Unique tourism package for Visit Sibu Year 2016

SIBU: Sibu Municipal Council is working on the major events that may be included in the Visit Sibu Year 2016 programme.

Council deputy chairman Dato Andrew Wong said it hoped to finalise them by the end of this year.

He said Sibu has much to offer, but it was important to offer tourists something unique which they could not obtain elsewhere.

Meanwhile, Sibu Divisional Tourism Task Group (DTTG) chairman Sim Kok Kee noted that current events attracted mostly local tourists.

“International tourists are still dependent on connectivity, especially air connectivity,” Sim, who is Sibu Resident, said.

He considered the 1Malaysia Food Fair one of the better tourism events that pulled in sizeable crowds.

The annual 1Malaysia Food Fair is hosted by the Federation of Hawkers of Sibu and Meradong, Sibu Central Market Hawkers Association and Sibu Petty Traders Association. It is supported by Sibu Municipal Council.
