PUTRAJAYA: Tourism Malaysia has launched 104 cycling packages nationwide under the banner of Cuti-Cuti 1Malaysia (CC1M).
The packages pair cycling activities with different attractions such as sightseeing, food hunts or homestays at various locations. The launch of the cycling packages has come ahead of the Visit Malaysia Year 2014 (VMY2014), which will start in less than two weeks.
“We have all cycled at some point in our lives, such as in our childhood, so what we are asking is for people to recapture those moments. “And there is no better place to be on a (weekend) than on a bicycle,” Tourism Malaysia director-general Datuk Mirza Mohammad Taiyab said after the CC1M Putrajaya Bike Ride 2013 flag-off, here yesterday.
Mirza said the CC1M cycling packages would be valid from now until the end of next year to attract both locals and international tourists. A total of 4,940 cycling packages worth RM817,070 have been sold throughout the country between January to November this year.
Brochures for the CC1M cycling packages are available at all tourist information centres, the Malaysia Tourism Centre (MaTiC) and Tourism Malaysia state offices.
Malaysia has targeted to receive an estimated 28 million tourists and RM76bil in tourism revenue during the VMY2014. More information may be obtained from www.tourismmalaysia.gov.my.
