We enclose a link to this Art Tourism Shuttle which was organised here in Kuala Lumpur. It was a very insightful experience to find out that many people are not aware that there are many wonderful paintings they can enjoy and also buy home. Malaysia indeed has got many good artists and there are also foreigners who are artists living in Malaysia. We will leave this to AsiaWings Holidays to enhance it.

Art Tourism Shuttle is necessary because during the month of November,  it is the rainy season in Langkawi.  But rain or shine this Art Tourism Shuttle will run on a fixed schedule to all the hotels to pick up tourists. On their way journeying to the exhibition, the tourists will be given questionnaires for them to indicated whether they are on the island for the first time to purposely attend Langkawi Art Biennale or maybe they are art collectors themselves back home where they also attend art exhibitions and even buy paintings.  During the journey, the idea is to gather information on how we can to continue to work with AsiaWings Holidays to improve this Art Tourism Shuttle service for future Langkawi Art Biennale events.

This year, we have AsiaWings Holidays to lead a group of tourist guides who are knowledgeable in art and also very passionate in art. They will organise the Art Tourism Shuttle. This shuttle will be on a regular schedule to pick up tourists from all the participating hotels within the Langkawi Island. This is a new feature for Langkawi island where an Art Tourism Shuttle is going around from hotels to pick up tourists to see art at Langkawi International Convention Centre.
