was 2.39 mil­lion, rep­re­sent­ing an in­crease of 0.7 per cent over April 2012. The In­dian mar­ket con­trib­uted to the growth again with a dou­ble digit growth of 12.8 per cent.

Ac­cord­ing to San­Jeet, In­dia Repe­sen­ta­tive MGTO, “Ma­cau is fast be­com­ing a favourite with the In­dian tourists be­cause of its peren­nial charm. In­di­ans love the op­u­lence of Ma­cau. From awe-in­spir­ing UNESCO world her­itage sites like the Ru­ins of St. Paul to the Ma­cau Tower, the very best in mod­ern ar­chi­tec­ture; it of­fers rich at­trac­tions to ev­ery­one.”

MGTO has been work­ing ex­ten­sively to ex­plore the In­dian mar­ket. All ef­forts are be­ing made to at­tract the In­dian trav­eller to Ma­cau. MICE move­ments are also con­tribut­ing sig­nif­i­cantly to the up­surge in the num­ber of In­di­ans trav­el­ling to Ma­cau. Ma­cau is con­sid­ered to be one of the hottest wed­ding des­ti­na­tions by the event man­age­ment and wed­ding plan­ning in­dus­try. Ho­tels are of­fer­ing spe­cial pack­ages and fa­cil­i­ties for In­dian wed­dings be­ing or­gan­ised in Ma­cau.

Ma­cau is one of Asia’s new­est and most ex­cit­ing busi­ness tourism des­ti­na­tions, af­ter a pe­riod of rapid and un­prece­dented in­fra­struc­ture de­vel­op­ment.

San­Jeet adds, “Ma­cau re­alises the im­por­tance of the grow­ing In­dian econ­omy and wel­comes In­di­ans by pro­vid­ing them seam­less travel and value-for-money. With more and more lux­ury ho­tels and re­sorts open­ing up, Ma­cau surely has gained pop­u­lar­ity as one of the most sought- af­ter tourist des­ti­na­tion in Asia. In 2013, all ef­forts will be made to at­tract the In­dian trav­eller. We have been see­ing a steady in­crease in num­bers over the past few months, and we are sure the mo­men­tum will be main­tained in the com­ing months too.”
