AIESEC INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS POST-STUDY TOUR 2009—LANGKAWI GEOPARK Malaysia Truly Asia had finally found the chance to share its vibrant and diverse cultures with the rest of the world when AIE- SEC International Congress landed its mark this year with the theme of “EMPOWERING LEADERS ACROSS CULTURES” in the Palace of the Golden Horses, undoubtedly in Malaysia Truly Asia. In conjunction with AIESEC International Congress 2009 in Malaysia, AIESEC in Universiti Utara Malaysia had, after immeasur- able effort by the team from the previous term in its bidding process, acquired the chance to host one of the most exquisite special events of AIESEC International Congress 2009, none other than the AIESEC International Congress Post-Study Tour 2009. The event (AIESEC International Congress Post-Study Tour 2009) landed its mark in the islands of legend, LANGKAWI GEOPARK on the 1st-3rd of Septem- ber 2009. A total of 73 delegates from AIESEC International Congress 2009 signed up to be a part of the event, with different origins ranging from around the globe. 6 Organizing Committees, together with 3 volunteers realized the event with immense success, making it one of the best events ever to happen in AIESEC International Congress 2009. Bearing the theme of “BACK TO THE NATURE”, the post-study tour aims to share the rich cultures of the locals as well as the geographical attractions with the international guests as part of the efforts to heighten the awareness of the tourism industry in Malaysia. This event also aspires to enhance the awareness of young generations of today to the heritage left behind by our founding fathers and ancestors. As such, the programs of the post-study tour had been designed in such a way that adventure, heritage and pleasure blend are blended together in each and every of the program. Tourist hotspots such as the Eagle Square, Mahsuri Mausoleum and the LANGKAWI Craft Complex that were a part of the tour advocated such an intense essence of heritage to our international guests, leaving them in admiration towards the once traditional world of Malay- sia. The fun and adventurous elements of the tour are embedded in program such as island hopping and beach visits, in which the delegates experienced the joy of back to the nature to no extend. There were few obstacles along the way, but it was no trouble for the organizing committees who had dedi- cated themselves to ensuring the best experience ever for the delegates, even if there is an extra mile to be taken. Nevertheless, much gratitude would like to be paid in return of the continuous support by some of the organizations in LANGKAWI GEOPARK, namely LANGKAWI Development Authority (LADA), LANGKAWI Wildlife Park, Underwater World LANGKAWI, ASEANIA Resorts LANGKAWI, TSG Shopping Pa- rade in LANGKAWI, Winduri Travel & Tours and Tourism Kedah. Special thanks to the various sponsors of the event for your kind contributions and pa- tience. Congratulations once again to the organizing team of AIESEC International Congress Post-Study Tour 2009! We work hard and we play hard, because we are AIESECers!
