MALACCA: The state is to slash ticket prices for several of its tourist attractions by up to 50% to draw more visitors during non-peak periods.
The idea was mooted by the Malacca Tourism Promotion Division in the light of the current global economic downturn. State Tourism, Culture and Heritage executive councillor Datuk Seet Har Cheow said the proposal received the state executive committee’s approval last week.
“We are now holding discussions with operators of the attractions on how best to implement it,” he told reporters after opening the World Heritage and Tourism Conference here yesterday on behalf of Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam.
Sleep over at the museum is not new in the tourism industry. Many country that have historical building have created a package for visitors to spend night at the museum.

Last week we all went to the most largest IT store in Malaysia that is Low Yat Plaza. I want to buy a smaller laptop for personal use since I am always mobile. Our old Acer a bit bulky. Actually we can buy all the ICT products here at our place in Melaka but going to Plaza Low Yat was just to enjoy the IT bargaining atmosphere there.
