Malaysia is one of Southeast Asia’s most dynamic and diverse tourism, travel and hotel marketplaces. As Asia rises from the impact of the Covid-19 crisis, the hospitality industry is looking for green shoots in the shape of travel bubbles or green lanes to trigger the recovery. With nearly two-thirds of Malaysia’s tourists coming from ASEAN, inter-regional and cross border travel are the early movers in the uphill journey ahead.

• Tourism attractions – what are they doing to recreate themselves in the post crisis world?
