Homestay at Kota Klias next year

Beaufort: Kg Kota Klias will become a hive of activity next year when enterprising residents start a homestay service in the village.

It was the Minister of Community Development and Consumer Affairs, Datuk Azizah Mohd Dun, who motivated the people to venture into the tourism industry.

She said this is a good opportunity for the village folks to raise their families' income.

"After all, Kota Klias is famous for its proboscis monkey and fireflies.

With homestay facilities, more tourists will be drawn to this village to live here and enjoy our local products such as food and traditional instruments.

"You need to think outside the box if you wish to succeed in life. Trying out homestay business is a chance to get out of the shackles of poverty," she told the community when officiating at the People-Friendly Programme here, recently.

On the same day, Azizah, who is Klias Assemblywoman, also launched the People-Friendly Programme and Family Well-being Education Class (PKK) at Kg Pintas Kubu.

The people were urged to revive their agricultural activity, especially orange cultivation.
