MALACCA: Tourists in Malacca can now enjoy sailing on a luxury yacht and enjoy the experience of five-star dining at high seas.

The 76.62m Lili Marleen, owned by Halim Mazmin Group chief executive officer Tan Sri Halim Mohammad, can take on 50 visitors at a time.

“It's a floating hotel. Besides sailing, tourists can enjoy fine dining,” Halim told reporters after a visit by Malacca Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam on the yacht moored near Malacca Port here recently.

He said the yacht with sails bought in Germany would be used for social activities, adding that tourists would be taken to islands on the Straits of Malacca.

“We can also take tourists to Penang, Langkawi or Sumatra,” said Halim.

He said that tourists could liase with hotels and travel agents to arrange trips.

Asked about the rates, he said this would be discussed with players in the tourism industry.

Halim said the service was in line with Malacca’s recent listing as a Unesco World Heritage Site.

Meanwhile, Mohd Ali said the state and related bodies would help promote the product. – Bernama

    An important idea to think about with picture taking would be the fact you will want to stay away from the display which is built in the digital camera if it is possible. The real reason for this is that the intent behind the built-in flash is to illuminate your subject areas, nonetheless it often will it in this tough the outdoors that your graphics will not have an attractive appearance. Utilize an external display having a diffuser instead. [url=]S6uj74ny[/url]
