Chinese tourists are slowly gaining confidence in traveling to Malaysia after the disappearance of Flight MH370 two years ago.
Mint Leong, secretary-general of the Malaysian Inbound Tourism Association (Mita), said the Chinese tourist confidence level could be seen from their increasing number entering the country via the Malaysia-Singapore Second Link (Linkedua).
“This year, we see the trend changing with Chinese tourist arrivals in this country increasing to as high as 80 to 200 buses daily, through the Second Link, especially during public holidays,” she said.
She was speaking to reporters after visiting the Sultan Abu Bakar Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) Complex in Johor Baru today.
Yesterday, a congestion lasting four hours occurred at Linkedua, caused by heavy inflow and outflow of traffic, including 180 buses ferrying 7,200 Chinese tourists. – Bernama, March 13, 2016.
