Macau Makes Lonely Planet Top 10 Regions to Visit in 2015

Macau has been chosen as one of the top 10 regions for travel in 2015 in Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2015 annual publication. Macau Fireworks

 

Selecting what to include in the publication is a considered process involving Lonely Planet’s authors, editors and online community. The final selection and ranking is made by a panel of in-house experts who give each destination in the shortlist a score in line with criteria such as topicality, excitement and ‘x-factor’. It could be that there is something special going on that year, that there’s been a recent development or a buzz about the place.

In selecting Macau, Lonely Planet highlighted Macau’s Portuguese heritage, its unique Macanese fusion cuisine and broad range of attractions, from Buddhist temples to glitzy shows and from the world’s highest bungee jump to Michelin-starred dining. It also highlighted forthcoming new transport links and hotel openings, including Ritz Carlton and JW Marriott.

Sue Whitehead, UK & Ireland Representative, Macau Government Tourist Office, said: “We are thrilled that Macau has been selected for Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2015. With its fascinating east-west culture and world-class attractions and infrastructure, Macau should be on everyone’s wish list when considering a Far East trip. It’s a very exciting time too for Macau with a number of incredible hotels opening over the next three years – including the world’s first Karl Lagerfeld hotel – and the world’s longest sea bridge connecting Macau with Hong Kong due to open soon. This will make it even easier for travellers to visit.”

As well as the publication, there is a dedicated website featuring all of the Best in Travel 2015 destinations and additional advice on visiting them. Macau’s page can be found at: www.lonelyplanet.com/best-in-travel/regions/10-macau
