Abstract

In line with the Malaysia Tourism Transformation Plan 2020, this study attempts to investigate the determinants of tourism demand in Malaysia by tourists from China. Based on monthly time series data (1995 to 2013), the study employed co-integration and error correction technique in examining the determinants of tourism demand in Malaysia by tourists from China.The findings reveal that income is significant in determining international tourist arrivals from China.As for the alternative destination, the result shows that Thailand is a substitute destination whereas Singapore is a complement destination for Malaysia. Therefore, increase in the prices of tourism in Thailand will increase tourist arrivals from China to Malaysia while a decrease in the prices of tourism in Singapore will increase tourists‘ arrivals from China to Malaysia.
