This morning, At-Taqwa Travel Tours Sdn Bhd held a briefing for their umrah pilgrims who will be performing their umrah this coming December. Around 400 pilgrims will be heading to Madinah and Makkah under the care of At-Taqwa Travel Tours Sdn Bhd and they will be flying in different batches from 2nd December to the final batch on 28th December 2017. I shall be flying off on the as the third batch on 9th December 2017 Inshaa Allah.

The briefing was held at Al-Falaah School at Sg. Akar where representatives from At-Taqwa Travels Tour and their liaison officers (logistics team) were present as well as a representative from Takaful Brunei. Manager Director of At-Taqwa Travel Tours Pg Hj Mohd Rosdimar Pg Hj Omarali gave a welcoming remarks to the pilgrims after a blessing prayer by Ustaz Abdus Salam.

Pg Hj Mohd Rosdimar was very appreciative of At-Taqwa Travel Tours’ pilgrims in trusting in their service. He mentioned that this is the second year that At-Taqwa Travel Tours are organising Umrah for the residents of Brunei Darussalam. The response has been very encouraging and he believes that the company’s core values – efficient, reliable, quality and service – will be instrumental to the growth and success of At-Taqwa Travel Tours. He believes that providing real service, we must add something which is priceless or not measurable. He also instill the value of sincerity and integrity in At-Taqwa Travel Tours.

The briefing was led by Pengiran Fakhrulrazi bin Pengiran Haji Omarali, the Head of the Haji and Umrah Department. Accompanying him were  Awangku Mohd Nassiruddeen bin Pengiran Haji Yussof, the Chief Financial Officer and Haji Shamsul Bahrin bin Haji Abdul Rahman, the Chief Operating Officer and a representative from Takaful Brunei. There was also a brief ceramah by Ustaz Hj Khairul Nazif.

The briefing touched on preparation for the pilgrims such as bringing the appropriate documents, wearing appropriate attire and the dos and the donts while in the Holy land. The briefing was useful in prepping the pilgrims for their upcoming Umrah pilgrimage and some of the audience were given opportunities to ask questions.

The pilgrims were also handed over a luggage, powerbank, pillow neck and a bottle as a token of appreciation from At-Taqwa Travel Tours Sdn Bhd.

Next week there will be another briefing for the pilgrims where there will be given a practical demo on Umrah such as Tawaf and Saie to be held at Sg. Kebun Sports Complex.

This is a good initiative by At-Taqwa Travel Tours Sdn Bhd to give more added value to their customers in preparation for Umrah. For more updates, you can follow their instagram @at_taqwa_travel_tours or you can call, 243 1234 or 719 1676. Some images courtesy of Sazali Ariff and whatsapp.

Mr. Brett McDougall, Executive General Manager – Sales and Marketing, Royal Brunei Airlines, His Excellency Datuk Ghulam Jelani bin Khanizaman, High Commissioner of Malaysia to Brunei Darussalam, Hj Ibrahim Seddiqi bin Talib, Director of Tourism Malaysia (Brunei) and Ms. Nur Khadijah, Sales and Business Development Manager of Pan Bright Travel Services during the press conference recently
 

As one of the representatives from Royal Brunei Airlines said, it’s a better deal than the normal packages as you can save almost $100. It’s a real steal to get BND 388 for a 3 Days 2 Nights with accommodation stay, return economy airfare on RB, daily breakfast, return airport transfer and even private transfers to Bukit Jalil Stadium. All these package is only applicable from Pan Bright Travel Service and it’s called the “3 Days 2 Nights Kuala Lumpur SEA Games package”.

Another incentive is that Pan Bright Travel Service is giving BND 20 discount for first 20 pax who book this package.

The hotels that are packaged in the deal are Star Points Hotel Kuala Lumpur (3 star hotel with 7.7 rating in booking.com) and Corus Hotel Kuala Lumpur (4 star hotel with 8.0 rating). I’ve stayed at Corus Hotel before I kinda like it.

The selling period is effective from today till 31st July 2017 for travel from 15th August to 30th August 2017. For bookings, you can contact Pan Bright Travel Services at 224 0980, 334 1154 and 322 0078 for their package.

A pretty good deal indeed
 

Launching the event was His Excellency Datuk Ghulam Jelani bin Khanizaman, High Commissioner of Malaysia to Brunei Darussalam. Also present were Hj Ibrahim Seddiqi bin Talib, Director of Tourism Malaysia (Brunei), Mr. Brett McDougall, Executive General Manager – Sales and Marketing, Royal Brunei Airlines and Ms. Nur Khadijah, Sales and Business Development Manager of Pan Bright Travel Services. The event was also witnessed by local coaches, athletes and representatives from the Ministry of Youth, Culture and Sports.

Pan Bright Travel Service has a very good track record in providing quality and cost effective travel services to their clients in Brunei Darussalam. It’s no surprise that they received the award from Royal Brunei Airlines recently for being the “Top Selling Kuala Lumpur destination” during the 12th Belait Travel Fair and Brunei Travel Fair (2016). Did you know that they are also one of the nominees under the Best Foreign Tour Operator (Southeast Asia) for Brunei Darussalam category at the 19th Malaysia Tourism Awards 2014/2015?

SEA games 2017 will again be the highlight for 2017 and this package is a good incentive for Bruneians to fly over to KL and also enjoy the SEA Games experience in Kuala Lumpur. Will I travel to KL for the SEA Games? We shall wait and see.

So do call Pan Bright Travel Services at 224 0980, 334 1154 and 322 0078 for their packages.
