Cuti-Cuti Malaysia Mini Travel Fair: Let’s Support Local Tourism!
This year, we are seeing a marked increase in local tourism due to the fact that overseas travel is prohibited under the RMCO until the end of the year. We interviewed En Mohamed Sallauddin Mohamed Shah, General Manager of Aviation Marketing and Development for Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB), to get his opinion on how local tourism will be like moving forward.
With an increased focus on local tourism due to the RMCO, local companies and organisations have started offering many enticing deals. At the second KLIA Crazy Sale & Cuti-Cuti Malaysia Mini Travel Fair which is being held in KLIA from 25 September to 30 September 2020, various vendors are providing exclusive offers, some of which we have compiled below:
Flywind Holidays Sdn Bhd
Some of the packages we would like to highlight from Flywind Holidays are their Tioman and Redang packages: at RM319 per person for a 3D2N stay inclusive of ferry transfers, meals, and snorkelling trips, this is a steal for marine lovers!
In addition to the above, they are also featuring the following promos:
- Full board holiday package to Pulau Perhentian starting from RM285
- Sunway Lagoon promotion:
- RM109 (child)
- RM132 (adult)
- Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson room package starting from RM550
Farm in the City
We’ve covered Farm in the City before in our article on March School Holiday Activities. This is a popular place for both children and adults alike, as it is designed to be quite literally a farm in the city, replete with animals and even a fruit orchard, although they do have quite a number of exotic animals that you will not typically find in a local farm, such as alpacas and marmosets. Animal lovers of all ages should visit this place at least once to have a chance to get up close to the animals in the farm.
Malindo Air is now offering cheap flights to Langkawi, Penang, Kuching, Kota Kinabalu, Singapore and Jakarta from KLIA. These tickets can be purchased now and are valid until 28 April 2021 should you choose to fly at a later date. The booking period, however, is only until 5 October 2020, so you need to hurry and plan ahead. Not only that, but in addition to the cheap tickets, they also have the following deals:
- Ticket sales—FREE Shopping Vouchers* with flight purchase. *Limited availability per day
- Merchandise Sales & Exclusive Merchandise Bundles!
- Malindo Notebook + Comfy Kit @ RM40 2
- Malindo Mug + Cap + Pen @ RM40
GIT Tours & Travels
GIT Tours & Travels is running multiple promotional packages for hotel stays in several states, so if you are planning to bring your family to vacation over in any of these states, you might want to visit their booth for more info on their packages for the following places: Port Dickson, Sepang, Penang, Johor, Pangkor, Ipoh, and Terengganu.
Gopeng Glamping Park
“Glamping” is a new term coined by joining the words “glamorous” and “camping” together. As it suggests, glamping is a bit more upscale than bare basic camping, but not at the level of staying at a hotel or resort. It’s like the middle ground between the two. Gopeng Glamping Park is located near Kampung Chulek in Gopeng, Perak. They provide many free amenities at their glamping grounds, including free WiFi for urbanites who cannot live without an internet connection, and board games both contemporary and traditional. Due to their proximity to the hills, river, caves and forest, they have many interesting outdoor activities available for the adventurous. Now they even have a free stay promo where you only pay for a full 24-hour itinerary of activities including waterfall abseiling, sunset hiking and whitewater rafting, and you get to stay the night for free!
Avenue Garden Hotel
Avenue Garden Hotel in Bangi, Selangor, is a 4-star hotel with a theme park of their own called Bangi Wonderland. The Bangi Avenue Convention Centre (BACC) has several packages for events, from half day or full day meetings to large wedding dinners which can accommodate up to 3,500 guests in a theatre style. They are now having a Theme Park Ticket + Hotel promo for families from two (RM220) to six persons, and for families of four (RM430) or six (RM620), their package also includes free set dinners at Iris Cafe in the hotel.
The theme park in Shah Alam called i-City contains a wide variety of attractions, including an interactive wax museum and an indoor -8°C winter wonderland. Right now during the KLIA Crazy Sales promo period, they are selling their All Day Unlimited Entry (ADUE) Annual Pass and 4 TO GO All Day Happyness Pass (ADHP) at a discounted rate. All Day passes are also available for individual attractions if you don’t feel like you’re up for getting wet or if you only have limited time.
GR Travel & Tours
In addition to regular travel packages, GR Travel & Tours is also promoting health and wellness tourism, where the focus is on health and wellbeing rather than cultural enrichment or entertainment, which is why activities such as body massage and unlimited gym are features of these special packages. For couples who are more conventional, they also feature two honeymoon packages, especially a 3D2N Langkawi Honeymoon package including staying at a 4-star hotel for just RM599.
Hygiene & Safety
To ensure the safety of the public at the terminals, many safety measures are already set up at both the airport and hotel. All public areas at the airport are sanitised once every three hours, and guests are required to go through thermal scanning, adhere to physical distancing, check in via the MySejahtera contact tracing app, and wear face masks at all times. Passenger heavy areas such as the washrooms and escalators are sanitised with the latest technology using UV rays. Lastly, only 250 visitors at a time shall be allowed into the event area to ensure there is adequate room for physical distancing.
So there you have it, these are some of the offers for local tourism that will be available at the second round of the KLIA Crazy Sale & Cuti-Cuti Malaysia Mini Travel Fair at KLIA.
