Macau Government Tourist Office Launches the Free Audio Guiding Service

2012-08-13 — / — Macau Government Tourist Office launches the free Audio Guiding Service starting from 27th July to cater for visitors with different needs and to increase visitors’ knowledge about Macau tourist attractions and World Heritage sites. Director of Macau Government Tourist Office, João Manuel Costa Antunes accompanied the media to use the new Audio Guiding Service.

Nowadays, many visitors aspire to individual travel experience and the hand-carry audio guiding service launched by Macau Government Tourist Office matches the free style of individual travelers; visitors can walk around Macau spontaneously, visiting different tourist attractions and world heritage sites while knowing more about their historic background simultaneously through the Audio Guiding Service. The Audio Guiding Service can help to cater for visitors’ different needs. It is believed that the use of the Audio Guiding Service can inspire more interactive experience and fun for visitors, at the same time increasing their knowledge about Macau tourist attractions.

In the afternoon, Macau Government Tourist Office arranged media familiarization groups from Singapore, Malaysia and Guangzhou to be the first to experience this new service. The familiarization group members took a stroll around the Historic Centre of Macau and the tourist attractions nearby while carrying the audio guide device to listen to the explanation on their way.

The Audio Guiding Service is provided for visitors in six languages at present, including Mandarin, Cantonese, Portuguese, English, Japanese and Korean. It is anticipated that the service will strengthen the foreign language guiding service in Macau.

The Audio Guiding Service is available from 9:00am to 5:00pm daily and is free of charge. A deposit of MOP200 is required per audio guide device and will be refunded upon return of the device within three days. The information counter of Macau Government Tourist Office at Senado Square serves as the lending and return location for the audio guide device.

In addition, Wine Museum and Grand Prix Museum now offers Audio Guiding Service for introduction about wine and Macau Grand Prix. Visitors are required to use the audio guide device within both museums only and return by the end of the day with a refund of deposit.
