THE Impiana KLCC Hotel & Spa treated taxi drivers in Kuala Lumpur to packed lunches in appreciation of their efforts in ferrying people around the city to their destination.
The hotel also distributed special car stickers with the Malaysian flag in commemoration of 50th Independence to the drivers.
The campaign was part of the Impiana's Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program inline with Visit Malaysia 2007.
Impiana general manager Mark Rummery, said that this was their way of saying thank you to them.
“Taxi drivers play an important role but are often overlooked in promoting both public transportations and tourism.”
He added that with Merdeka around the corner, guests can look forward to more interesting events. Some of the highlights include a Malaysian infused fashion show on 18 August by local designer Amir Johari, a tribute to Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley on August 25 and a 14-hour non-stop charity salsa, which is endorsed by the Malaysian Book of Records on September 7.
