Travel Bulletin - - MACAO -

Ben Zaubzer from Ma­cao Gov­ern­ment Tourism Of­fice let’s us in on all the in­sider knowl­edge on how to sell this great city.

How can agents im­prove their knowl­edge of Ma­cao?

Agents can be at the fore­front of “Need to Knows” and “How to bet­ter sell Ma­cao” by down­load­ing the lat­est ver­sion of the Ma­cao Bul­letin from our www.vis­it­ site un­der Travel Tips. This six page Fact File pro­vides a large va­ri­ety of in­for­ma­tion like, Sim­ple Facts and Need to Knows, At­trac­tions and Fam­ily Fun, Cui­sine and eating out, Get­ting around Ma­cao and most im­por­tant Some­where to Stay.

What kind of train­ing is avail­able for Aus­tralian agents want­ing to sell Ma­cao, and how can they sign up?

If you want to know more about Ma­cao it’s pretty sim­ple. We have rep­re­sen­ta­tive of­fices in both Syd­ney and Mel­bourne. All you need to do is send me an email on bza­ubzer@world­trade­ with a date and time and we can make it hap­pen.

Any rec­om­men­da­tions for first time trav­ellers?

If you have never been to Ma­cao be­fore I def­i­nitely would start with a min­i­mum three night stay. I would def­i­nitely try all the new at­trac­tions like Dream­works, Warner Bros and the amaz­ing shows like House of Danc­ing Wa­ter, Ta­boo and House of Magic. But, the old side to Ma­cao is where the charm lies, the His­toric Cen­tre, its old and new, lo­cal fam­ily run Ma­canese restau­rants, this is what makes Ma­cao a unique des­ti­na­tion for me.

What makes Ma­cao a unique des­ti­na­tion?

Ma­cao’s unique­ness lies with its his­toric east meets west char­ac­ter­is­tics where the Chi­nese and the Por­tuguese have lived in har­mony for five cen­turies. Where the mar­riage of cul­tures, cui­sine and tra­di­tions live side by side. Now it of­fers a per­fect blend of con­tem­po­rary and his­toric, mod­ern re­sorts shar­ing the same ad­dress as UNESCO World Her­itage listed ar­chi­tec­ture and parks. A piece of Por­tu­gal in Asia.

And fi­nally, how can travel agents join a famil?

Let me know how you are or could ac­tively pro­mote and sell the des­ti­na­tion, or what tools you need to bet­ter sell Ma­cao. But to be hon­est, each famil is dif­fer­ent and tai­lored to the needs of the agent, the busi­ness or cam­paign/in­cen­tive we have run.
