Tourism Malaysia is excited to announce that it will be taking part in the first global relay to be hosted on Instagram. The Global Relay has been organised by HelloWorld to help celebrate and acknowledge, World Tourism Day.
On September 27, 2015 sixty countries will take part in HelloWorld’s InstaRelay and Malaysia is thrilled to be involved and showcase its diverse offering as a holiday destination.
This global relay will take followers on a visual journey and feature many of the wonders of the world over one day. For 12 hours, nominated travellers will guide us through their country by taking a snap of their surroundings every hour and posting it to Instagram. The relay will begin in Samoa, the Western most point of the planet at sunrise, and finish at sunset twenty-four hours later in the Cook Islands, with another seventy-five destinations in between. With its unbeatable scenery and vibrant culture, Malaysia is sure be one of the highlight destinations!
