A Message from Panorama Destination Malaysia: 

Greetings from Kuala Lumpur!  

Inbound numbers are on the rise, and Malaysia continues to develop a reputation as the emerging star in Southeast Asia. With an eclectic mix of cultures, food and weather to explore, we are rightly known as a country that is Truly Asia. What does this mean for your clients? Well, if they haven’t already been to Malaysia, then it’s time to make a booking! For returning visitors, there’s always something new to try too…  

This month, there’s some exciting festivals to put in the calendar. For Buddhists, Wesak Day is the biggest celebration of the year – Penang is a great place to see the festivities in all their colourful splendour. For travellers in East Malaysia, and especially on the beautiful island of Borneo, this month’s Harvest Festival in Sabah is the biggest celebration for the Kadazan-Duzun tribe. 

Panorama Destination Malaysia will be doing a little travelling of our own this month, as we head over to Arabian Travel Market (ATM) in Dubai from 6–9 May. We’ll be at Table 20, Booth AS7310 in Hall 7 of the Dubai World Trade Centre. To make an appointment, please contact us at, or feel fry to drop by during the event. We hope to see you there!  

ATM Dubai will give us a chance to showcase a few of Malaysia’s hottest destinations, including the island of Langkawi, where the Langkawi Sky Cab have just added a new attraction – The Eagle’s Nest Skywalk – which just opened recently. This location is always popular with our clients, and it just got even more appealing! 

If you would like to learn more about Malaysia, or have special requirements for clients’ travel itineraries, we’d be happy to discuss your requirements in more detail. Please feel free to get in touch, so we can help you deliver travel experiences in Malaysia that are unique, unforgettable and Truly Asia
