Tourism Malaysia has gone all out to promote the country as a mecca for thrill-seekers, staging a Malaysia Adventure Dinner Seminar in Sydney last night.
More than 60 Aussie agents that sell Malaysia held a mini travel mart at Coach Restaurant in Martin Place and were updated on new products and soft adventures that the country now offers.
“Helicopter tours are really new that allow visitors to see our parks and gardens and rainforests from the air,” said Hafizmen Daud from Tourism Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur.
“All of our pilots have been trained to be tourist friendly with expert commentary as they fly you over the Twin Towers in KL, or villages, mosques, Chinese temples, the beaches of Langkoui, the 99 islands in the Andaman Sea or State National Parks,” added Daud.
Helicopter tours cost from $200pp for 30mins for up to four passengers.
