SINGAPORE, October 24, 2022 – (SEAPRWire) – Following its second participation at ITB Asia, Malta Tourism Authority looks forward to welcoming more visitors from the Asia Pacific region.
Having met with buyers from across Asia over the three-day event, the enthusiasm and excitement received from the travel trade learning about the many tourism products and experiences in Malta will inspire a new wave of travellers from the region.
From city dwellers looking for a coastal escape to movie buffs wanting to relive the cinematic experience of some of Hollywood blockbusters, the beautiful unspoilt coastlines of Malta have been the location for many iconic films such as Gladiator, Troy, World War Z and most recently Jurassic World 3: Dominion.
With three UNESCO World Heritage listed sites, Malta’s deep history spans over 7,000 years with some of the oldest free-standing monuments in the world. No trip to Malta is complete without going on a journey through time, from prehistoric times to modern day.
Sports enthusiasts will delight in a plethora of activities across the lush countryside, countless beaches, cliffs and clear blue waters. Malta is also the preferred destination for many sporting teams. Manchester United has chosen VisitMalta as its official destination partner as the island has the oldest standing supporters club in the world.
Some of the highlight attractions to be featured at ITB Asia include the annual religious and cultural festivals in the Maltese events calendar. From feast days, religious holidays and cultural events, the festive commemorations are a time for celebration, food, drink and merriment which brings out the Mediterranean roots of the locals. Notable festivals include the Notte Bianca in October with around 50 different events happening during the same night. The Medieval Mdian Festival taking place in July takes visitors back to the medieval period and includes a number of pageants and re-enactments of battle scenes, traditions of the time and related events.
“Asia is such a dynamic market where travellers are enthusiastic, adventurous and looking for new and exciting offerings. Malta definitely has so much to offer them.” Xiaolong Wu, Marketing Manager of Malta Tourism Authority
