Traditional touch at Taiwan booth
KUALA LUMPUR: The Taiwan Visitors Association Kuala Lumpur Office’s booth drew many visitors at the Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (MATTA) Fair March 2013.
Its marketing manager Chiew Huey Ching said many visitors would snap pictures of the models dressed in traditional Taiwanese costumes.
“Many are attracted by the colourful designs of the cheongsams worn by women and ma gua which is worn by men,” he said at its booth at the Putra World Trade Centre yesterday.
He said there were even some who would put on the ma gua and pose for pictures with the models.
“This is the first time we have come up with this creative concept to stand out among the booths and to attract visitors,” he said.
Chiew added that the ma gua was worn by servants who served the Emperor at the palace during the Qing dynasty.
The booth is one of the over 1,100 booths set up at the fair, offering attractive fares for holiday makers planning to take a break.
The fair, which ends today is held at Hall 1, 1M, 2, 3, Linkway, and Legar Putra Hall at PWTC.
