FuFu Travel | Malaysia Tourism Hunt 2013

Many thanks to Sham from Gaya Travel Magazine who invited me to join this Malaysia Tourism Hunt (started last year). 

Under the group of media (blogger), I was given a chance to take part this year with local media representatives and more than 15 ASEAN participants from Brunei, Indonesia, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand. 

Registration of this tourism hunt was at The Everly Hotel in Putrajaya. I checked-in at 5pm. Got the goodie bag, with Visit Malaysia Year 2014 t-shirts & polo tees, participant's handbook, tumbler, Media tag, goodie from Tourism Malaysia, etc. 

The welcome dinner was at 7pm. I spent an hour walking around the hotel. To the wetland park, to the lake, and to the shopping mall. Dinner started at 7.30pm. I saw several friends I met during the previous trip to Terengganu. Food was alright. Briefing of the tourism hunt (explanation of the itinerary, safety, etc) started at 8.30pm. 

Called it a day at 11pm after a hot shower.

You must cycle or walk around - highly recommended
