Further Restriction of Entertainment Outlet Operating Hours a Damper to Tourism

Published on : Friday, November 30, 2018

The Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (MATTA) is concerned with the report that Kuala Lumpur City Hall would ensure all entertainment outlets in the city to be closed by 1am, as stated by Minister of Federal Territories, YB Tuan Haji Khalid Abdul Samad.

 

MATTA President Datuk Tan Kok Liang says “The reasons given are frivolous, but the repercussions could be great. As it is, the night scene in Kuala Lumpur leaves much to be desired for tourists. City Hall ought to take into cognisance that the city is not just for local residents but also the huge number of domestic and foreign tourists.”

 

“Last year, Kuala Lumpur attracted 12.29 million international tourists, ahead of world-renowned cities such as Rome, Tokyo, Istanbul, Seoul, Miami, Barcelona and Shanghai. Curtailing operating hours of entertainment outlets would certainly dampen visitors’ experience and unlikely to return for more.”
