique blend of East and West culture as well as the city’s festive ambience.
The outdoor promotional activities of “Experience Macau – Nanning, Guangxi” take place at the square named Mosaic in Nanning. There are Macau photo exhibitions, culinary delights, souvenir and travel information booths as well as 3D audiovisual projection mapping show, Portuguese embroidering performance and singing performance. The event has attracted many local visitors and livened up the square.
The 3D audiovisual projection mapping show projects 3D images upon the background of various iconic architectures from the World Heritage “Historic Centre of Macau” such as the Ruins of St. Paul’s, A-Ma Temple and Guia Lighthouse in harmony with music. The perfect symphony of light and shadow manifests the diverse culture and scenery of Macau for Guangxi residents to experience the aura of the city in a different way. Visitors not only can obtain brochures which introduce Macau’s latest tourism facilities and products from the travel information booth, but also can get a printed photo on the spot as souvenir by adding MGTO’s account on Wechat. There are happy clowns giving out balloons to visitors, adding a festive air in the event.
Currently there are daily direct flights between Macau and Nanning. Last year, Macau welcomed 400,000 visitor arrivals from Guangxi, a record which ranks high among other provinces and autonomous regions.
