Pekan Artisan in talks to boost tourism in Langkawi

PEKAN Artisan Sdn Bhd, which is developing two world-class tourism projects here, is holding talks with the Langkawi Development Authority (Lada) to embark on an interactive light and music show on the island.

The new attraction will enable Langkawi to have its own world light festival, similar to those in Sydney and Amsterdam.

Pekan Artisan signed an agreement last Sunday with Lada to develop an eco-theme park including a hotel and an island resort, with a total investment of RM1.2 billion.
