To further highlight its many attractions and ever-growing number of international hotels and shopping precincts, the Macau Government Tourist Office (MGTO) has launched the iPhone app carrying a fitting name - Experience Macau.
The new Smartphone application carries all the latest news and popular travel information.
Furthermore, it is equipped with the augmented reality (AR) and trip planner functions, enabling users to experience Macau ¡°freely and easily at anytime¡±.
The "Experience Macau" App comprises six items and functions namely Experience Macau, What's On, Plan Your Trip, Game, Map and AR View.
Additionally, a selection of attractions is provided with audio introduction and 360 degree panorama photos.
Among the functions, Experience Macau offers information about Macau UNESCO World Heritage listed sites, museums and galleries, shopping options, shows and entertainment, hotels and guest houses.
Visitors can use a function Plan Your Trip to design travel itineraries or follow suggested sightseeing routes.
They may also gain various attractions' background information instantly through the AR technology.
Users can check in at the designated attractions in the Game and immediately gain ¡°a virtual coin¡±. On the other hand, they can share their travel fun and footprints in Macau with friends around the world through Facebook.
The MGTO's App provides user platform and information in English, as well as traditional and simplified Chinese. Everyone is welcome to download the App for use.
Users can search "Experience Macau" on App Store or download the App for free from MGTO's web (www.macautourism.gov.mo).
In the near future, MGTO will also launch the App in Android version for more visitors to use.
