Players in the tourism industry got together to offer some of the best travel deals to vacation seekers, the final opportunity to grab attractive travel deals before the Malaysian Goods and Services Tax (GST) is implemented this April 1st.
MATTA Fair Perak is just one of the travel fairs organised by the Malaysian Association of Tour & Travel Agents (MATTA) simultaneously in selected cities across the country. Over at the other side of town, also held over these three days is a similar nationwide exposition, known as MITM Travel Fair organised by the Malaysian Chinese Tourism Association.
While I had no plans to search for attractive vacation packages, I was glad to have visited this edition of MATTA Fair Perak as I was able to buy cheap travel insurance from City Life underwritten by QBE Insurance, for my upcoming trip to China at only RM5 per day.
Most of the exhibitors are regulars at these travel fairs. Impiana Hotel Ipoh is here with four exciting offers. They are:
1) Room promotion: Standard room for two at RM98 nett per night, excluding breakfast (normal rate: RM220 nett inclusive of breakfast for two)
2) Weekend Hi-Tea at RM20 nett each (normal price: RM32 nett) – valid until 31st May, 2015
3) BBQ buffet dinner at RM30 nett each (normal price: RM58 nett) – valid until 31st May, 2015
4) Ramadhan buffet promotion at RM50 nett each (normal price: RM80 nett) – valid during the month of Ramadhan 2015
Meanwhile, Kinta Riverfront Hotel’s Palong Coffee House is also running a promotion.
1) Buffet lunch at RM25 each (normal price: RM40)*
2) Buffet dinner at RM30 each (normal price: RM45)*
*buy four vouchers and receive one more for free
A new exhibitor that I spotted is Easturia Vacation Club, who came all the way from Kuching, Sarawak. The staff have just completed their presentation and ran out of brochures when I arrived but checking their website, from what I understood, this is a vacation where we pay a lump sum of $$ annually and then travel at a discounted rate during the year our membership is valid.
Shoppers are also eligible to partake in a lucky draw where interesting prizes are given away, such as a cruise vacation for two on Star Cruises, air tickets sponsored by Thai Airways International, YOU Wings and Firefly, personal electronics, home appliances, and more.
