MACAU, 2014-12-17 — /Travel PR News/ — Starting today (15 December), Macau Government Tourist Office (MGTO) is staging a new series of 3D mapping shows around the themes “Past”, “Present” and “Future” respectively at three different tourist spots in celebration of the 15th Anniversary of Macau SAR Establishment together with visitors and local citizens.
Organized by MGTO and co-organized by the Civic and Municipal Affairs Bureau (IACM), the new series of 3D mapping shows will be staged at the Handover Gifts Museum of Macau, Our Lady of Carmel Church on Taipa and Chapel of St. Francis Xavier on Coloane from 8:30 p.m. – 10:30 p.m. during 15 – 31 December. Citizens and visitors can enjoy the shows for free. Every show spans about 10 minutes. The show on Taipa comprises an interactive session, and therefore its duration will depend on spectators’ participation. MGTO Director Maria Helena de Senna Fernandes, Deputy Director Cecilia Tse and Head of Tourism Product and Events Department Isabel Augusto officiated the kick-off ceremony.
This series of 3D mapping shows revolves around the theme “Past • Present • Future”. Themed as “Past”, the show will manifest Macau’s transformation through the history upon the exterior wall of the Handover Gifts Museum of Macau; during the interactive session about “Present”, spectators can take part by designing the 3D mapping show to their own style with the installations in front of Our Lady of Carmel Church on Taipa; whereas the show about “future” will display local children’s drawings at the Chapel of St. Francis Xavier on Coloane.
3D mapping shows are popular among locals and visitors in recent years. The Government has arranged such shows at historic monuments like Ruins of St. Paul’s and Mandarin’s House on the World Heritage site in the past. For a period of 15 days this April, MGTO also staged a 3D mapping show named “Icons • Macau” at Macau Fisherman’s Wharf – one of the tourist attractions along the walking tour route “A Tour of Arts and Culture” under the theme “Step Out, Experience Macau’s Communities”. A related poll was then conducted to collect public opinions for reference when launching similar tourism products in the future.
