The Travel Malaysia Fair is here again.
The venue of the fair is at The Singapore Expo Hall 6A.
Date: 22-24 April 2016
Time: 11 am to 9 pm.
Admission is free.
A lot of seniors were at the fair on the first day during the late morning. There were some pushing and shoving where these uncles and aunties tried to get discount vouchers for travel packages at the Resort World booth. This fair seemed like a magnet for seniors.
There were massive crowds at some tour booths as some rushed to book travel packages and coach tickets to Malaysia with fantastic discounts. It was chaotic to say the least. Miscommunication and lack of proper queues were some frustration experienced by visitors who had to push their way around to get ahead.
707 Coach Company is giving out great discounts for coach tickets to Malaysia. You could purchase $50 vouchers for $40 at the fair. You could queue to book return coach tickets to Malacca or Genting Highlands at $40 for 2 persons which is equivalent to a $10 each way per person. Some dates are off course blocked out and surcharge of $5 is imposed on certain travel dates. So the booth for 707 Coach Company was very crowded and doing roaring business.
There were queues at other travel companies as well. WTS Travel was attracting crowds with their discounted packages and bus tickets to Malaysia. However, over at Konsortium Travel, it was disappointing as their staff were not aware of their advertisement on the newspaper on Thursday where the first 50 persons who book coach tickets would get to pay 50 cents for the second coach ticket. They only give a 10% discount on the price of tickets.
There are booths set up to promote Sabah and Sarawak as well. Plenty of information could be obtained from their booths. This would be a good place to head to if you wish to visit East Malaysia.
There are performances at the main stage during the fair. So if you are looking to bring your children to Malaysia for a short trip during the coming school holiday end of next month, this would be a great place to get splendid discounts for your vacation.
The fair is open till Sunday 9 pm. The weekend is a good time to head to the Singapore Expo where the Digital Fair is held next door.
The next Travel Malaysia Fair will be held from 14 to 16 October 2016 at Singapore Expo Hall 6B just before the year end school holiday.
Happy traveling …
