At the welcoming reception hosted by Cruise Tasik Putrajaya, participants were greeted by Dato’ Zainuddin Abd Wahab, Director General of Tourism Malaysia. Participants had firsthand experience exploring the Sky Mirror in Kuala Selangor and Kuala Lumpur.
At Resorts World Genting, participants were brought to the newest attraction of Genting SkyWorlds - an outdoor theme park in the highlands, followed by the Skytropolis Indoor Theme Park and experienced Awana Skyway, a 3.4-kilometre long gondola lift system which can transport 1,600 people per hour, as well as an overnight stay at Resort World Awana.
They also had the chance to meet up and get to know more about unique tourism product offerings in Selangor through a seminar organised by Tourism Selangor.
Dato’ Zainuddin Abd Wahab said, “We are very excited to welcome more international travellers to our fascinating country. Since the borders reopened, this is the first official FAM Trip from Vietnam to Malaysia.
