In order to facilitate visitors from China, Kedah will release tourism brochures in Mandarin to promote tourism products in the state. This was done in line with the increasing number of Chinese tourists to Malaysia.
According to Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir, the decision was taken in line with the increasing number of Chinese tourists to Malaysia. And to attract the tourist to visit Kedah, the initiative is taken.
He said “We will look at the places of focus and the places we want to promote to tourists. We have to do the menus in Mandarin too because sometimes they don't know how to eat Malaysian food.
“Previously, we were not promoting Kedah because we were not confident enough with the existing tourism products but now a better promotion process is underway to attract more tourists,”.
Earlier to introduce the state’s tourism and cultural products through a package provided in conjunction with the Visit Malaysia Year 2020, Mukhriz also launched the Kedah Tourism Directory.
He added, “This directory is one of our efforts to tell the world about all the tourist attractions in Kedah”.
