Casino haven Macau set to eclipse Hong-Kong visitor numbers
The number of visitors to the tiny island of Macau rose by an impressive 23 per cent last year, putting the number at 27 million arrivals and the casino capital of the Far East on track to surpass Hong Kong this year.
Hong Kong received 28 million visits last year, a jump of 10 per cent.
Macau is becoming increasingly popular with tourists – it is only a one hour ferry trip from Hong Kong and new casinos are continuously being built. The former Portuguese colony is also developing into an all-round entertainment location to widen its appeal.
