Macau’s tourism recovery is showing no sign of slowing down with preliminary figures revealing the city’s hotel occupancy rate reached 92.2% in July – soaring above the 84.3% occupancy rate recorded in June.

The Macao Government Tourism Office issued a notice on Wednesday outlining a raft of figures from recent weeks, with July representing the highest hotel occupancy rate since the COVID-19 pandemic. Previously, in June, the number of hotel guests had exceeded 36,000 to hit 102.2% of June 2019 numbers, aided by greater hotel room supply.

The MGTO also highlighted the return of international tourists, with an average of 7,393 foreign arrivals per day in July.
