In an attempt to attract more tourists to Macao, the Macao Government Tourism Office has started to offer travellers free direct bus tickets from Hong Kong International Airport to the Macao Port at the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge. The initiative is primarily aimed at international tourists and travellers, as well as Taiwan visitors, who could, by taking the bus, easily extend their trip to Hong Kong with a stop in Macao.
The service, which started on 1 January, is hoped to enhance travel between Hong Kong and Macao and to make both destinations more attractive to tourists. The Macao Government Tourism Office is working together with a bus company in order to guarantee the connection between the two destinations.
Even though the service won’t be automatically integrated into the plane ticket, travellers who are interested in the offer can easily apply for free bus tickets. In order to do so, they will have to pay a visit to the dedicated bus service counter. Based on travel documents and boarding passes and some necessary details they will be able to receive complimentary bus tickets. The offer will be available throughout January 2024 and the free tickets are issued on a first come first served basis, limited to availability.
The Macao Government Tourism Office has launched the offer through several (social) media outlets, hoping it will attract as many tourists as possible. As there are many events planned in Macao during the promotion period, travellers will have more than enough reasons to jump on the bus. The light festival Light Up Macao, the 22nd Macao City Fringe Festival and the MGM Macao International Regatta are just some of the scheduled events.
