Adapting to the digital age, Tourism Malaysia is thrilled to support the eternalisation of Malaysia’s beautiful destinations and attractions through creative digital photography. Serving as the perfect reminder of what Malaysia has to offer, Tourism Malaysia hopes this collaboration will continue inspiring domestic travel among Malaysians. Tourism Malaysia’s Director General Mr. Zulkifly Md Said, hopes that this collaboration could also help audiences rediscover the beauty of Malaysia’s destinations.

“Domestic travel has been serving as a saviour for our tourism industry. For the first time in 2019, Malaysia recorded a higher expenditure by domestic tourism as compared to inbound tourism, contributing RM92.6 billion in expenditure, equivalent to 50.9% of the internal tourism consumption. To return to the better days, we must remain disciplined in adhering to the SOPs and staying vigilant. It is our hope to see Malaysia return as a safe haven for all our tourists,” said Mr. Zulkifly Md Said.

In coming up with this initiative, OPPO believes the current situation serves the best time for Malaysians to explore the beauty and culture of Malaysia through a new perspective.

“OPPO is always on the constant progress of making technology changes to enhance life quality and bring more convenience to people. We do the same thing for cameras too. Through the spirit of RENO, we want to inspire, encourage, and unleash people’s talents in photography,” said Ray Wong, Product Manager of OPPO Malaysia
