Rewards for Sarawak tour operators

KUCHING: The Sarawak Tourism Board will reward tour operators which bring in big groups of tourists to the state from next year.

State Tourism and Urban Development Minister Datuk Michael Manyin said that operators which brought in groups of at least 50 people in a single arrival would be entitled incentives of their choice from the board.

“The incentives will be given in kind, such as the provision of traditional airport/port welcomes, cultural performances, welcome gifts or free entrance to tourism attractions, whichever the operators prefer.
