Through aggressive promotion, Ramadan bazaars might just become another tourist product for local and foreign tourists, Deputy Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Sulaiman Abdul Rahman Taib said Saturday.
With the right move, Malaysia could attract more tourists from Muslim countries in the Middle East and Africa to experience Ramadan festivities here, he said at the launch of a Ramadan bazaar here.
His speech was read out by the ministry's deputy secretary-general, Datuk Ab Ghaffar A. Tambi.
Meanwhile, the ministry, with the cooperation of Petronas and Maggi, today prepared and distributed 100 cauldrons of 'Kampung Baru bubur lambuk' to the public.
Meanwhile, City Hall director-general Datuk Salleh Yusup said they had approved 6,700 Ramadan bazaar sites at 11 parliamentary constituencies in the Federal Territory.
He said City Hall charged traders a monthly fee of between RM14.25 to RM130 while those selling at Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman and Jalan Masjid India were charged between RM170 to RM785 per lot.
