According to Tan Sri Dr. Ong, Tourism Malaysia was targeting RM1 million in sales of domestic tour packages which would be offered to the 15,000 visitors expected at the fair.
“Proper and early holiday planning will save you money on flights and hotels. A tourism fair like this will help the public to plan their holiday with family and friends throughout 2016 at a much lower cost,” stated Tan Sri Dr. Ong.
He suggested that Malaysians travel within their own country in light of the high foreign currency exchange rates.
“Apart from the tourism fair, Tourism Malaysia will also hold a Cuti-Cuti 1Malaysia Dekat Je Travel Mart sessionon 25 February 2016 at the Mutiara Hotel, Johor Bahru. The business to business (B2B) programme will be held between participants from the whole country and tourism operators from Johor and Singapore,” he added.
