Value for money from two destinations
October 2008 1777

A “twin city” promotion was launched recently by the Singapore Tourism Board, Tourism Malaysia and Singapore Airlines in an effort to boost visitor numbers from the Middle East.
Many Middle Eastern travellers heading to south east Asia already combine their trips with a stopover in both Malaysia and Singapore, as both destinations offer family friendly tourism itineraries and strong cultural links. A five day, four night package that includes airfare and hotel accommodation in Singapore and either Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi or Penang starts at $678.
“Given the strong tourism links between Singapore and Malaysia, it is a natural fit for us to team up with our valued partners to launch a fall package that will provide Middle East travellers the opportunity to experience these two special countries,” said Jason Ong, area director for Middle East and Africa, Singapore Tourism Board.
The combined package enables visitors to capture the very best of Singapore and Malaysia – from city attractions and first rate shopping to tropical rainforests and pristine beaches.
 “Travellers from UAE have shown great interest in Malaysia as it offers both a wide range of attractions and value for money.  Malaysia and Singapore are neighbours and each country complements the other as top holiday destination.  Through our partnership with Singapore Tourism Board and Singapore Airlines, we are providing a range of city and island experiences, which combine to make a truly memorable trip,” said Tuan Razali Tuan Omar, director Tourism Malaysia.
“This package is an attractive option for those seeking to experience two amazing holiday destinations at a very affordable price,” said Lim Meow-Seng, general manager GCC, Singapore Airlines.
Singapore Airlines flies non-stop three times a week from Abu Dhabi and twice daily from Dubai to Singapore. From Singapore, Singapore Airlines and Silk Air offer 60 weekly services to Kuala Lumpur, 28 weekly services to Penang and 10 weekly services to Langkawi.
