Tourists should not worry about visiting Langkawi on vacation because it remains listed as a green zone, said  Dr. Hezri Adnan, the Chief Executive Officer of the Langkawi Development Authority (LADA).

He said that Langkawi is safe, even though 28 mukim in Kota Setar, Kedah, is currently enforced by the administrative for Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO).

He added that after the easing of Movement Control Order (MCO),  LADA along with industry players, introduced various measures to draw tourists to Langkawi, adding that the results were very encouraging as about 82,000 visitors visited the island in June.

“In July, the number increased to 189,000 and we saw a similar trend in August, but the enforcement of administrative EMCO, to some extent has affected the efforts probably because there are concerns among tourists,” he said this to reporters after officiating the Selfie Ria: Selfie Museum - the Dessert Series in the Oriental Village here.

Commenting on the museum, Hezri said that Langkawi Sdn Bhd, an operator at Langkawi SkyCab with a privately-owned company, developed it in partnership with Panorama.

Meanwhile, museum manager Noor Ain Mohamad Khalil said that apart from the starlight room, which is fitted with an infinity mirror, selfie enthusiasts will also have four other areas to explore, including the doughnut zone, cupcakes, ice cream, and neon light zone.

The museum operates daily from 9 am to 6 pm. Tickets are priced at RM22 for MyKad / MyKid holders (adults and children), and RM27 for foreigners. With every purchase, visitors will be given two types of complimentary desserts.
