The Melaka government has started to actively promote the state via a campaign called ‘Dream Now, Travel Later’ to revitalize its tourism sector which is badly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
State Tourism, Heritage and Culture Committee chairman Datuk Muhamad Jailani Khamis said the campaign which is held from June 1 to Dec 31, can be accessed through an online platform called ‘Melaka eXcess’ which can be downloaded from Google Play and App Store.
The campaign allowed tourism players in the state to offer discounted prices for entrance ticket to their destinations, products and services.
“To date, 80 tourism sector operators in Melaka have registered under the Melaka eXcess application and we are expecting many more to follow suit in the near future to promote their products or services,” said Datuk Jailani.
Some of the participating players in the campaign includes Melaka Wonderland, Crocodile Park, River Cruise, Zoo Melaka, Taming Sari Tower, Mamee Jonker House and Toy Museum as well as Melaka Sentral and Panorama Melaka.
He said tourists who bought tickets via the application are also eligible for lucky draw which offers various prizes such as a Perodua Alza and credit return totaling RM5 million.
