Traveling is the chance that no one would ever want to miss, not even a second. Just like what they say, “If traveling was free, you would never see me again”, but sadly, traveling is neither free nor cheap. Thus, everyone saves money for it and makes sure to have more than enough to assure to try and see every tourist and adventure spot in the country. However, exploring would be a lot of fun when you are in the country that knows the needs of every tourist and welcomes you warmly, right? That is why, the Tourism Malaysia built a campaign that targets Filipino tourists who plan to visit Malaysia this year. Known as the #MYBFFXOXO or Malaysia Be Friends Forever Hugs & Kisses, this campaign focuses on building bonds, being together and creating lasting memories. Also, it aims to offer Filipino travelers the best benefits when traveling to Malaysia and to give them the best value for their hard-earned money.

By offering a multitude of attractions, Tourism Malaysia desires to promise that tourists will not run out of things to do and enjoy during their stay in Malaysia. In Kuala Lumpur, shopaholics can already have a shopping bliss in its nine signature malls stretching from Bukit Bintang to KLCC. Afterwards, they can satisfy their cravings at Jalan Alor for an authentic street food experience.

And whether they are traveling in a group or solo, tourists should not miss going to Genting Highlands with its cool climate and fun theme parks, casino and nightly live performances. As for those who have a more adventurous spirit, they can go deep sea diving at Sipadan Island, Sabah, which renowned Sea Explorer, Jacques Cousteau declared as an “untouched piece of art”. Explorers can also have fun at the river safari at Kinabatangan River, the longest river in Sabah where monkeys, Asian elephants, hornbills and other wildlife are present. Last but not the least, those who are still a kid-at-heart can head over to Johor and visit Legoland as well as Hello Kitty Town! With these, there is no reason at all for tourists not to have a barrel of fun during their whole stay.

So if you are visiting Malaysia this year, upload your favorite photos of the trip with the hashtag #MYBFFXOXO on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. The best photos will be chosen and the winners will be rewarded with exciting prizes!
