Tourism Malaysia wooing more travellers from Singapore

TOURISM Malaysia is intensifying efforts through joint promotions and tactical campaigns to woo more travellers from Singapore following a drop in the arrivals in the first quarter of 2015.

“We need to carry out various initiatives, including through joint promotions and tactical campaigns, to drive growth from Singapore for the remaining months of the year,” Tourism and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz told reporters here yesterday.

Singapore’s tourist arrivals into Malaysia last year was 13.9 million, a growth of 5.7 per cent, but the figures for first three months of 2015 dropped 8.6 per cent.

Speaking at a luncheon with Singapore trade and media representatives here, Mohammed Nazri outlined Tourism Malaysia’s efforts to boost arrivals from Singapore, including forging ties at the Travel Malaysia Fair 2015. He said Tourism Malaysia would collaborate with Malindo Air, hold a Durian Fiesta initiative, develop special diving packages, and promote Malaysia as a music and entertainment hub.

On the latest offering from Malaysia, he said KTM Bhd would introduce a daily train shuttle service between JB Sentral (Johor Baharu) and Woodlands (Singapore).

“The train service, which operates seven times a day from Singapore to Malaysia, offers Singaporean tourists more travel options to Malaysia.

“This service provides great convenience to Singaporean tourists, and complements the existing connectivity.”
