Perak’s Allure and the Intense Competition in the State Tourism Year

By Zaki Salleh

IPOH: Still two weeks left of the school holiday, a season when family members will spend time vacationing and taking breaks together.

During this period, the Perak Visit Year Celebration will enter its third month

Honestly, the competition to attract external visitors and tourists during this school holiday is intense due to numerous attractive locations nationwide.

Recently, Kelantan has also joined the competition by launching Visit Kelantan 2024, highlighting the authenticity of cultural arts and the heritage of the local community through various program initiatives.

The state government has allocated RM3.3 million to boost international-level programs, with the involvement and collaboration of Asian, European, and Middle Eastern countries.

Who doesn’t recognize Kelantan, famous for its arts, delicious variety of food, and affordable tourist locations? It also serves as a competitor to Perak.

This year, two other states are also organizing their respective state tourism years, namely Melaka and Terengganu.

Melaka, without a doubt, is renowned as an iconic state in international tourism, partly due to the remnants of Portuguese and Dutch colonization.

Even without organizing a state tourism year, Melaka’s tourism aspects are hard to rival by other states, each having its own unique attractions.

Famous as the state with the most museums in Malaysia, it has also succeeded in attracting visitors due to its diversity, as Melaka’s museums remain open during school holiday seasons.

The Terengganu state government, through the Terengganu State Tourism Department, organized the Beautiful Terengganu Carnival Program 2024 from February 22 to 25 at Taman Awam Shahbandar, Kuala Terengganu.

Terengganu aims to welcome around 4.5 million tourists this year.

For the state synonymous with “keropok lekor,” batik, and pristine white beaches, the visitor attendance figures are considered realistic.

In the Visit Perak 2024 campaign, the target is set for the arrival of more than eight million tourists.

Perak is equally impressive.
