TAIPEI — Taiwanese made over 1 million visits to Macau in 2016, up nearly 9 percent from the previous year, according to statistics released by the Macao Government Tourism Office on Thursday.

As a result, Taiwanese are now the third-largest source of visitors to Macau, after mainland Chinese and Hong Kong residents.

According to the office, 1,074,525 Taiwanese visited Macau last year, up 8.8 percent, while the number staying over night also grew by double-digits, or nearly 100,000.

The office said the opening of the Parisian Macau and Wynn Palace resorts in 2016 helped to attract more visitors.    [FULL  STORY]
