“This plan is important for the government to revitalize the tourism industry after more than a year of the pandemic,” he said.

Muhyiddin also said that the government has plans to implement the tourism bubble in more destinations, particularly those with good methods of controlling the movement of tourists.

“However, this is still at the planning stage and we will look at the results of the Langkawi pilot project first.

“If all goes well, the tourism bubble will be implemented in more areas,” he said.
