Tourism-MalaysiaA total of 109 international travel agents and media are scheduled to visit Malaysia to witness Magic of the Night 2013, a Ministry of Tourism and Culture event held from 22 to 30 June.

These Tourism Malaysia Mega Familiarisation Programme participants from 13 countries, namely Bangladesh, Brunei, China, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Turkey are here to report and publicise the event and, in the case of travel agents, to help promote Malaysian holiday packages to their clients.

The group’s visit to Malaysia includes a chance to visit the Banghuris Homestay in Selangor and Putrajaya FLORIA (a flower and garden show) held at the same time as Magic of the Night 2013. They will also attend a tourism seminar and briefing on Visit Malaysia Year 2014 and learn about the country’s latest tourism developments from Tourism Malaysia, Selangor Tourism and FRIM.

Further efforts by Tourism Malaysia to promote Magic of the Night 2013 and Putrajaya FLORIA have resulted in the sale of Cycling Flora Parade @Putrajaya 2013 packages in Indonesia. A total of 110 participants including 12 media representatives will take part in this programme which brings them to Malaysia from 20 until 23 June for an event-packed holiday.

The package is a collaboration by Tourism Malaysia Jakarta, Putrajaya Corporation, Garuda Airlines Indonesia, Habibie Tours and UNITED Bike Indonesia in an effort to attract Indonesians to take part in a cycling holiday in Malaysia and also to promote Putrajaya as one of the main holiday destinations to the Indonesian market. This comes in light of aggressive promotional efforts by Tourism Malaysia to create awareness for Visit Malaysia Year 2014 in Indonesia.

The cycling package includes airfare, hotel accommodation, breakfast, lunch, dinner and sightseeing, as well as a free UNITED Bike bicycle for each buyer. The participants will take part in a 20-25 kilometre cycling route around Putrajaya, taking them through some of the fascinating sights of the administrative capital including the bridges, parks and buildings.
