From time to time, I participate in local tourism events to meet and take photos with visitors and the public. For different occasions, I would dress up according to the theme of the event so that I can be more involved in the atmosphere! You are welcome to jot down my whereabouts, come and explore Macao with me!
“Mak Mak” Profile
Hello everyone! I'm “Mak Mak”! I am a lively and active girl with the mission to promote Macao, and I am actively promoting Macao in tourism activities both locally and abroad. Being the Macao Tourism Mascot, I definitely bring out the spirit of hospitality, guiding visitors to explore Macao and experience its diverse tourism attractions.
“Mak Mak” is a black-faced spoonbill, its design inspired by the Guia Lighthouse, based on the idea of being a explorer mascot, it is a reference to its migratory habits and travels through many places like a travel pathfinder. The hues of grey, red, yellow and blue on “Mak Mak” bring out a European aroma, not too extravagant. The mouth is smaller than in reality, which makes it look cuter.
A magical hat based on the design concept of Guia Lighthouse that stores all the information on Macao's festivals, tourism and weather changes.
“Mak Mak” really loves this badge, based on the concept of the window of Chapel of Our Lady of Guia, and she wears on her chest every day before going out.
The lantern existed before “Mak Mak” was born, and it is “Mak Mak’s” most beloved treasure.
In October 2017, MGTO organized the Design Contest for “Macao Tourism Mascot” in order to collect outstanding original entries from Macao, to create a good and friendly image of Macao through the mascot and enhancing the effectiveness of tourism promotion. Upon two rounds of judging, “Mak Mak” was selected among 111 entries and started its mission of “Macao Tourism Mascot” since April 2018.
