The much awaited MATTA Fair Perak is back with a new round of travel deals and great bargains for travel lovers. 19 tour and travel agents are present, occupying 89 booths.
Although I wish to plan a trip somewhere, I really have no idea where to go. That was why I checked out all the offers when I dropped by at the venue yesterday afternoon. While there are many common tours, such as those to India, China, Japan and Korea, what really caught my eye were cruises and exotic tours.
You know I’ve wanted to go on a cruise for the longest time. At MATTA Fair Perak 2017 in Ipoh, the cheapest I found were RM699+ for 4D/3N to Penang – Port Klang – Phuket – Penang or RM899+ for 5D/4N to Penang – Port Klang – Langkawi – Phuket – Penang.
I couldn’t find the cruise that departs from Boustead Cruise Centre, though. Cruise ships began departing from BCC since 3rd September, 2017.
I wasn’t able to purchase because for these SuperStar Libra Star Cruises, we are expected to sail only in September and October, and I am not sure if I have any vacation time within these two months. Boohoo!
Of course, there are other cruises available but they are seriously out of my budget! 10D Norway Northern Light + Snow Hotel at RM12639, 8D Japan cruise at RM5529, and other offers on the Royal Caribbean at undisclosed prices. Aiyoyo amama!! How to afford liddat??
One of the agents is selling a 9D/7N Arctic Circle tour. Now, this is more like my kind of dream holiday. To be honest, this can only remain as a dream for the time being.
Closer to home, there are steep discounts from hotels and resorts. One-bedroom apartment at Marina Island Pangkor Resort & Hotel is going for RM178 nett per night only (normal price: RM318), inclusive of breakfast for two.
This price is only available for three days at MATTA Fair Perak. However, these vouchers are valid until 10th March, 2018. The best thing is that they are redeemable even during school holidays and weekends at no extra charge. Do take note that there will be a RM50 surcharge during public holidays.
Next to catch my attention were the five F&B promotions by Hotel Excelsior Ipoh.
– Imperial Set (Excelsior Palace Restaurant) @ RM35 nett
– Set Lunch (Excelsior Palace Restaurant) @ RM13.50 nett
– Set Lunch / Dinner (Dulang Coffee House) @ RM13.50 nett

Superior Twin @ RM120
Deluxe Twin @ RM130
Junior Suite (King) @ RM210
