Tourism-MalaysiaA total of 134 international travel agents and media are visiting 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 (including Hong Kong), 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 included a chance to visit several tourist attractions in Selangor yesterday such as the Sultan Abdul Aziz Gallery Klang; Istana Alam Shah, the royal palace; i-City theme park; Selangor Islamic Arts Garden; Hi-5 Bread Town Museum; Banghuris Homestay; Mah Meri Cultural Village and Amverton Golf & Country Resort.

Today, they will visit the Putrajaya FLORIA (a flower and garden show) held at the same time as Magic of the Night 2013 after attending a tourism seminar and briefing on Visit Malaysia Year 2014 and learning about the country’s latest tourism developments from Tourism Malaysia and Selangor Tourism.

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 112 Indonesian participants including 14 media representatives are taking 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 came 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 are taking 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.
