10 Best Value Deals To Hunt Down This September's Matta Fair

The Matta Fair is back and it is one of the biggest travel events in Malaysia, where we all come together to score ourselves the best travel deals. Malaysians are known to swiftly book their airplane tickets to secure a guaranteed chance to be able to go on vacation during the upcoming festive season.

However, in the rush to secure cheap flights, many forget to think of the availability of accommodations and often find themselves scrambling to secure a hotel when the trip is nigh, while others might find it an exorbitant expense to pay for accommodation and flights at the same time.

However, this need not be the case, as sometimes, booking an accommodation alongside flight tickets winds up being cheaper. That is one thing that you can expect at the upcoming Matta Fair x AirAsiaGo promotion in September.
