Malaysia tourism players planning to revive sector ahead of reopening

Published on : Tuesday, October 5, 2021

With the forthcoming reopening of state borders, tourism players in Malaysia are preparing for the sector to pick up soon. Tourism has been the hardest hit following closing of international borders due to the Covid-19 pandemic.


Malaysian Inbound Tourism Association president Uzaidi Udanis said that they are considering various tourism packages. “We have met a few hoteliers and operators, and are fine-tuning prices. We need to stimulate demand that’s sustainable,” Udanis said.


Udanis said that they do not want to take any chances and are designing attractive packages for domestic tourists.
Currently, there is a travel bubble project involving Langkawi, which started on September 16.


Tourism players said that other destinations need to be compliant as well.National Recovery Council chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said that interstate travel would be allowed in early October or the middle of the month at the latest.


“We are looking forward to this, especially with the peak season and school holidays in December.We are hoping to bank in on this to reduce losses but we will have to maintain our prices,” Yassin said.
