Ray of hope shines through for domestic tourism. [Newspaper] (2021)


KUALA LUMPUR: The resumption of interstate travel, starting Monday, will encourage more family tours to domestic tourist destinations. Lauding the move, Malaysia Tourism Council president Uzaidi Udanis said tourism players had pinned high hopes on unrestricted interstate travel for the pandemic-battered industry to recover. "Over the last 20 months, tourism players struggled to pull through. Our only relief was during the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) period between October and December last year but that was short-lived when the government reinstated the MCO January this year. "We have been preparing to reset the domestic tourism market earlier. For instance, we have refocused our strategy to cater for smaller family tours rather than large group tours as people are still cautious about the virus transmission.
