‘Take Selfies to Win Prizes’ in ‘Step Out, Experience Macau’s Communities - Walking Tour Routes’ Programme

‘Take Selfies to Win Prizes’ puts visitors in the frame for the trip of a lifetime

Following the launch of the stamp collection fun activity for 'Step Out, Experience Macau's Communities' walking tour routes in June last year, Macau Government Tourist Office (MGTO) is presenting a follow-up initiative that promises to be even more fun - 'Take Selfies to Win Prizes' from now to 30th November, with the objective of developing the territory's tourism community in tandem with smart tourism.

Macau residents and visitors need only download the 'Step Out, Macau' smart phone application (App), take selfies at two designated shooting spots on any of the eight walking tour routes launched by MGTO, present them to staff at any MGTO Tourist Information counter and redeem a souvenir. In addition, visitors can access the 'Step Out, Macau' App to upload selfies and share their travel experiences in Macau to enter a lucky draw, with prizes including two round-trip Business Class air tickets (from the winners' place of residence to any destination) plus tablets and other awards (only visitors are eligible to join the lucky draw).

On 27th September 2013, MGTO launched the first four walking tour routes under the theme 'Step Out, Experience Macau's Communities', and in February this year the existing routes were reconfigured, providing a total of eight walking tour routes designed to encourage visitors to explore different neighbourhoods, whilst balancing visitor flow trends around Macau and fostering community tourism. The eight routes are as follows: Footsteps into the Historic Centre; An Experiment of Creativity; Crossroads of China and Portugal; A Legacy of Arts and Culture; Enchanting Stories of Our Lady of Fatima Parish; The Marriage of East and West in St. Anthony's Parish; Bygone Days of Taipa Village and Nostalgia in Coloane.

Residents and visitors can download the free 'Step Out, Macau' App on App Store and Google Play. More information is available on MGTO's website
