MATTA (Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents) once again present the MATTA Fair. For the second time around this year, the #1 Consumer Travel Fair (also the biggest) in Malaysia is back with the best travel deals!

Held at Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) in Kuala Lumpur over the weekend (yes, only this weekend), the MATTA Fair has four large halls of booths and exhibitors. Exhibitors of the Fair consists of tour operators, travel agencies, national tourism organizations, state tourism organizations, airlines, cruises, hotels & resorts, and other traveled related products and service providers.

We’re talking over 1,000 booths in total.


Now, it’s quite a journey to explore all PWTC halls in search of your “best buy” dream holiday, but it’s worth it. With offerings of super cheap packages (from as low as RM4,000 to Europe, RM1,200 to Korea, RM528 to Hong Kong), new and repackaged travel deals with bursting itineraries, cruise choices, promotional year end holiday flights’ prices, and even tours that can be tailored to the traveler’s budget and interest, exhibitors are ready to attend to each customer as an individual.

What’s that you say? International trips are too expensive? Well then, AirAsia and our local tour agencies will also be present at PWTC all weekend to offer you the lowest fares and best deals for domestic travels.

There’s also the MATTA Fair Buyers’ Contest which features a “Main Draw” – a Grand Prize of RM20,000 worth of travel vouchers from MATTA. How to be in the running to win it? Easy. All you gotta do is spend a minimum of RM500 for any travel and holiday packages. For the “Domestic Draw”, the Grand Prize is RM5,000 worth of travel vouchers. To have a shot at winning that, you would need to spend as little as RM200 on domestic packages.

MATTA expects thousands of Malaysians to flock to PWTC over these two days to check out the fair. We’ve already gotten first dibs yesterday – as early as 10am. The influx of holiday goers who flocked in between 10am to noon was insane!

People were practically racing to snag early bird prices, check out the best deals first before anyone else (some are first come first serve basis and are limited), and also to catch the stage performances in Hall 1M (international traditional drum performances and cultural dances).
