Since marking the end of travelling restrictions into Malaysia on 1 April 2022, tourism stakeholders from Malaysia rushed to take part in the inaugural Malaysia Digital Travel Fair (MDTF) in anticipation of the travel surge for the upcoming Singapore’s mid-year school vacation.
MDTF is an online travel fair portal, in partnership with Tourism Malaysia Singapore Office, to showcase tourism products and services to promote Malaysia as a top-of-mind destination to Singapore holiday makers from 22nd to 28th April 2022. With over 70 exhibitors offering a wide range of holiday packages to Malaysia, Singapore consumers are spoilt for choice.
“This online portal elevates tourism to Malaysia. This will benefit the Malaysian tourism industry stakeholders with an aim to create business opportunities for travel industry partners, transport operators, and tour agents in Singapore,” said His Excellency Dato’ Dr. Azfar. Mohamad Mustafar, High Commissioner of Malaysia to Singapore, who graced the digital launch.
Among the holiday packages available for the Singaporean market include Genting SkyWorlds + Skytropolis Theme Park twin tickets at SGD$62 (RM186), Berjaya Langkawi Resort from SGD$125 (RM375), and Perkasa Hotel Tenom from SGD$40 (RM120).
Attendees also stand a chance to participate in a lucky draw to win attractive prizes including an IBN Highlands City Condo worth RM1.5 million.
Since the reopening of its international borders, Singapore has been the main contributor for arrivals and revenue for tourism to Malaysia. After more than two years of hiatus, Tourism Malaysia Singapore office has commenced promotional programmes to excite Singapore travellers and showcase what Malaysia has to offer.
