TELAGA AIR (KUCHING) -- Kampung Telaga Air, located some 45 km from Kuching, is set to be a hub for angling and maritime activities with the completion of the RM5.0 million esplanade.
State Legislative Assembly Member for Pantai Damai, Dr Abdul Rahman Junaidi, said Telaga Air is an ideal location for angling and maritime sports as it is located near the sea apart from being in the vicinity of a fishing village.
"We are confident that this facility (expected to be completed by the end of 2008) will provide the opportunity for local folks to get more income as they can provide boats for hire to tourists," he told Bernama here recently.
Dr Abdul Rahman said so far Kuching and its fringes have neither fishing port or jetty suitable for maritime and angling activities, unlike that available in Miri or other major towns in Sabah and the Peninsula.
With the completion of the esplanade at Telaga Air, enthusiasts of maritime sports like angling, scuba-diving and sailing would have a hub in south Sarawak.
