1124. 🇲🇾🇨🇦 Tourism In Malaysia and Canada's 2018 Programme.

  🇲🇾 Pos Malaysia issued a set of 6 stamps on 21 November 2017 on the subject of Tourist destinations in Malaysia, specifically in Perak, Terengganu and Pahang. Each state has a se-tenant pair dedicated to it and a number of tourist sights are depicted on the stamps as well as the state flags. The designs are interesting but probably over-complicated. Rating:- ***.
