Published on : Monday, February 1, 2016

LangkawiWith the introduction of new attractions, Langkawi’s tourism revenue this year could hit RM6 billion, up from RM5.8 billion in 2015, says Langkawi Development Authority (LADA) Chief Executive Officer Khalid Ramli.

 
The projected revenue is based on tourists’ expenditure on accommodation and food, and does not take into account air fares, personal purchases and the like, he said. He was speaking to reporters after opening a Chocohauz outlet at Oriental Village in Langkawi Sunday.

 
LADA plans to upgrade Oriental Village to make it the nation’s best eco theme park, he added.

 
LADA also plans to jointly promote new attractions as well as the upgraded Sky Bridge, Inclinator and Sky Dome to domestic tourists with its subsidiaries as well as industry players.
