More entertainment outlets in Sabah to boost tourism industry

By Arman Gunsika

KOTA KINABALU - Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun said Sabah needs more entertainment outlets that cater to the niche market.

Sabah is a very popular tourist destination with increasing number of visitors each year and the quality of tourists is also getting better thus the need for more outlets that provide good and clean entertainment.

He said a company that invests RM3.8 million into an entertainment outlet is clearly targeting the niche market.

With the steady growth of tourist arrivals from well-to-do Asian nations such as China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea, Japan and not forgetting Brunei, these outlets will cater for their entertainment needs.

"The tourism industry would not only like to see increases in the number of visitors but also looking at improving the number of arrivals of quality tourists," he said at the opening of KK Box, a family entertainment outlet here.
