Macau Government Tourist Office (MGTO) launched today (12) a fun activity “Take Selfies to Win Prizes” under the project of “Step Out, Experience Macau’s Communities – Walking Tour Routes”, inviting residents and visitors to join. The fun activity aims to encourage residents and visitors to explore the beauty of different areas of Macau, thus boosting community tourism and smart tourism development.
Following the launch of the stamp collection fun activity for “Step Out, Experience Macau’s Communities” in June last year, MGTO is presenting this year the initiative “Take Selfies to Win Prizes”, aiming to develop tourism community as well as smart tourism.
From June 12 until November 30 this year, residents and visitors only need to download the “Step Out, Macau” smart phone application (App), take selfies on two designated shooting spots of any walking tour route, present them to staff of any MGTO Tourist Information counter in Macau and redeem a souvenir.
In addition, visitors can also access “Step Out, Macau” App to upload selfies and share their travel experience in Macau, to enter a lucky draw, with prizes including two round-trip air tickets in business class (from winner’s place of residence to any destination), tablets, and other awards. (Only visitors are eligible to join the lucky draw.)
MGTO launched on 27 September 2013 the first four walking tour routes under the theme “Step Out, Experience Macau’s Communities”, and in February this year, the existing routes were redesigned with a total of eight walking tour routes presented, to encourage visitors to explore different neighborhoods, while also balance visitor flow trends around Macau and foster community tourism development.
The eight routes are as follow: Footsteps into the Historic Centre; An Experiment of Creativity; Crossroads of China and Portugal; A Legacy of Arts and Culture; Enchanting Stories of Our Lady of Fatima Parish; The Marriage of East and West in St. Anthony’s Parish; Bygone Days of Taipa Village and Nostalgia in Coloane.
On weekends, MGTO presents different performances at certain sightseeing points along the tour routes, further enhancing livelihood to their specific neighborhoods. Moreover, the Office joins hands with local organizations to present community tourism activities and boost the charm of the communities. With the variety of activities offered, visitors can enjoy a more fantastic stroll along these routes and explore different local quarters for hidden gems and a glimpse of the city’s aroma.
Residents and visitors can download the free App “Step Out, Macau” on App Store and Google Play. More information is available on MGTO’s website http://www.macautourism.gov.mo and Tourism Hotline (853) 2833 3000.
