To ignite travel interest among Malaysians, the Tourism Board has worked with multiple travel agencies with attractive local destination packages. Keeping in mind of safety and costs, some of these travel packages are catching attention especially for their affordability, even activities that used to be beyond the reach of common folks, like golf.
