JAKARTA, Dec 31 — Tourism Malaysia in collaboration with the Association of the Indonesian Tour & Travel Agencies (ASITA) now offers special travel packages as low as Rp1 million (RM300) for Indonesians visiting Malaysia next year.
Tourism Malaysia director in Indonesia, Roslan Othman said the special package through the ‘Dream Now! Travel Later’ programme allows Indonesians who want to travel to Malaysia to buy the package much earlier and it can be used whenever they want during the year.
“Via this programme, they can buy the package first, and can use it when the Malaysian border reopens later, without having to worry about price changes,” he said at the launch of the ‘Dream Now! Travel Later’ programme, which was officiated by Malaysia’s Deputy chief of Mission in Indonesia, Adlan Mohd Shaffieq here, yesterday.
ASITA President N.Rusmiati said the packages offered (excluding flight tickets), were among the three-day two-night Millenial Package (priced at Rp1 million for each individual) to visit several interesting destinations in Malaysia with accommodation at four-star hotels .
The KL & Beyond four-day three-night package (at Rp1.75-Rp2.3 million) covers some of Malaysia’s leading tourist destinations with accommodation in four-star hotels.
Meanwhile, Tour Package 2 and 3 Countries (priced at Rp2.5 million – Rp3.3 million per person) are for a five-day four-night visit to several interesting tourist destinations in Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand.
“Malaysia is the destination of choice for Indonesians. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, more than 3 million Indonesian tourists visit Malaysia every year and it is hoped that the ‘Dream Now! “Travel Later’ programme can revive the tourism industry involving Malaysia and Indonesia,” he said.
