PETALING JAYA: Malaysia was crowned as this year's best family tourist destination at the Lonely Planet Magazine India Travel Awards 2014 in Mumbai.
Director of Tourism Malaysia (India) Manoharan Periasamy said the award was a recognition of Malaysia’s achievements in promoting the country as a leading ASEAN family destination.
“The rapid development of various theme parks and children entertainment centres in Malaysia such as Legoland, Puteri Harbour Family Theme Park, Kidzania, and i-City, to name a few, is a testament to the fact,” he said in a press statement.
Potential candidates were chosen by readers after nominees were shortlisted by an expert panel.
Lonely Planet is perhaps the world's most well-known travel guidebook, with over 100 million copies of various countries sold worldwide.
