Create attractive tour packages to promote Mulu National Park

CREATING attractive and appealing tour packages should be the way to promote Mulu National Park as a tourist destination in the state.

This would let tourists experience a life time journey that begins from Miri City en-route to Lambir National Park and various small towns like Long Lama and Beluru Bazaar and a few Orang Ulu villages while enjoying the greeneries and eventually a short boat ride from Long Iman to Mulu National Park, suggested Telang Usan assemblyman Dennis Ngau.

He said the opening of Mulu National Park had brought positive changes to the life of many people in the area.

“I am of the opinion that this natural beauty will continue to provide source of income to the people and state,” he said in his speech to support State Budget 2017 in the State Legislative Assembly here yesterday.

“Every effort should be taken to ensure more locals continue benefiting from this natural beauty – God’s gift and an asset to the state and nation,” he added.

He further said Mulu National Park is world famous and definitely a gold mine “if we can take care of it and make use of its true potential”.

“The beauty and attraction of this park could be used to expand our local communities’ participation in tourism industry. But as of now, local participation is limited due to the current access to the Park which is mostly by air,” he pointed out.
