Its chief executive officer, Nasaruddin Abdul Muttalib said with the arrival of this number of tourists, Langkawi was expected to receive about RM165 million from the money spent by these tourists.
He said, “Based on a study conducted by LADA and USM (Universiti Sains Malaysia), the average per day expenditure of a local tourist on the island is around RM412. The expenditure includes on accommodation, food, transportation and entrance tickets to the tourism centres in Langkawi.”
Nasaruddin also said that on the first day of Langkawi’s reopening to tourists, there would be five flights from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport and Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport in Subang, Selangor. Article in malaymail.com
Hopefully all goes well, then we are going to have more destinations soon
Remember yeah, after Phuket’s sandbox experiment went well (there were still infection cases yeah), now Bangkok will be the next to be reopened to vaccinated tourists too. Bangkok Reopening for Tourists in October 2021.
Thus Travel Bubble Langkawi will be the catalyst or the stop for all future potential destinations. Please do it very well and to all the travellers, if you cannot follow SOPs, please just stay home. Looking forward to more good news very soon after this full weekend in Langkawi. 16th September is just a beginning.
