Furthermore, 21 new tourism initiatives will be implemented in 2014, including golf tourism, “Love Tour, Love Malaysia” silver-haired tour packages, fishing elite Malaysia tournament tour packages, “Ma Shang Liu Lian” durian tour packages and “fly and ride” packages.

In the Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions (MICE) segment, about 2,000 to 3,000 Chinese visitors are expected in 2014.

Malaysia is currently ranked among the top three travel destination in ASEAN for Chinese tourists, especially since China’s currency, the yuan, has strengthened and reduced the cost of travel for Chinese tourists.
