Malaysia outbound travelMelaka in Malaysia is hopeful of a tourism boom during this Chinese New Year as it an increase of about 10 per cent daily in arrival of tourists from China.


Director at the Melaka Office of the Ministry of Tourism and Culture, Jeffri Munir said the increase in the arrival of the Chinese national tourists would have positive effect on the state’s hotel industry, as well as for tour guides, car rental and tour bus service.


Melaka recorded an average of 5,000 arrivals of tourists from China daily on normal days.


Meanwhile, Melaka branch Malaysia-China Chamber of Commerce president Lim Kok Ann said the popular spot for the Chinese national tourists in Melaka during Chinese New Year was Jonker Street.


“The Chinese New Year celebration in Melaka, especially at Jonker Walk, is merrier than in other states, with many red cloth and lanterns hanged to bring excitement to the celebration,’ he added.


Lim said Melaka was also a destination for tourists from China because of the existing Malaysia-China bilateral ties, especially in trade and tourism.


He said implementation of the e-visa and electronic travel registration and information (ENTRI) by the government since March last year also attracted more tourists from China to come to Malaysia.
