She said last year, Singapore ranked as the top source of tourist-generating markets, contributing significantly to 8.3 million arrivals.

The forthcoming Visit Malaysia Year 2026 has set a target of 35.6 million foreign tourist arrivals, with a target receipt of RM147.1 billion, she added.

The Malaysia Travel Escapade 2024 also offered a glimpse into Malaysia's vibrant culture with a showcase of traditional handicrafts and products including Sarawak’s black pepper, gula apong and coconut sugar, as well as rejuvenating spa services, courtesy of the Association of Malaysian Spas (AMSPA).

Spa Manja manager Roselyn said among the offer at the fair include a two-hour package worth S$48 for customers of the spa that is located in Johor Bahru.

"Our customers are 50-50 between locals and Singaporeans. Spa is one of the main attractions for Singaporeans when they visit Malaysia. This fair allows us to promote our products and the Malaysian spa experience to Singaporeans and help to increase tourism in Malaysia,” she said.
