The FAM Trip aims to motivate Indonesian travel agents, particularly those focusing on the MICE segment, to actively promote tour packages to Malaysia. It underscores the significance of the Indonesian market for Malaysia’s tourism industry, emphasising the substantial growth in arrivals observed in 2023 and the strong connectivity with 628 direct flights per week from Indonesia to Malaysia. Indonesia remains a crucial market for Malaysia, and with Garuda Indonesia providing daily flights from Jakarta, there is optimism for restoring pre-pandemic performance and enhancing the bilateral relationship.

Last year, Malaysia has warmly welcomed over 3.1 million Indonesian tourists, celebrating the rich tapestry of cultural exchange and friendship between both nations. Tourism Malaysia anticipates more arrivals from Indonesia in conjunction with the state visit year 2024 campaign in Melaka, Kelantan, Perak, and Perlis.

This campaign sets the stage for the forthcoming Visit Malaysia Year 2026, which aims to attract 35.6 million foreign tourists, targeting a revenue of RM147.1 billion. To uncover more about remarkable Malaysian experiences, visit Malaysia.travel.
