Annah Rais hot spring to be upgraded

KUCHING: The Padawan Municipal Council (MPP) is going to turn the Annah Rais hot spring area into a camp site through its community based eco-tourism (CBET) programme.

MPP chairman Lo Khere Chiang said this was to further develop the area as a popular tourist destination since the place had gained greater popularity since the completion of the upgrading on the Annah Rais hot spring recently.

“We started the upgrading work since middle of last year and it was completed sometime last November and we have handed it back to the villagers to run,” he said at a press conference after chairing the full council meeting yesterday.

He also disclosed that with the proper facilities, the hot spring is now getting more popular where around 200 visitors go there every weekend.

Fees charged per-entry by the villagers were RM3 for adults, children (RM2) and RM1 for primary school pupils.

“All the money collected will go to the group of people who own the area,” he said.
