Visit Malaysia Year 2014 Promises Exciting Events

Visit Malaysia Year 2014 Promises Exciting Events

Ask any Malaysian why tourists should visit their country and the answer will range from the mouth-watering food, diverse cultures, treasure of nature, enchanting islands and beaches, to great shopping adventure. Today, however, it is obvious that the country has never been more welcoming to international and domestic tourists alike than during the onset of 2014 – primed to be another significant year for the country’s tourism industry, as it will be the fourth time it is celebrating Visit Malaysia Year (VMY). Visit Malaysia 2014

The first VMY was held in 1990, followed by 1994 and the third in 2007, which was in conjunction with Malaysia’s 50 years of nationhood. This time around, from now leading up to 2014, the celebration gets even bigger, with over 200 exciting events and happenings that will certainly delight local and foreign tourists. In other words, VMY 2014 will be the nation’s biggest and grandest tourism celebration ever.

Expectation is high now as the spirit of celebration soars. There is no doubt about it: visitors will be attracted to the endless possibilities of events, happenings, wonders to see, do and enjoy, as well as sample the gracious hospitality of all. The latter is encapsulated in VMY 2014’s theme, ‘We are the Host’. This puts Malaysians in an empowering position: to be a perfect host to visitors and, hence, ensure the celebration remains close to their hearts.

Exciting Events

 VMY 2014 will see new creative and innovative tourism events such as ‘1Malaysia International Shoe Festival 2014’, ‘1Malaysia International Tourism Exchange 2014’, ‘1Malaysia Contemporary Art Tourism 2014’ and ‘1Malaysia International Tourism Night Floral Parade 2014’ – set to be more exciting, bigger and grander than ever.

Looking forward to Visit Malaysia Year 2014, it is obvious, then, that VMY 2014 will see more buzz with additional activities and festivities, and the adrenaline-pumping sight of throngs of people at tourist landmarks and sites. While all previous Visit Malaysia Years have proven to yield greater tourist arrivals, there is no doubt that this VMY 2014 has the potential to generate greater results. So much to look forward to, with more time to enjoy the offerings, as celebrations begin now! Malaysia promises that you will say: “So much to do, but so little time!”
