Irish Agents Enjoy Kuala Lumpur

Irish Agents Enjoy Kuala Lumpur

The imposing Petronas Towers

Irish travel agents are part of an international mega agents fam to Malaysia that sees them visit the capital, Kuala Lumpur, then on to Terengganu before heading to Langkawi. Seen here are Ian Walsh from Travel Counsellors with Lorraine Dunne from Sunway during a visit to the school for hard knocks at the Royal Selangor visitor centre in Kuala Lumpur. Looks like every agent should do a course at this school!

They also witnessed the colourful Colours of 1Malaysia 2013 ceremonies in Kuala Lumpur’s Independence Square, which was attended by His Majesty the King Yang DiPertuan Agong. The international agents were personally thanked  for their attendance by the new Malaysian Minister of Tourism,YB Dato Seri Mohamed Nazri Bin Tan Sri Abdul Aziz. They were then treated to a very impressive and spectacular performance by the more than 6,500 participants. The event culminated with a spectacular fireworks display that lit up the night sky in the nation’s capital.
