Malaysia's tourism industry has seen a rapid growth rate for the past years, and played a significant role in the development of the country's economy. 2007 is a special year for Malaysian tourism since it is named the "Visit Malaysia" year in celebration of 50 years of Independence. Information Technology has made remarkable contributions to the growth of tourism industry in Malaysia. Its efforts to promote tourism range from websites providing information to systems to service tourists. However, while countries with well-developed tourism industry like France and Hong Kong have developed comprehensive tour assistant packages for tourists, Malaysia is yet to do so. Thus, a comprehensive mobile tour package is needed for Malaysia. The objective of the project is to make an enhancement to the development of a well-designed tour assistant running on PDAs which makes use ofcurrent trends in mobile applications such as the adoption ofAI technique in scheduling. This time around the enhancement will be based on the recommendation from the previous project into consideration and still due to time and resource constraints, the project focuses on areas within and around Kuala Lumpur and targets on short-stay and transit tourists butwill expand as much as possible. Going through a thorough literature review and following the waterfall methodology, the project has successfully developed a comprehensive mobile tour assistant package including the back end and front end module. The project makes creative application of Genetic Algorithm, an AI technique in auto-scheduling. The author hopes that the package will be of high commercial value and contribute significantly to boosting Malaysian tourism.
