Tourism and Malaysia
My task was to make country research with problem statement and in -depth analysis.
I choose Malaysia as my destination. Malaysia is a federal constitutional monarchy in Southeast Asia. It consists of thirteen states and three federal territories. It is separated by the South China Sea into two regions, Peninsular Malaysia and Malaysian Borneo. Land borders are shared with Thailand, Indonesia and Brunei and maritime borders exist with Singapore, Vietnam and the Philippines. Peninsular Malaysia is connected to Singapore via causeway and a bridge. The capital is Kuala Lumpura while Putrajaya is the seat of the federal government.
The population is over 28 million. Malaysia is the 43rd populated country and the 66 th largest country by the total land area in the world and land area of around 329,847 square kilometers. The biggest cities are: Kuala Lumpur about 1,448600 inhabitants Johor Bahru about 722200 inhabitants Ipoh about 561700 inhabitants The Malaysian constitution guarantees freedom of religion, Islam is the largest and official religion. Approximately 60,4% of the population practiced Islam, 19,2% Buddhism, 9,1% Christianity, 6,3% Hinduism and 2,9% practice Confucianism, Taoism and other traditional Chinese’s religions.Malaysia is one of the most ethnically and religiously diverse nations in the world, there are all worlds’ major religions. Malay – the largest ethnic group in the Malaysia. Chinese- the first Chinese arrived in Malaysia in the 15 th century.
Indian – the Indian community in Malaysia is the smallest of the three main ethnic groups, accounting for about 10% of the country’s population. First Indians came to Malaya for barter trade especially in the former Straits Settlements of Singapore Malacca and Penang. . Differences races and religions were Malay, Indians, and Chinese’s and many other ethnic groups live together in peace and harmony.Multiculturalism has not only made Malaysia a tasty food paradise, it has also made Malaysia home to hundreds of colorful festivals. No wonder Malaysians like to celebrating and socializing. Malaysia has been one of the best kept tourism secrets in the world.
Malaysia also offers a wide range of cuisine designed to appeal to all tastes, most importantly, at relatively affordable prices. Malaysia tourism obtained the fast development because of the result of it own higher in quality in natural and culture travel resources on top of governments forcefully hold up.Malaysia has become second biggest source of dealings in foreign money and third largest economy sector. But with the excellent scene, we should have a more clear understanding to the tourisms weaknesses and the issues in the Malaysia travel industry to keep on upward it more productively. Summary In this report I mention the vulnerably indicates that in a specific moment and region, because some of specific incidents, influence, the tourism industry appears the casual characteristic a produces a sequences of long time negative effect form this.The tourisms vulnerability usually hides under the travel business long term prosperousness, once meets some certain uncontrolled factors, then the negative effects is get ready to start off, and continuously accumulates and continually reacts. As of the require portion, tourism is based on the satisfaction of the request from people’s daily lives then produces the top level of request for vacations.
So the traveling demand is one kind of non-primary need, once people receive the threat the physiology, the non-primary need, must pass though unavoidably for the primary need.Since the provide portion, tourism is an inclusive industry that the traveling activities need many different industry departments management, if any link short will affect the overall situations. This had decided the tourism is a fairly weak industry in which the six big essential factors: food, hotel, transport, trip shopping and entertainment, make it extremely extends to other profession domains and of course any of the outside has accident will affect the entire traveling industry.

It consists of thirteen states and three federal territories.It is separated by the South China Sea into two regions, Peninsular Malaysia and Malaysian Borneo. Land borders are shared with Thailand, Indonesia and Brunei and maritime borders exist with Singapore, Vietnam and the Philippines.

Indian – the Indian community in Malaysia is the smallest of the three main ethnic groups, accounting for about 10% of the country’s population. First Indians came to Malaya for barter trade especially in the former Straits Settlements of Singapore Malacca and Penang. Best time to visit Malaysia In the Malaysia season in all year. Best time to visit Malaysia is from May to September. Rain months are from October-November and from April-May on the west coast and from November-January on the east coast and in Sabah and Sarawak; beach lovers avoid this time.
It is also not recommended to visit Malaysia since water sports too, don’t work in this season. Concerning the festivities and mega sale carnival, Malaysia obverses travel peak season during November-January. Temperature average is from 21-32o Celcius. Treats in Malaysia Vandalism and terrorism of churches will affect tourism industry. The government is worried that the latest inflammable attacks on churches might have implications on the tourism industry of the country and might threaten the growth of the sector and that she is saddened by the current spiritual anxiety, which will affect both the economy and the industry.The church attacks are sending the wrong message to foreign tourists when Malaysia was always advertised as a harmonious country regardless of its food paradise and multicultural society. Politics problems: safety and security Political instability has influence the tourism industry in Malaysia since many of tourists are fearful.
