Travel and Tourism - Malaysia - August 2017

“Malaysia has much to offer as a tourist destination with its unique diversity of culture and ethnicity that incorporates a wide range of Malay, Chinese, Indian and European colonial influences visible throughout its cities, languages, gastronomy and landscapes. Following a difficult year in 2015 after the two Malaysian Airlines disasters in 2014, tourism arrivals have once more bounced back and the expectation is strong that growth will prevail to 2020.”
- Jessica Kelly, Senior Tourism Analyst
