LANGKAWI, Feb 16 (Bernama) -- Tourism Malaysia is intensifying its efforts to promote tourism products in Kedah to tourists in Langkawi.
Kedah Tourism Malaysia director Roslan Othman said two tourism packages - Alor Setar City Tour and Royal Heritage Trail - had also been made available to lure tourists in Langkawi to Kedah.
"A total of 20,000 brochures on the packages had been distributed for this purpose and they were placed at three tourist information centres in Padang Matsirat International Airport, Kuah town and Kuah jetty," he told Bernama, on Wednesday.
He said the Royal Heritage Trail, which showcases the history of Kedah Sultanate, would bring tourists to several attractive destinations in the state like the Yellow Palace, Merdeka House, Tunku Sultan Gallery, Golden Jubilee Park, Zahir Mosque, Royal Museum and Anak Bukit Palace.
The Alor Setar City Tour would comprise a visit to Alor Setar Tower, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad's House, Kedah Museum, Padi Museum, Sultan Abdul Hamid College (oldest college in Kedah), Keriang Mountain and Tanjung Chali.
Roslan said many were still unaware of the attractive tourism products available in Kedah, including Alor Setar.
Hence, he said the promotion was hoped to increase the number of tourist arrivals in the state.
"So far, the promotion in Langkawi has received encouraging response from the tourists," he added.
AL :- Good effort to bring tourist to Kedah. But the Kedah government need to ensure all the places suggested need to be in tip-top condition.
