Malaysia Growing Outbound Market
Pick up any Asian gateway or destination visitor statistics these days and in more cases than not, Malaysia comes up in the list of top growth markets.
More importantly for the region is Malaysian's love traveling in Asia.
Viewing PATA's Asia Pacific regional data from 2011, 62% of outbound travel came to Southeast Asia, 32% to Northeast Asia with the remains scattered to AustralPacific and South Asia.
There is little doubt that the whirlwind, which is AirAsia, has boosted the trend and as the LCC's continue to rack up more destinations that the trend will continue to show strong growth.
