INTRODUCING VISIT MALAYSIA YEAR 2014
MASCOT: THE PROBOSCIS MONKEY
They have huge noses that garner attention. They also
have big bellies and live in groups. They are not your
ordinary tree swinging monkeys. They don’t eat ripe
bananas. And they have webbed feet and swim
incredibly! Yes, we are talking about the proboscis
monkey, a rare and endangered animal found primarily
in Borneo and predominantly in Sabah. As Malaysia
prepares for the hosting of its grandest tourism
celebration - Visit Malaysia Year (VMY) in 2014, the
country’s commitment to the protection of its ecological
treasures and in particular, the conservation of its many
indigenous animals provide a platform of opportunity to
share with the world its many fascinating creatures that
are so often hidden from the general public.
Given also Malaysia’s regional prominence as the
guardian of some of Asia’s rarest and most endangered
species, the selection of such an animal mascot to
symbolically represent the VMY 2014 campaign weighs
of utmost importance. For this, the Ministry of Tourism
and Culture, Malaysia has decided upon one of the
most endangered of animals listed in the International
Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN)’s Red List of
Threatened Species - the Proboscis Monkey as the
official mascot for Visit Malaysia Year 2014. A native to
the heartland of Borneo (East Malaysia), this very
distinctive species of mammal has some of the most
unique qualities that set its biological and physical
features apart from other primates.
HISTORY OF VISIT MALAYSIA YEAR
Visit Malaysia Year (VMY) was first launched in 1990 with
the theme “Fascinating Malaysia. Year of Festivals”. The
campaign was a huge success with Malaysia charting
7.4 million in tourist arrivals compared to 4.8 million in
1989. To enable tourists to easily recognize Malaysia, the
“Orang Utan, the endangered species found in East
Malaysia was used as a mascot and it was named
“Wira”. Apart from it, Kuala Lumpur’s famous landmark,
Sultan Abdul Samad building was featured as the
official Visit Malaysia Year 1990 logo. Malaysia
Independence Day in August 31 was the anchor for 84
major events, 14 festivals and nine exhibitions during
VMY 1990. Who could ever forget the song “To know
Malaysia is to love Malaysia” during VMY 1990?
09
The success of VMY 1990 has spurred another VMY in
1994. This time around, the theme was “Fascinating
Malaysia. Naturally More”. VMY 1994 maintained its
words “Fascinating Malaysia” for the theme but
injected a punch line “Naturally More” to reflect
more exciting things and events lined up for that
year. “Orang Utan” was once again used as the
mascot.
The third VMY was launched in 2007 in conjunction
with Malaysia’s 50th Independence Anniversary.
Hence, the theme “Celebrating 50 years of
Nationhood” was most befitting to reflect this
important anniversary celebration. Efforts were also
intensified in all advertising and promotional
activities, including the call for action “The time is
now. The place is Malaysia” together with its
successful and impactful slogan “Malaysia Truly Asia.
In line with the 50th Independence Anniversary, over
200 events across the country with 50 major events
were held to showcase Malaysia’s wealth of tourism
attractions. All in all, VMY 2007 charted a tremendous
success beyond expectations with 20.97 million in
tourist arrivals and RM46.1 billion in tourist receipts. This
means a rise of 3.42 million and RM9.8 billion from the
previous year.
In 2014, Malaysia will celebrate its fourth Visit
Malaysia Year with the theme “Celebrating
1Malaysia Truly Asia” to reflect the diversity in unity of
all Malaysians. The Proboscis Monkey has been
chosen as the mascot while the promotional
campaign has started in 2013 with a series of
year-long special events and activities leading to
VMY 2014. This time around, VMY 2014 will be the
biggest and grandest ever tourism celebration with
hundreds of events and festivals all lined up to
welcome the world. Overall, it is hoped that VMY
2014 will contribute to the Government’s target to
receive 36 million tourist arrivals and RM168 billion in
receipts by 2020, as outlined in the Malaysia Tourism
Transformation Plan (MTTP) 2020.

