Labuan’s tourism products to be packaged with Sabah, Sarawak sectors

LABUAN: Labuan’s tourism products should be packaged with those of Sabah and Sarawak to help boost the island’s tourism sector in the long run.

Labuan MP Datuk Rozman Isli said the island which was strategically located within the two states’ tourism spots would help it (Labuan) to be accessible to both domestic and foreign visitors.

“If we look at Labuan’s location, it is close to the popular tourism spots of Klias Wetland, Beaufort, Sabah with its large proboscis monkey population, fireflies and the uniqueness of the Mulu Caves in Sarawak.

“Our existing tourism products are ideally packaged to be in line with those from Sabah and Sarawak,” he said.

He was speaking to reporters after flagging off the inaugural Bukit Kubong Extreme Sport Game and Bicycle Fun Ride at Kampung Lubok Temiang here yesterday.
