Oh yaaay…. did you know Malaysia has once again made headlines by winning the much-coveted World Travel Awards in various categories at the recent World Travel Awards Asia & Australasia Gala Ceremony 2016 in Vietnam? Awesome right…
For the second consecutive year, both Tourism Malaysia and Malaysia itself were awarded Asia’s Leading Tourist Board and Asia’s Leading Destination respectively during the red carpet event at the InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort.
The Director General of Tourism Malaysia Datuk Seri Mirza Mohammad Taiyab said that Tourism Malaysia was truly honoured to receive the award for the second time in a row.
“We are also proud that Malaysia is also awarded Asia’s Leading Destination. The awards are a reflection of our dedication towards excellence in the hospitality industry,” he added.
At the same event, AirAsia won both awards in the Asia’s Leading Low-Cost Airline and Asia’s Leading Inflight Service categories. The latter category was AirAsia’s first win, which saw the airline beating a field of full-service carriers.
