Migrate to Malaysia“With the celebration of VMY next year, Tourism Malaysia will strive to attract more tourists from the Middle East to Malaysia. I’m confident that we will be able to achieve our target, as Malaysia is the top destination for Muslim travellers, explained Dato’ Haji Azizan Noordin, who is leading a Malaysian delegation. “In a survey released in January this year by Crescent rating, a Singapore-based travel consultancy, Malaysia secured the first spot as the world’s top Muslim-friendly holiday destination. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 as the best score, Malaysia obtained 8.3, among 50 nations surveyed,” added Dato’ Haji Azizan. In fact, Tourism Malaysia has just added another feather in its cap by garnering the “Best Global Tourism Advertising Campaign” award at the 4th Middle East Business Leaders Awards 2013 held on April 28 in Abu Dhabi. The event was jointly organised by the Federation of GCC Chambers and The Leaders International. Several important programmes have been scheduled, which include a media briefing and the launch of “Destination Malaysia” brochure. Last year tourist arrivals from West Asia to Malaysia were 370,535, which was an increase of 3.2 per cent compared to 358,994 in 2011. For the same period, tourist arrivals from Oman registered a hike of 13.2 per cent while tourist arrivals from UAE and Kuwait recorded a drop of 24.7 per cent and 0.3 per cent respectively.
