Support our local tourism industry and discover some unique world-class sights.

We are fast approaching the middle of 2020. You have probably been saving for an amazing family trip overseas or a getaway with friends, or even planning your first solo trip abroad, which you planned to do sometime this year. Holidays are a great way to see new places (or refresh your memories of familiar ones) and connect with other people. No one could have foreseen 6 months ago that a pandemic would end up defining 2020 as a year in our lives. As you would have noticed, one of the biggest impacts COVID-19 has had on our economies and societies is the ban or restriction of travel, by land, sky or sea.

This has impacted the lives of many individuals, whose life’s work was to ensure that our holidays are fuss-free, exciting and memorable. Local airline companies like Malaysia Airlines and Air Asia have had to halt their services, only recently resuming operations for essential travel. Out local hotels are estimated to have made billions in losses following the Movement Control Order (MCO) implementation in March. Nearly half of the tours and travel company industry have closed down, while the remainder is struggling to keep afloat. The travel industry is a crucial component to a country’s economy, being the third-biggest contributor to Malaysia’s Gross Domestic Product, and their struggles are our collective loss as a people and nation.

The MCO was a necessary measure that has proven fruitful in efforts to curb the spread of the pandemic. Now, while international travel has been discouraged for the rest of 2020, and perhaps the early part of 2021, there is hope that the inter-region travel will return to normal by the third quarter of the year. Once that happens, what better way to show support for our local communities than going on your own Cuti-Cuti Malaysia!

In the last few years, there has been a rise in interest among locals to travel to the wonderful locations Malaysia has to offer the intrepid traveller. So much so, the MATTA Fair, well-known for their incredible deals on flights and tour packages for international holidays, were planning to have their inaugural Cuti-Cuti Malaysia @ MATTA Fair in April 2020 to promote domestic travelling (this event has since been postponed indefinitely). For years, our countries has seen millions of international travellers on our shores, enjoying what our country offers in cultural diversity and natural beauty. While a vibrant culture is our normal, many Malaysians miss out on the biodiversity and rich ecological history that is abundantly present outside our bustling cities.

There are many gems across our peninsula and East Malaysia that are perfect for the first time explorer and return traveller. One of the most popular ones is Langkawi, and it is well-deserving of its prominence. Many a child would have selected it as the subject of their English essay on a memorable trip with their family. Historically home to seafarers, the archipelago made up of 99 individual islands boasts lush rainforests and swamp regions, with flora and fauna as extensive as can be imagined.

The islands’ greenery and abundance of life is matched is complemented by the areas where the sand meets the sea. Langkawi’s beaches are some of the best Malaysia, and even the world has to offer. One can choose to have a lazy beach day, or entertain yourself by participating in a variety of water sports offered by the various providers on your beach of choice. Langkawi has also become a well-frequented diving destination. Its waters are stocked with fantastic aquatic life and rock and coral formations which provide an amazing colour contrast against the blue waters.

Sounds tempting, doesn’t it? We all need a change of scenery after being cooped up at home for so long. Consider a Fun Dive Tour to bring out the adventurous spirit in you. Langkawi Adventures offers you the opportunity to explore the deep sea surrounding Pulau Payar Marine Park. A one-hour boat ride away from shore, the underwater “coral garden” you will explore is home to many types of sea creatures. You may even spot a docile young black-tip shark or two! With an all-in price of MYR 380 per person (including pickup service), you are ensured six hours of discovery and awe in the waters of Langkawi island. It’s a unique experience to be enjoyed, whether on your own or with family and friends.

If you are looking to plan a trip post-MCO, look no further than the wonders that Malaysia offers. By supporting local tourism, you are supporting the conservation of our natural world. This preserves places like Langkawi so that it can be a wonder for future generations to experience too.
