Tourism Students Enrich Their Tour-Planning Skills - 1 Day Tour Package to Kuala Selangor

We are pleased to share that our students under the BA (Hons) Tourism Management programme successfully organised a 1-Day tour package to Kuala Selangor for 22 students recently, as part of their academic requirements for the Retail Travel Operations module at Year 2 of their studies. The entire processes of planning, coordinating, managing, promoting and executing the event were conducted by the students; in which they gain hands-on experience in respective areas of retail travel operations.

The 1-Day tour was inclusive of visits to the Bukit Melawati, Nature Park, Anak Dara Tomb as well as a seafood dinner. The highlights of the tour were the Eagle Feeding session in the Kuala Selangor river and the Fireflies Watching session in Kampung Kuantan. These activities were eye-opening experiences for most of the participants, especially international students, who experienced the beauty of Malaysia’s natural environment for the first time.

Under the teamwork and excellent skills demonstrated by Ainur Fatihah, Surayyo Akhmedova, Miftah Krakatau and Taimur Tariq, Year 2 Tourism Management students, the trip was a remarkable success, as participants provided positive feedback and support. 


“Awesome and enjoyable trip... Looking forward for the next one...” – Amna Batool (Saudi Arabia)
“The trip was perfectly planned. Although the weather was hot, we managed to see the beautiful sunset on a rainy day” - Lizyana Voni (Sabah, Malaysia)
“This is an experiential learning for the students… These are the skills where potential employers will be looking for” – Mr. P Pathmanaban (Tourism lecturer)

The hands-on experience provided a good platform for students to practice their skills and to ensure that they are competent to face challenges from the current tourism industry; with such experience and skills, we believe that our students are ready to accommodate the industry’s requirements that lie in the professional world ahead.
