Tourist resort chain Club-Med has dropped the prices of their products in Maldives, Malaysia and Phuket, to avoid possible adverse affects the global financial crisis may have on tourism.
The Club-Med marketing office in Bangkok, says that a lot of people are purchasing their holiday products, as they are offering special discounts for the first 100 customers to their new holiday packages.
Although only Maldives, Malaysia and Phuket participated in the package, it now appears that Club-Med resorts in cities such as Bali have also expressed interest in joining the package.
Speaking from Club-Med Kanifinolhu Resort in Maldives, Abdul Samadh told Miadhu News that the resort is performing well this year, and that they expect it to remain so until May.
Experience tourism investors say that, the Club-Med resort lowering their package prices despite being one of the earliest international chains to be established it Maldives, indicates the possible obstacles that the tourism sector might face this year.
