Macao Government Tourist Office dedicates website to gastronomy

At the end of 2022, the Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) launched its brand-new website “Gastronomic Journey” which highlights why the region is now a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy.

Macao‘s new website will be of great help for professionals who want to highlight the importance of food as part of the identity of the former Portuguese colony.

The online platform provides a wide variety of videos about gastronomy, culinary arts and food culture, as well as optimised features for research. There is a video series named “Macao Flavours a Culinary Legacy”, “Sino-Portuguese Style”, “Taste of Macao”, “Discover the Taste at Macao Distinctive Shops” and “Macanese Cuisine”. Users can search for different kinds of local delicacies by category.

Residents and visitors can discover more about what the region has to offer as a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy.

The website also enables easy planning of food trips, which will bring about more spending in communities and propel the development of Macao’s tourism industry and economy. The MGTO hopes that visitors can look for palate-tempting delights and learn about their stories through the video series, offering them a glimpse into the area’s diverse offer as a Creative City of Gastronomy.

New features to find easily Macao favourite food places 

Through graphics and writing, the website gives an overview of the region’s journey in its application for UNESCO’s designation as a Creative City of Gastronomy. Viewers can revisit the historic moment when it was listed by the prestigious institution.

The new webpage is equipped with a search engine on the “Quality Tourism Services Accreditation Scheme” (QTSAS). Users can conveniently search for high-quality restaurants which offer accredited services.

With the feature of “Macao Gastronomy Map”, users can also follow food connoisseurs to try recommended food and check in at popular restaurants. Restaurants under the columns of “Distinctive Shops” and “Macao Classic Brands” help discovering hidden gems known for their delicacies in local neighbourhoods. 

The MGTO is also focusing on catering small and medium enterprises, giving a glimpse of the charm of these local businesses which are part of the community life. The “Gastronomic Journey” website is permanently updated and upgraded by MGTO for a continuous better experience for users.
