Malaysia is an excellent location for team building activities and MICE events. It is a magnificent nation with an abundance of islands to visit, wonderful beaches, and an excellent infrastructure.
Malaysia is a popular destination for tourists seeking a somewhat more familiar but yet distinctively Asian experience. As a former British colony, English is widely spoken and the nation has excellent road, rail, and aviation infrastructure. It is also home to some of the world's top hotel brands, which contributes to the idea that an incentive trip to Malaysia is a safe decision and not subject to the same degree of uncertainty that you could encounter in less established Southeast Asian nations.
Here are six reasons why Malaysia is ideal for your next incentive trip or team building event:
1. Easy to get to
Kuala Lumpur International Airport consistently ranks among the world's busiest airports. In 2012 alone, 52 million passengers flew through KL. Malaysia is also home to the leading low-cost airline in the area, AirAsia, therefore tickets to KL are regularly available at a discount.
Unlike some of its ASEAN neighbors, Malaysia has invested extensively in excellent road, rail, and aviation networks, making it safe and dependable to visit various regions of the nation. Therefore, you will not have to worry about the condition of the road, a train breakdown, or a delayed flight.
3. Tropical Islands
If you have traveled to the south of Thailand and seen the islands there, you haven't seen anything yet! Langkawi, a luxurious resort island, is a perfect incentive trip destination for MICE and team building activities. The Perhentian islands are also renowned for the possibility of a more relaxed incentive vacation focusing on adventure. If none of these islands meets your requirements, Malaysia offers other more islands that will be better acceptable.
4. The Cameron Highlands
The most mountainous hill station in Malaysia is located in the mild environment of the Cameron Highlands on Malaysia's main land, where the average high temperature is a pleasant low 20s. This makes the Cameron Highlands a fantastic destination to escape the Asian summer heat of the city. The region is also rich in flora and fauna.
5. M.I.C.E (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, Events) Hotels
Malaysia is a well-established MICE destination in Asia. MICE-participating hotels are prominently located in Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi, and the rejuvenating Cameron Highlands. These hotels are more than capable of holding small, medium, and big corporate seminars and team building exercises, as well as maintaining regular company operations back home by offering communication services.
6. Varied Team Building Opportunities
Asian MICE travelers choose Malaysia. Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi, and Cameron Highlands have the most MICE hotels. These hotels may accommodate small, medium, and big corporate seminars and team building exercises while offering telecom services for back-home business.
Advantages of visiting Malaysia
1. Easy accessibility
After Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur has some of the most affordable flights and is accessible within a few hours from the majority of Asia.
2. Rich Ecosphere
If you're going to spend valuable corporate money and time in incentive vacations, you may as well immerse your employees in a world-class natural setting that will encourage them to work harder and become better team members.
3. English language
As English is widely spoken in Malaysia, this should reduce the possibility of misinterpretation between your firm and local operators, as well as provide an opportunity for your personnel to practice English outside of a purely business setting.
4. Local Cuisine
The renowned variety of Malaysian food, which incorporates Chinese, Indian, and Middle Eastern influences, makes Malaysia an enticing destination that is certain to satisfy all tastes.
