Macao Welcomes Tourists with Free Bus Service from Hong Kong

Macao is set to welcome tourists with a new initiative that offers a free bus service from Hong Kong International Airport to Macao, started on January 1, 2024.

This move by the Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) aims to enhance the travel experience for international and Taiwan region visitors in Hong Kong, encouraging them to extend their journey to Macao.

The introduction of this free bus service from Hong Kong is a strategic step to boost twin-destination tourism between Hong Kong and Macao and to tap into a more diverse range of international visitor markets.

The free ticket offer for the direct bus service is part of MGTO’s effort to energize the travel intentions of international and Taiwanese visitors, making Macao their preferred destination. This collaboration with the bus service operator is a significant move to facilitate seamless travel for visitors upon their arrival at Hong Kong International Airport. Eligible travelers can simply head to the direct bus service counter at the airport, present their travel documents and boarding passes, and register with the necessary information to obtain their free bus tickets. This service, which leads travelers directly to the Macao Port at the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, is available for unlimited use during the offer period. However, it’s important to note that the tickets are subject to availability and are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

For those interested in taking advantage of this offer, detailed information, terms, and conditions can be inquired directly from the bus service operator. Visitors are encouraged to visit the official website at or to contact the operator via telephone at (853) 6567 0900 (Macao) and (852) 3193 9188 (Hong Kong), or through email at [email protected].

In addition to facilitating travel, MGTO and the bus service operator are set to roll out a range of online and offline promotions for the free ticket offer. These promotions will be featured on various social media platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, Tiktok, Line, and Kakao, aiming to reach a broad audience. The promotion is timed perfectly with an array of upcoming events in Macao, attracting more international visitors to spend their festive holidays in the city. These visitors will have the opportunity to experience Macao’s latest elements and facilities in “tourism +”, a concept that combines traditional tourism with innovative and modern experiences.

This initiative is more than just a travel convenience; it’s a part of MGTO’s dedication to destination marketing. By offering the free bus service from Hong Kong, MGTO aims to expand visitors’ length of stay and spending in Macao. This approach not only enhances the tourist experience but also contributes to the economic growth of the region. The free bus service is a testament to Macao’s commitment to making travel accessible and enjoyable, thereby strengthening its position as a leading tourist destination in Asia.

As the world continues to open up and travel resumes post-pandemic, initiatives like MGTO’s free bus service are crucial in reviving the tourism industry. They reflect a forward-thinking approach to tourism management, where convenience and accessibility are key to attracting and retaining tourists. As Macao gears up for this exciting new chapter, it stands ready to offer a warm welcome and a seamless travel experience to visitors from Hong Kong and beyond.
