Tourism up in Malaysia despite recent H1N1 cases

Thursday, 23 July 2009

Tourism to Malaysia grew by 7.5% in June after a small 0.3% decline in May. The increase in tourism came despite an increase in confirmed H1N1 cases in the country. Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen believes that the reason for the increase in tourism can be credited to medical tourism. "Malaysia is also the place to see the fusion of Eastern traditional healing methods blending with the modern sciences of the West," she said. Malaysia was recently reported by Deloitte as the most preferred destination for medical tourism in East Asia.