TUN MUSTAPHA TOWER ( YAYASAN SABAH )
Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park comprises a
group of 5 islands located between 3 to 8 km off
Kota Kinabalu. The park is spread over 4,929
hectares, two thirds of which cover the sea. Before
the Ice age, it formed part of the Crocker Range
mass of sandstone and sedimentary rock on the
mainland. However, about one million years ago, the
melting ice brought about changes in the sea level
and parts of the mainland were cut off by the sea to
form the islands of Pulau Gaya, Pulau Sapi,Pulau
Manukan, Pulau Mamutik dan Pulau Sulug. Evidence
of this can be seen from the exposed sandstone of
the coastline forming the cliffs, caves, honeycombs
and deep crevices. The park was named after Tunku
Abdul Rahman, Malaysia's first Prime Minister.
The Yayasan Sabah Tower (officially known as
Menara Tun Mustapha) is located in Kota Kinabalu,
Malaysia. It was built in 1977 and it is the second
tallest building in the island of Borneo This 30-storey

KRABI THAILAND
( The Isle of James Bond )
( Source :http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krabi)
INTRODUCTION
Krabi is a town on the west coast of southern Thailand at the mouth of the Krabi River where it empties
in Phangnga Bay. As of 2005 the town has a population of 24,986. The town is the capital of Krabi
Province and Krabi district.
Tourism is an important industry. Krabi is a southern province on Thailand's Andaman seaboard with
perhaps the country's oldest history of continued settlement. After dating stone tools, ancient colored
pictures, beads, pottery and skeletal remains found in the province's many cliffs and caves, it is
thought that Krabi has been home to Homo Sapiens since the period 25,000 - 35,000 B.C. In recorded
times it was called the 'Ban Thai Samor', and was one of twelve towns that used, before people were
widely literate, the monkey for their standard. At that time, c. 1200 A.D., Krabi was tributary to the
Kingdom of Ligor, a city on the Kra Peninsula's east coast better known today as Nakhon Si
Thammarat.
TOURISM
Much of the province has been the seat of several national parks. The topmost destinations are Hat
Noppharat Thara, Ao Nang, Railay, Ko Phi Phi National Park. Yet over 80 smaller islands such as Lanta
islands, or Koh Lanta, Phi Phi islands - made famous as the ideal location for adventurers, yachtsmen,
scuba-divers, snorkelers and day-trippers from Phuket.
The Ko Lanta National Park, also in Krabi province, includes several coral-fringed islands with
well-known diving sites. The largest island, Ko Lanta Yai, is the site of park headquarters, and is also
home to Chao Le, or sea gypsies who sustain themselves largely through fishing. The islands are best
visited during the non-monsoon months of October through April.Kayaking, sailing, birdwatching,
snorkeling are also among top activities. In the interior, two predominantly mainland national parks,
Khao Phanom Bencha and Than Bokk-horani, offer inland scenic attractions including waterfalls and
caves, and opportunities for trekking, birdwatching and eco-tours.The rock faces at Railay Beach
near Aonang have attracted climbers from all over the world and each year are the venue for the
Rock and Fire Festival. There are several Rock Climbing schools at Railay beach.

THE JAMES BOND ISLAND
Khao Phing Kan or Ko Khao Phing is a pair of islands on the west
coast of Thailand, in the Phang Nga Bay, Strait of Malacca. About
40 metres (130 ft) from its shores lies a 20 metres (66 ft) tall islet Ko
Tapu or Khao Tapu. The island is a part of the Ao Phang Nga
National Park. Since 1974, when it was featured in the James Bond
movie The Man with the Golden Gun, it is popularly called James
Bond Island.
Before 1974, the island was a rarely visited indigenous area. However, it was chosen as one of the locations for
the 1974 James Bond movie The Man with the Golden Gun as the hideout for Bond's antagonist, Francisco
Scaramanga. After the movie release it turned into a popular tourist destination that has gradually
contaminated Khao Phing Kan with household litter. In 1981, the island became the most famous part of the
newly established Ao Phang Nga Marine National Park. Since 1998, it is forbidden for tourist boats to approach
Ko Tapu. This measure aims to stop erosion of the limestone rocks on and near the islet that might eventually
result in its collapse.
