Revised tourism tax in Malaysia is a welcoming relief

Published on : Wednesday, August 2, 2017

tourism tax in MalaysiaDue to the revised tourism tax plan that took effect from Aug 1, it is definitely a great relief for Malaysians, and less burdensome for foreigners. After much debate and talks with industry players and relevant stakeholders, the MalaysianTourism and Culture Ministry took the decision, as announced by its minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz.

 
Malaysians are expected to welcome this revised tax plan. The currency exchange factor and the prevailing poor health of the world economy have resulted in Malaysians exploring the hidden gems and loving their beautiful country even more.

 
It’s a step in the right direction in promoting and enhancing domestic tourism, now that the tourism tax has been called off.

 
Even for those on a shoestring budget staying at backpackers’ hotels and guest houses, it would hardly affect their travel budget much as the RM10 flat rate is comparable, on the average, with tourism tax in other countries. However, they always have the option of home stays or premises with fewer than five rooms, if RM10 is such a big deal.
