Good news for those living outside the capital city !

The Malaysian Association of Hotels or MAH Tourism Fair 2024 will be going North, to Penang this September and later to Ipoh too.

This is to offer holiday makers a chance to plan their domestic holidays with bargain room rates.

It will also offer local holiday makers a chance to book their rooms directly with the participating hotels where they can enjoy better rates and perks compared to online booking platforms.

The move is also in line with the Malaysian Association of Hotels (MAH) aims to promote domestic tourism along with Tourism Malaysia.

“Presently, such promotions are normally carried out in tourism destinations like Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Malacca, Sabah which are famous and busy tourist destinations.
