The Macau Government Tourism Office (MGTO) is launching a promotion for visitors to the city in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the handover. The Office will hold monthly lucky draws on the 20th day of every month between May and November. The first round of the lucky draws was held yesterday.
On the 20th day of each month in the promotion period, tourists can visit MGTO’s information counters at the Outer Harbor Ferry Terminal, Taipa Ferry Terminal, Macau International Airport or the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge’s Macau Port to enter the lucky draw.
Participants will have the chance to win souvenirs including locally-designed magnets with special cultural and creative elements. These magnet souvenirs were designed by local businesses following a partnership struck with MGTO.
Designed to be part of a “series”, the monthly souvenirs are imbued with the diverse colors of the tourism landscape in Macau from events and festivals, cultural heritage to signature delicacies and other elements, according to the Office.
Visitors can collect and piece together the seven monthly magnet souvenirs won from the lucky draws into an image of Macau’s famous landmark – the Ruins of St. Paul’s.
According to the tourism authority, the collectable nature of the souvenirs has the purpose of encouraging repeat visitation to Macau.
During the period, the local cultural and creative business involved in the partnership also launched another series of magnet souvenirs designed for sale, available in limited quantity for purchase through souvenir vending machines at designated locations. Interested visitors can purchase and collect this series of souvenirs themed after the 20th Anniversary of the Establishment of the Macau SAR. DB
