Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Nancy Shukri noted that the recent reopening of Langkawi has seen success under the trial travel bubble.

Other priority tourist destinations in the district such as Genting Highlands and Fraser Hill have seen vaccination rates reach 100% in preparation for the reopening of the sector.

Nancy is likely to hold a meeting to discuss the reopening of interstate tourism, according to Bernama.

Following the reopening of the sector, Resort World Genting is very happy and ready to welcome tourists by ensuring the safety of visitors.
