  1. It’s great that your government find ways to further other areas in your country for tourism. If there is one industry that constantly change and needs to adapt to changes it would be tourism. Langkawi Island looks amazing. Thanks for sharing.

  2. It’s always a nice thing to know that the government is taking initiative in improving the tourism of the place. The place looks a great destination for locals and travellers alike who are looking into exploring other places. Similarly, I’m reminded by the other islands here in my home country just by looking at Langkawi island.

  3. I think every developing country should have its own inbound tourist association. Presenting our own natural beauties and tourist destinations is of utmost importance. If all of us would first meet our homeland and then go to other countries, every country in the world would be successful and well-developed.
    I love the story you shared. Not only does it show how beautiful your country is, but it is also very inspirational and a kind of a guide to other bloggers and why not governments. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Congratulations on being part of this initiative. I also want to join a tour organized by the government or a travel agency in the future as a blogger. All of my trips are family trips, personal trips or business trips so far. I think I will enjoy meeting new people that way, too. =)

  6. It has been a long time when I last visited your blog. I like how you write like a third party than writing like the common ways on how we wrote our blogs. Love the emojis too! With your post, I can say that you had a great time with the promotion. Love your Langkawi Island, hoping to visit Malaysia soon, too!
