Tourism Malaysia offers Durian tour packages

GEORGE CITY: Tourism Malaysia aims to sell 500 to 600 tourist packages at Durian Farm from July 1 to August 31, its managing director Datuk Zainuddin Abdul Wahab said.

He said tour packages are available in northern states and the ministry has targeted returns of over RM100,000 for tour operators participating in the scheme.

“Among the packages offered are the 2 Days 1 Night Package starting at RM290 per person and the 3 Days 2 Nights Package starting at RM388 per person with a minimum booking of four people per package.

“To boost sales, Tourism Malaysia is also offering a 10% discount to buyers,” he told reporters after chairing the 2022 Durian Tour Package campaign here today.

He said the program aims to boost domestic tourism marketing and promotion in addition to helping durian orchard operators and is also seen as capable of contributing to the local economy.

Zainuddin said that to make the campaign a success, Tourism Malaysia worked with five tour operators to develop packages that combine elements of ecotourism, agrotourism, archaeotourism and extreme adventure.

He said the five operators are Kurma Travel and Tours Sdn Bhd, Adventure360 Tours Sdn Bhd, Time Free Vacation Sdn Bhd, M.Maha-Izah Transport and Tours Sdn Bhd and Asia Gateway Tours.

Zainuddin said the ministry hopes more tour operators from other parts of the country will also offer such packages.Bernama
