Macau emerges as increasingly popular overseas destination

More Brits could book flights to Macau after it was described as a "prime location for UK holiday-goers"

More Brits could book flights to Macau after it was described as a "prime location for UK holiday-goers" by a leading PR company.

According to Hume and Whitehead, the destination will become increasingly popular as more holidaymakers choose to fly to long-haul destinations.

A spokesperson from the company said the Chinese territory would prove a draw because of its Portuguese heritage and the fact that its centre is a UNESCO world heritage site.

"It’s got a nice, relaxed Mediterranean atmosphere, amazing food and really a whole range of things to do," the spokesperson said.

According to Macao’s government, 2,530,620 visitors arrived in the territory in November, which represented a year-on-year increase of three percent.

Almost 28 million travellers visited the region in the first 11 months of last year.

Despite Macau’s increasing popularity, data from flight search engine, Skyscanner has revealed that Malaga, Alicante and Tenerife were the most searched for overseas destinations on its site, for travel in 2009.

The Post Office recently said that more Brits could book flights further afield due to the fall in value of the pound.
