Malaysia and Indonesia will promote their Unesco World Heritage Sites – Malacca, Penang and Borobudur – as one tourism package.
Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen said the package, expected to be offered from August, would target heritage and culture enthusiasts in the region as well as senior citizens.
Borobudur is a ninth-century Mahayana Buddhist monument in Magelang, Central Java, located about 40km northwest of Yogjakarta.
“It is a very special package, three sites located in two countries. We will also discuss with airlines special promotions for all three destinations,” Dr Ng said after her first meeting with state tourism directors and state tourism action council (STAC) managing directors yesterday.
