Tourists to Perak stand to gain if they are in the possession of a newly introduced loyalty card. Points collected from the use of the card can be redeemed for gifts or cash, depending on the amount amassed. The card can be obtained free from the Mega Dynasty office in Greentown Business Centre, Ipoh.
Mega Dynasty, incidentally, is a well-known advertising company in Ipoh. General Manager, Daniel Lee said that a thousand cards have been produced and are ready for collection by customers, foreigners and locals alike. “Card owners can use the card to purchase goods at discounted prices at stores and centres that display the card’s logo.”
Mega Dynasty has gone a step further to help promote Visit Perak Year 2012 (VPY 2012) by entering into an agreement with a travel agent from China. It will help Guijiang Travel (China) care for its Chinese visitors when they are in Perak.
A memorandum of understanding to initiate the deal was made. The signing ceremony, held at Kinta Riverfront Hotel and Suites, Ipoh recently was witnessed by Dato’ Hamidah Osman, Executive Councillor for Tourism.
“The number of Chinese tourists to Perak has increased compared to the same period last year,” said Hamidah to reporters. “They’re the second largest number of foreign tourists to the state.”
