‘Domestic tourism at its lowest ebb last year, mindset shift needed’ By YS Chan

SINCE 2008, the Department of Statistics Malaysia (DOSM) has been conducting surveys on domestic tourism and publishing a report for the previous year at the end of every June. Right on cue, the 2021 Domestic Tourism Survey was posted at its website on June 29 for public scrutiny.
As expected, all the key performance indicators (KPI) continued to drop as travel restrictions were more severe last year than the previous year.
The total number of domestic visitors dropped by 49.9% from 131.7 million in 2020 to 66 million in 2021.
