At the fair, you will also be able to catch Macao’s official tourism mascot, ‘Mak Mak’! This adorable black-faced spoonbill mascot is inspired by the Guia Lighthouse and is coloured with hues of red, yellow, and blue to bring out Macao’s European influence. ‘Mak Mak’ is a pathfinder that guides travellers to explore Macao’s culturally unique blend of Chinese and European influences. During its journey, ‘Mak Mak’ also searches for its own meaningful and valuable experiences to be brought back to its most beloved home – Macao.

That’s not all! In conjunction with the 65th Macau Grand Prix happening from 15 to 18 November 2018, the MGTO has also prepared a Grand Prix simulator at the roadshow for those who love some fast and furious action! Feel free to channel your inner professional racer as you fasten yourself to the realistic racing seat and step away at the pedal to ignite your racing passion!

Besides that, Macao is also a food paradise famous for its delectable traditional almond cookies, Portuguese tarts, and many more! To entice you with the sweet and authentic flavours of Macao, the MGTO has prepared a food-tasting activity on-site so that you will be able to taste and enjoy the must-try Macao snacks right here in Malaysia! Don’t forget to also head over to the photo booths featuring various backdrops of the many exciting Macao festivals to take photos and you’ll even have the chance to bring home exquisite Macao souvenirs!

The excitement doesn’t stop there! On 4 August, at 12pm, famous host Natalie will be having a sharing session at the MITM Travel Fair Main Stage for the exclusive showing of her ‘More Than Fun’ travelogue series done in collaboration with the MGTO and ABC Holiday!
