Visit Malaysia Year 2008

The success of the Visit Malaysia Year 2007 campaign has spurred interest among the state governments to embark on a similar campaign in their states for the year 2008. Among the states that will organise a Visit State Year 2008 are Terengganu, Kelantan and Kedah.

While the VMY 2007 campaign has been more event-driven, with over 200 national and international-level events and activities, the One Golden Celebration campaign will focus more on enticing tourists to come and visit our many wonderful destinations.

These promotions are further enhanced by three visit-State-year campaigns by Kedah, Kelantan and Terengganu – each with its own theme and campaign.

There are hosts of events to be promoted and included in holiday packages to woo both foreign and local tourists alike.

Don't miss out:
