Sarawak tourism vroom with big bike packages

KUCHING: Newly-minted Minister of Sarawak Tourism and Culture Datuk Seri Nazri Abdul Aziz is supportive of the idea to organise more big-bikers packages in Borneo, especially in Sarawak.

Launching the 14th Borneo Island International Big Bike Festival (BIIBBF) here on Friday, he said Sarawak had the potential to be promoted as a big tourism destination for big bike owners.

He added that this was not impossible since there is availability of tourism products, including homestays, where participants could stay and experience local cultures at the same time.

“We already have many packages for the big bike community in the peninsula. My hope is that such packages can be extended to the island of Borneo.”

He said his ministry held the view that big bike packages add variety to the current range of tourism products being offered in the country, and would be able to attract international tourists who own big bikes.

Nazri added that his ministry was targeting tourist arrivals of 28.6 million this year, with an estimated revenue of RM65 billion.

Borneo Island Big Bikers (BIBB) president Datuk Dr Azman Samaon said the BIIBBF is hosted rotationally between various entities in Borneo.
