In a Tik Tok video, Syed Saddiq showed off and posed with painted murals in Muar in a bid to boost local tourism.
The short 14-second video was also uploaded to his Twitter, which showed him walking past fantastic murals, such as dancing girls and a giant lizard, and even under an alleyway of rainbow umbrellas.
Other Muar locals started posting their favourite murals that weren’t shown in Syed Saddiq’s video.

Many Malaysians showed support and awe at Muar’s best kept secrets, but other netizens cheekily complained that more tourists would mean more jam for the locals.

Yet everyone agreed that Syed Saddiq’s quick video did a great job at promoting his constituency.

That’s why we need more young ministers like him. His ideas boleh pakai. Kalau nak mengharapkan menteri umur yang patut pencen, bole fikir sendiri jauh mana Malaysia pergi— LALA (@lailahamdan92) August 12, 2020
Malaysia is brimming with beautiful places to visit, and Muar is definitely on the list. During this time, local tourism is more important than ever to keep the country afloat and economy moving, but remember to always stay safe and practice physical distancing!
