MITM 2011 Travel Fair Review
I just came back from MITM 2011 Travel Fair at Mid Valley Exhibition Center (MVEC). The travel fair will be ending this Sunday.
This is my first time visiting a MITM Travel Fair. For the entrance, there will be a RM 3 (US$1) charge per person, children are free. You will receive a MITM 2011 Travel Fair recycle bag and brochures and info about the fair.
Entering the fair, immediately I spotted the Taiwan booth. It has been more than 12 years since I visited Taiwan and a few of my friends planned to visit Taiwan next year. Visiting Taiwan nowadays is not just about savouring their street food but also visiting their farms and hot springs.
Walking around the three halls in Mid Valley Exhibition Center (MVEC) reminds me of MATTA Fair. Most of the tour operators are there.
I visited my friends at Tourism Authority of Thailand booth. We all know about the flood situation in Bangkok but there are also other tourist spots are not affected by it. In fact, I just came back from my family trip to Krabi. We had sunny days for my four days trip there. Other than Bangkok, you still can travel to Hua Hin, Phuket, Krabi, Hatyai and many more. Please do not assume the whole Thailand is flooded, it is wrong. I’m planning for my next Bangkok trip probably next year. My parents will be traveling to Bangkok end of the year for shopping. Visit Tourism Authority of Thailand booth at Booth A001-A002.
There is also a Malaysia Airlines booth. They are very supportive of the MITM Travel Fair with special promos for this weekend only.
Same goes to Air Asia who makes their presence felt there. In fact, we just traveled to Krabi with Air Asia. No flight delays and no problems.
For those who have watched Wonders of India TV Commercials, you can go to India from as low as RM 1999. Interesting enough, they offer Buddhist Pilgrimage tour. Their booth is at Hall One Booth 1054-1055.
Golden Destinations are celebrating their 20th Anniversary and they are giving their customers cool prizes as well as lucky draws.
Recently, I was glued to Animax for the anime version of “Winter Sonata”. To catch all their real locations of Winter Sonata, check out Korea National Tourism Board booth at Hall Two Booth 2001-2002.
If you want to have the Touching Moments with Macau, Macau Tourism Board booth is at Hall Two Booth 2003-2004. I went to Macau for the first time this year and I loved it.
Having MITM Travel Fair now means you can plan for your end of the year / Chinese New Year trips. With shorter time frame, it is easier to plan your holidays.
It is good to see an upcoming travel fair like MITM. Hopefully, they can be an annual event. With more travel fairs, tour prices will be more competitive and it benefits consumers and travelers like us.
