Increase in demand for domestic tourism, says Tourism Malaysia


KOTA BARU: Domestic holidays are still in high demand, says Tourism Malaysia.

It acting deputy director-general (planning) Iskandar Mirza Mohd Yusof said Tourism Malaysia received positive feedback from several exhibitors at the “Jom Cuti-Cuti Malaysia” roadshows.

"After the government relaxed (the Covid-19-related regulations), we found that the demand for domestic tourism has picked up, especially during school holidays and public holidays.

"Today, we brought along exhibitors who offer attractive packages at reasonable prices which receive a very good response," he told reporters after launching the Jom Cuti-Cuti Malaysia roadshow at a shopping mall here.

The three-day roadshow which ends tomorrow aims to promote domestic tourism activities in line with the country's transition to the endemic phase.

A total of 24 industry players comprising product operators, travel agencies, hotels, theme parks and transport companies are participating in the roadshow to offer holiday packages, fares and entry tickets at attractive prices. - Bernama
