Visit Malaysia 2007 Launch

The Visit Malaysia 2007 was launched in pomp and splendour at Taman Tasik Titiwangsa here last night. Even the rain did not dampen the spirit of the thousands, both local and foreign, who gathered as early as noon to witness the celebration. Colourful fireworks illuminated the sky throughout the celebration.

The Eye on Malaysia ferris wheel at Taman Tasik Titiwangsa will be open to the public until Dec 31, that is, end of this year.

Set up in conjunction with Visit Malaysia 2007, anyone taking a ride in its 42 gondolas will be able to view major landmarks such as the Petronas Twin Towers and Menara Kuala Lumpur during the 12-minute ride. On a clear day, it was reported that Genting Highlands can also be seen.

The first week of Visit Malaysia 2007 has seen some 390,000 tourists, mostly from Asian countries, visiting Malaysia.

    Must make an effort to come visit Malaysia this year!!!

  2. Yes, you must! LOL! I haven't been to Titiwangsa for a long time. I saw some TV footage of the place during the day of the launch and the place looks different from what I knew of it. I remember the restaurant served pretty good chilli crabs but not sure if it's still there.
