MELBOURNE, Sept 23 (Bernama) -- Tourism Malaysia will take part in the first global relay on Sept 27 to be hosted on Instagram.
The Global Relay is organised by HelloWorld to help celebrate and acknowledge World Tourism Day.
This global relay will take followers on a visual journey and feature many of the wonders of the world over one day, Tourism Malaysia said in a statement.
For 12 hours, nominated travellers will guide the public through their country by taking a snap of their surroundings every hour and posting it on Instagram.

With its unbeatable scenery and vibrant culture, Malaysia is sure to be one of the highlight destinations!
Tourism Malaysia is collaborating with one of Australia's favorite Instagrammers, Annette Widitz.
