Tourism Malaysia Hits the Road

Tourism Malaysia Hits the Road

North Islanders keep your eyes peeled from March 8 to 13 as you could spot the Tourism Malaysia and Malaysia Airlines pimped-up campervan cruising around your neighbourhood.

The partners are giving Kiwis the chance to win a trip for two to Malaysia – so make sure you say hi!

Kicking off at Hamilton on March 8, the Tourism Malaysia road show will visit six major cities including Tauranga, Palmerston North, Wellington, Taupo and ending in Rotorua on March 13. (Details of dates and locations, below).

The colourful camper will be parked at a hotspot in each city, from 10.30am – 3.30pm, giving locals the chance to learn about all things Malaysia: from the culture and cuisine of Kuala Lumpur, to the stunning beaches and diving of the Perhentian Islands.

“For Kiwis who are yet to visit Malaysia, we’re bringing a little piece of Malaysia to them,” says Zalina Ahmad, director of Tourism Malaysia in New Zealand. “If you’ve ever thought about taking a trip to Malaysia, or know absolutely nothing about what’s on offer, then pay us a visit. You could learn something new and go in the draw to win your dream Malaysian holiday.”

To be in the running to win a trip for two to Malaysia, sign up for the competition at any of the road show locations, follow the conditions of entry, including ‘liking’ Tourism Malaysia New Zealand on Facebook and you could be on the next flight to KL!

Dates and locations for road show:
March 8 Hamilton: Civic Square
March 9 Tauranga: Salisbury Ave, Mt Maunganui
March 10 Palmerston North: Inside the Square, central car park, opposite the I-Site.
March 11 Wellington: Courtenay Place
March 12 Taupo: public space on Heuheu Street, outside Coin Save
March 13 Rotorua: Corner of Hinemoa and Tutanekai Street under the sails
