With more than two million followers on Weibo, Michael Wong’s tenure as Tourism Ambassador for Perak is for two years, beginning 1st August, 2019 until 31st July, 2021, targeting East Asia, mainly China, Hong Kong and Taiwan markets.
This is a timely appointment given that Ipoh-Guangzhou direct flights will begin in October.
This news was announced at a press conference at WEIL Hotel in Ipoh yesterday by State Tourism Committee chairman, YB Tan Kar Heng.
Boyish-looking Michael Wong certainly needs no introduction to fans of MandoPop, having been in the industry for over 25 years.

In line with his role as the state’s tourism ambassador, the four main tourism themes to be promoted by Michael are: Island, Adventure, Food, and Culture.
