Tourism in Malaysia

NCBM is promoting an inclusive tourism in Malaysia and South East Asia; and is therefore partnering with interested organisations to make sites and events accessible to the BVI’s (Blind and Visually Impaired). NCBM is looking for more partners throughout Malaysia to help develop your site/event becoming inclusive for the BVI’s.

At present NCBM can recommend the following sites. Kindly note to take direct contact with the sites involved for more information or to arrange for audio descriptive visits. Please refer to our website as your source of information. Thanks.
