SHAH ALAM, April 6 — A total of 10,000 travel vouchers for the ‘Nak Bercuti? Pusing Selangor Dulu!’ campaign has been fully redeemed.
Tourism Selangor general manager Azrul Shah Mohamad said the distribution of the vouchers, worth RM200 each, received an overwhelming response since it was introduced on January 8.
“Even though the recovery of the (tourism) sector is only open towards domestic visitors but it does help out the tour operators in generating an income.
“Those who had redeemed the vouchers, however, are reminded to continue complying with the standard operating procedure (SOP) when visiting the places of attraction,” he told SelangorKini.
On July 13 last year, the state government through its Selangor Cares economic stimulus package had taken the initiative to introduce the RM2 million tourism voucher subsidy in efforts to resuscitate the tourism industry.
The vouchers were redeemable via the Touch ‘n Go e-Wallet and Lazada platforms and can be used at participating hotels, homestays and theme parks.
Meanwhile, Azrul said the state agency is actively promoting its tourism campaign on its social media platforms.
“We also showcase various interesting destinations in the state, which is accessible via the Tourism Selangor YouTube channel.
“The videos allow the people, especially those residing outside of Selangor, to catch a glimpse of the various attractions in the state,” he added.
