Tourism Malaysia Leads Delegation To Boost Lao Arrivals

VIENTIANE, 16 Sept 2015: Tourism Malaysia’s Deputy Director General (International Promotion) Dato’ Haji Azizan Noordin is leading a Malaysian delegation to Laos to promote the country’s tourism attractions and the Malaysia Year of Festivals’ (MyFest) events, in conjunction with Malaysia Day. 

The visit marks Tourism Malaysia’s effort to boost tourist arrivals from Laos and update members of the travel trade on new attractions in Malaysia and the events that can be promoted to Lao travellers for the remaining months of MyFest 2015.

Dato’ Azizan is accompanied by four industry players from Malaysia who participated in a travel mart at Don Chan Palace Hotel today. They will also participate in the Malaysia Travel Fair: Food & Cultural Festival, which will be held at the National Cultural Hall and Don Chan Palace Hotel from 17 to 20 September 2015. A total of 15 travel agents from Laos, who are selling Malaysia packages, are also expected to join the travel fair.

Dato’ Azizan will officially open the travel fair at the National Cultural Hall on 17 September. Among the dignitaries who are expected to grace the event are the Ambassador of Malaysia to the Lao PDR Dato' Than Tai Hing and the Vice Ministers of Information, Culture and Tourism of Laos Savankhone Razmounty and Chaleune Warintharasak, along with senior government officials, media, and travel agents. 

According to Dato’ Azizan, this event provides an excellent platform for Malaysia’s tourism industry players to meet, network, and strengthen ties with their Lao counterparts. Besides that, it is also a good opportunity for Tourism Malaysia officials and members of the Malaysian travel industry to understand the current market trend and new developments in the Laos outbound travel market.

It is hope that this event will not only promote Malaysia’s tourism potentials to Lao people but also inspire more travel agents from Laos to create more exciting and attractive packages for Lao tourists to visit Malaysia.

Tourism Malaysia is partnering with AirAsia in this promotional effort as it is the only airline that provides flights to Vientiane from Kuala Lumpur three times per week.
