The Langkawi Naturally Magikal Kedah festival which will be officially launched on December 19 is targetted to attract 500,000 local and international tourists to the jewel island Malaysia, said Kedah state Menteri Besar (Chief Minister) Mukhriz Tun Mahathir.
He said in conjunction with Visit Malaysia Year (VMY) 2014, the 18-day festival will be officially launched in Langkawi to provide activities for tourists who visited the island, especially during that time of year.
“There will be plenty of entertainment and spectacular events such as laser and firework displays, dancing fountains, concerts and many more,” he told reporters at the launch of Langkawi Naturally Magikal, Kedah, in Kuala Lumpur on November 16.
The festival was a result of a strategic alliance between the Ministry of Tourism and Culture, the Kedah State Government, Langkawi Development Authority (LADA) and Naturally Magical Sdn Bhd.
He said the festival was in response to feedback from tourists on the lack of activities during their visit and to further diversify the events held there.
“This festival will contribute to the growth of the tourism sector in Langkawi and turn it into a popular and unique island destination for tourists,”
