I simply love travel fairs and nothing makes me more thrilled then when Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents/MATTA fair comes around and I get to travel, even if just in my mind, and soak in some of the cultures, and sights in just a few minutes every time the fair happens…

The MATTA Fair this time, happening now, since 8th September to 10th September 2017 targets to attract 120,000 visitors and about RM220mil in sales and well, I think they are definitely on the right track, judging from the crowd thronging the seven halls…


MATTA is currently on its 44th edition, bringing great travel choices through value-for-money domestic and international packages, it was launched this morning by MATTA President, Datuk Tan Kok Liang and the Honourable Chief Minister of Sarawak, YB Datuk Amar Abang Haji Abdul Rahman Zohari at the Dewan Hussein Onn at PWTC..

The three-day event, which began yesterday, features some 1,314 booths in seven halls, occupying 29,000sq m exhibition space. Yup, another benefit you can derive from the MATTA Fair, and that is good exercise…


You can find 234 booths in two halls for domestic products and services along with state tourism organisations while the rest is allocated for the international tour and travel holiday packages including 13 national tourism organisations from Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Turkey and others…

Muslim travellers can also find a variety of umrah packages catered to the pilgrims’ schedule and budget at the Umrah Pavilion located at Hall 1M, housing 51 booths.

As I personally cannot get enough of the amazing deals, amazing prizes and giveaways, and of course all those cultural performance and glimpses of each countries uniqueness…



  1. I had a bad experience last MATTA Fair… 😦 And to me, if you want cheap flights and all-inclusive holidays; you may not find the cheapest option here so you should probably give it a miss. But there are some benefits to going to the fair, especially for those who are plan for tour group packages and buying guided tours. It’s probably the best place to be.
