KUALA TERENGGANU, Nov 28 – The Malaysian Association of Hotels, Terengganu branch has set a five million tourist target for Visit Terengganu Year 2017. Its chairman Rosly Selemin said hotel operators were making every effort to ensure that the target could be achieved including promoting local traditional foods and attractive locations in Terengganu.
He said some hotel operators were offering room discounts of between 20% to 50%. He said there were fourteen hotels under MAH in Terengganu will offer accommodation packages at reasonable prices according to star rating. He told this to reporters after a dinner organised by MAH here last night.
“MAH was also promoting ‘Fascinating Terengganu’ in Johor Baru, Singapore and London, United Kingdom organised by the state government throughout this year. We support every programme organised by the state government and we also received cooperation from tourist agents to promote VTY 2017. For instance, in London, aside from introducing the ‘nasi dagang’, we also promoted interesting places in this state,” he said.
