STUDENTS at the Management and Science University’s (MSU) School of Hospitality and Creative Arts (SHCA) collaborated with Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) and Tourism Selangor to provide a virtual experience of Shah Alam’s interesting tourist attractions.

MSU president Prof Tan Sri Dr Mohd Shukri Abdul Yajid said the Heritage Walk: Virtual Edition 2021 was a smart partnership where students worked together with MBSA and Tourism Selangor to create cultural awareness and promote 17 iconic tourist sites in Shah Alam.

Prof Shukri launched the Heritage Walk: Virtual Edition 2021 in the presence of Shah Alam mayor Datuk Haris Kasim, MSU SHCA Dean Azizul Jamaludin and Tourism Selangor general manager Azrul Shah Mohamad at the university in Section 13, Shah Alam.

Prof Shukri said virtual tourism was not well received prior to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Now, we have people turning to virtual tourism as a result of lockdowns, quarantines and self-isolation.

“The combination of multimedia, such as narration, music, sound and images gives an immersive experience to virtual tourists who will come to appreciate the iconic sites of Shah Alam, ” he added.

He said among the sites in the virtual tour were Sultan Alam Shah Museum, Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Mosque, Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Building, Shah Alam Royal Mausoleum, Raja Tun Uda Public Library, Gallery Shah Alam, Shah Alam Royal Theatre, Shah Alam City Council and Shah Alam Botanical Gardens.

Prof Shukri said the virtual tourism programme would help people discover destinations in Shah Alam and equip students with marketing tools that could be applied once the pandemic was contained.