TIGER CAVE TEMPLE
The Tiger Cave Temple is a Buddhist temple located northeast of
Krabi, Thailand. One of the most sacred Buddhist sites in the province,
it is well known for the tiger paw prints in the cave, tall Buddha statues
and the strenuous flight of stairs to reach the summit. At the top of the
mountain there is a huge golden Buddha statue that stands at 278
meters tall. The Buddha statue is visible from the bottom of the
mountain before climbing the stairs along with other buildings. The
temple has two short stairways that then merges leading to one
single stairway leading to the summit, amassing to a total number of
1272 small steps. Another set of stairways lead to a second limestone
cave. Summit to the temple.
RAILAY BEACH
Railay is a small peninsula located between the city of Krabi and Ao
Nang in Thailand. Accessible only by boat due to the high limestone
cliffs cutting off mainland access. These cliffs attract rock climbers
from all over the world, but the area is also popular due to its
beautiful beaches and quiet relaxing atmosphere. Accommodation
ranges from inexpensive bungalows popular with backpackers and
climbers, to the renowned jet-set resort of Rayavadee. The four main
areas of Railay consist of Pranang, West Railay, East Railay and
Tonsai, with Tonsai catering more to climbers. Railay beach was not
severely affected by the tsunami of December 26, 2004.

KHAO PHA KHOM,
Rocky Windows and Secret Lagoon in the Sea
The wondrous stone cliff of the Laem Sak limestone hills lies hidden
not far away from Laem Sak Pier, around Chong Lad Tai,
straddling up to 100 meters, with stalactites forming a curtain, as
amazing windows through which on has to stoop down, as the
origin of the name Khao Pha Khom. Behind the cliff is a large
lagoon, which is filled with emerald green water every 3rd day to
the 6th day of the waning and the waxing moon.
This wondrous rocky cliff has long been hidden away from visitors,
although it lies not far from Laemsak Boat Landing at Chong Lad
Tai area, It is a cliff of the Laemsak limestone hill, about 100 meters
in length, Climbing up the stairs, one has to stoop ant walk under
the cliff, thus the name of Khao Pha Khom - the Cliff of Stooping
Walk Throughout the cliff, there are stalactites forming flowing
curtain, making up rocky windows through which a lookout to the
high sea and the faraway Karos Mountains can be made.
How to get there: From Laemsak Boat Landing., use the
long-tailed boat for a trip of about 20 minutes
Best time to visit: All year round, but the best period is from
November to May
Best period of the day: Morning at sunrise from 6.00 to 7.00 hrs.
while the tour of the lagoon should be suring high tide, the 3rd to
the 6th day of the waxing or the waning moon, when the tide is
at its peak during daytime.
KLONG THA POM
Klong Tha Pom (Tha Pom Canal) is a
beautiful area to visit. Five kilometers in
length, it is unique for its outstandingly clear
emerald-green waters and its location on
the tideline. The canal water is alternatively
fresh or brackish depending upon the state
of the tides. This has resulted in the
development of three different forest
systems in a very concentrated area. Only
100 metres from the car park you will find the
amazingly clear waters which allow sight of
this underwater world. The fresh water is high
in dissolved limestone which inhibits the
formation of precipitates so that the water
truly sparkles in the sunlight, as it flows
between the mangrove-lined banks.
The canal is a fascinating microcosm of Thailand’s forest areas. Visitors will first encounter the mangrove wetlands
with their characteristic tortuous tangle of surface roots but this gives way to the rarely found fresh water swamp
forest with small trees and sparse vegetation. This in turn yields to typical rain forest with lush tree growths and
shaded paths.
Opening Hours: Daily from 08.30 am. - 02.30 pm.
