Celebrating Merdeka with hotel specials
55 exclusive hotel deals from agoda.com for Malaysia’s 55th year of independence
SINGAPORE - Agoda.com, Asia’s leading hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq: PCLN), today announced exclusive deals on hotels in Malaysia in commemoration of its 55th Merdeka.
This year marks the 55th year of Malaysian independence, and to help promote domestic and international travel to this richly multi-cultural country, agoda.com has secured 55 hotel deals in some of the country’s best destinations.
Independence Day 2012 – more known locally as Hari Kemerdekaan ke-55 – falls on Friday, August 31, a long weekend for Malaysians and a great time to experience Malaysian culture. In Kuala Lumpur, international visitors can get into the celebratory spirit by watching the Merdeka Parade and military flypast. A hotel in Kuala Lumpur near Merdeka Square makes the perfect base for shopping, sight-seeing, and accessing KL’s cosmopolitan dining and entertainment scene.
The Independence Day long weekend is also a great opportunity for travelers to hit the beach. Malaysia’s got some of the prettiest coastlines in Asia, including the idyllic beaches of Langkawi and Pangkor, the historic ports and waterways of Melaka, and Port Dickson’s picturesque Blue Lagoon.
Travelers looking to escape the heat can head to the green hills of the Cameron Highlands, or visit Kota Kinabalu for some downtime with nature. Kuching is also a fun destination for a long weekend, offering a delicious mix of local foods, historic sites, markets, museums, and a dazzling waterfront promenade.
Agoda.com has Malaysia hotel deals in each of these destinations and more, valid for the Independence Day long weekend. To secure a hot deal, click on one of the below hotel deals, or visit http://www.agoda.com/55thHariMerdeka to view even more deals across the country.
