Congratulations to winners of the recent Malaysia Tourism Award 2010/2011 !

The gracious presence of Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah and Raja Permaisuri Agong Tuanku Haminah Hamidun certainly made the Malaysia Tourism Award ceremony, a grand affair to remember.

First initiated in 1987, the Malaysia Tourism Award, is held bi-annually. It is the highest accolade given, in recognition to those who excel in the development of the country’s tourism industry.

Nominations for the event had started earlier in the year, from 10 April to 4 June, 2011. This is the 17th year the award is running, with this year seeing 35 award winners given the highest accolade in the tourism industry in Malaysia.

The award also celebrates Malaysia as a Top World Tourism Destination, appreciation for all the contribution, hardwork and dedication of the captain and players of the tourism industry from the frontliners to the owners of the Tourism and Hospitality industries.

Among the categories include innovative tourist attraction, innovative shopping outlets, best tour programme, best hotel services and others.