If the bad things or new continue to happen Malaysia would not be a grant destination for tourists to vacations. One more case Hindu protested in Klang. They are trying to fight for the right of Hindu. It consist of 5000 Barisan National Youth members in anti-Israel demonstration and it was an illegal demonstration.Thought this entire political problem occurs in Malaysia make the tourists fell not secure to bring their family come to vacation Malaysia. Environmental threats: Beauty and clean Malaysia is a country with beautiful beach heaven originates the seashore of Teregganu and Sabah. The tourists are likely to come across these islands to take pleasure in the crystal clear water and experience to the beauty of marine life in the sea.
Malaysia certain incomes is generated from eco-tourism, government have authorities can enhanced those value coral reefs and marine Flora and Fauna.Nonetheless, careless organization and community unawareness had brought further damage to the sea than good. The following are pollutions that infect the environment, which has given an awful impression to the tourists. Rubbish Although several efforts have been made to decrease the quantity of rubbish, there is still no ways to prevent the public from littering the beach. A lot of rubbish at the washed by seawater will affected be alive of marine Flora and Fauna. Imagine that a lot plastic bag and bottle flow on the surface of sea can cause many marine Flora and Fauna lack of carbon dioxide and dead.Additional, imagine that tourists coming to the beaches in Malaysia and found a lot of rubbish littering around the impression in their mind that the beach paradise will be destroy.
Rivers Malaysia is Newly Industrializing country therefore many industries were build. Since, many industries were build, there are also many rivers have become polluted due to many toxic poured out into rivers. Such as the paper making industry, it needs lot of chemical when produce their productions. There are many radical original groups that still survive in Malaysia and the citizens depend on the rivers to stay alive.They depend the rivers for water supply, for food, bath and for their crops. Well, river have become their main important natural resources for their live without rivers their continuous their life generations to generations. The rivers have become a tourist attraction and this has promoted the construction of hotels and resorts around the area.
As a result, many of the forests surrounding the river areas have been cropped down. The surrounding soils have not roots to hold on to and soon erode when the rains come.The soil runs into the rivers and soon the rivers become murky and shut out all the sunlight from reaching the aquatic life in the rivers and streams. This causes them to die. Solutions to threats of Malaysia tourism Social problem and politician problem: Safety and security With the purpose to solve the political instability in Malaysia, a few steps are taken to avoid tourism decline in Malaysia. In this, governments enforce the Anti hopping law. This law establish with it objective: no one can party hopping, where there is no person in the party, who resign from one party is because to join another party.
For example: this happening to be show in Peark. Anti terrorism legislation has being implemented in Malaysia in order to overcome the problem due to terrorism which is call the Internal Security Act (ISA) The ISA also with it objective for restriction on the autonomy of assembly, and freedom of movement for the tourists. Encourage to live in harmonies by government, like recently Malaysia Prime Minister Najib come out “Satu Malaysia” policy. This policy with objective: encourage people live in peace, tolerance between each races, respect each other races religion and cultural and help each other when face problem.With all this, tourism in Malaysia will be increase because Malaysia gives a good example and impression to foreigner that many differences live in one country also can be peaceful. Environmental problem: Beautiful and clean Rubbish To prevent people littering rubbish around the beach, government need to enforce some law to punish the people who simply throw rubbish at the public place in order to reduce the amount of rubbish. Such like beaches, super market, playground, etc.
Establish a campaign like gather several groups of people to clean up the rubbish along the beach.Private or government sector and school can do this campaign. This campaign will let the children to learn how to protect the beauty environment. Encourage to use more recycle paper, less to use plastic bag or bottle. For example: like recently many Sates in Malaysia implement “Recycle Day” that encourage they citizens use recycle bag rather than use plastic bag. To beauty the clean environment will attract more tourists come to visit country and thus help to booming Malaysia economy. Rivers Solutions of rivers pollution can be done by government.
Government can encourage smart agriculture practice use the right sizing applications of fertilizer and using techniques like biodynamic farming, non- till planning, settling ponds, and riparian buffer zones can help keep polluted excess from entering rivers. Enforce law to every industry using and improve sewage treatment, to avoid harmful toxic entering the rivers. For us, support organic food means that there were no pesticides or other harmful contaminants used in the growing of the food, thus the industry and farm will least to pour out that harmful chemical into the rivers.The preservation of natural wetlands provides a relatively simple water pollution solution. Wetlands serve as natures filter and create a natural safeguarding zone between the water and the land.Literature www. themalaysianinsider.
