Sarawak gives tourists good value for money

MIRI: Visitors to Sarawak get good value for money spent in the state as costs here are some of the lowest in Malaysia.

Speaking at a welcoming dinner for participants and officials of the 5th Borneo International Yachting Challenge (BIYC) on Tuesday night, Deputy Minister of Urban Development and Tourism Hamden Ahmad explained that visitors to the state get a good deal as Sarawak has a lot to offer in terms of culture, adventure and nature.

He said most items and services required by visitors in Sarawak such as accommodation, food and transportation are also reasonably affordable.

“You, like other tourists and visitors to Miri and Sarawak are always welcome to experience the natural wonders, diversity in culture and tradition in Sarawak,” said Hamden citing marine life at Belais Reef and Luconia Shoals as some of Miri’s many attractions.

“The rare, beautiful and many species of flora and fauna found at Loagan Bunut National Park, and the world renowned Niah Caves and Gunung Mulu National Park await nature lovers and adventurers from abroad and locally. So make an effort to stay longer in Sarawak to enable you to savour all these.”
