Homestay In Penang A Hit With Tourists

BUKIT MERTAJAM, May 24 (Bernama) -- Who would have thought a 'green' village well isolated and far from the madding crowd, could be a hit with tourists.

Yet the quiet and calm surroundings of Kampung Sungai Semilang, about eight kilometres from Juru, coupled with the laid back lifestyle of its residents appear to draw both foreign and local visitors alike. Not less appealing is the array of seafood that the villagers have to offer to visitors.

Above it all, Kampung Sungai Semilang's environment-friendly status is unquestionable, having proven, by clinching the 'Cleanest Village Award' in Seberang Perai district, that it walked the talk in conservation.

Kampung Sungai Semilang's economic enlightenment began in 2006, when the village was selected as a homestay destination in Penang. Initially, 10 village homes were opened to visitors to let them have an insight of rural life in the northern state of Malaysia.

The federal government also built the necessary infrastructure to enhance the socioeconomic status of the residents; now after almost 10 years in operation, the village's homestay programme continues to rake in the money.

Sungai Semilang homestay coordinator Shamsuddin Ahmad, 64, said the programme had greatly helped the villagers in terms of improving their livelihood.

"The homestay programme is good because it not only generates income for the residents, it is also an opportunity for the locals to express their friendly, engaging nature," he told Bernama. He believes the ambiance and villagers' hospitality are exactly the niche that get visitors from countries such as Japan, South Korea, Germany, Indonesia, Singapore and Thailand, coming.

Even students of higher learning institutions are drawn to the village which boasts of dense forest and hills that are very conducive for a motivational camp, according to Shamsuddin.

He said the homestay rate per night is between RM60 and RM70, with a Malay tradition and culture familiarisation package thrown in, besides the opportunity to wear traditional attire for the enviable snapshot and a mock wedding ceremony to remember. "To value-add the tourism product, local handicrafts and snacks are also offered for sale," he said.

Meanwhile, Penang Regional Development Authority senior assistant manager (Economic Development), Mohd Salleh Hussain said the federal government had allocated RM500,000 to boost the homestay industry in the state. He said the funds were channeled through the Penang Bumiputera Development Council.

"There are 11 homestay destinations in Penang and it is the first time that the star rating was introduced in the programme, for cleanliness, safety, and service quality," he said.

He said this after a ceremony to present bicycles and support equipment to Sungai Semilang homestay operators, which was witnessed by Sungai Dua assemblyman Muhamad Yusoff Mohd Noor. Mohd Salleh said 10 operators received air conditioners, 20 bicycles and support equipment worth RM37,724.50.

Malaysian travel consultants lament sorry state of rate parity


While local tour operators have long complained that hotels offer them contract rates that are higher or similar to the dynamic rates offered to OTAs, the gap has widened in recent months to place traditional travel consultants at the losing end.

Arokia Das, senior manager at Luxury Tours Malaysia, shared: “A year ago, OTAs were offered rooms without breakfast at slightly higher rates. This year, they get rooms with breakfast at rates that are lower than what we get.”

The average contract rate for a four-star hotel ranges from RM220 (US$61) to RM250 for local travel consultants, but OTAs get rates as low as RM190, including breakfast, he said. “This is happening because hotels need business and there is an oversupply of rooms.” As a result, “local players lose out to OTAs who make money and are not even based here”, he opined.

Agreeing, Ally Bhoonee, executive director of World Avenues, said this is unfair to travel consultants who have invested in destination promotion. “It also makes the destination look ‘desperate’ to overseas outbound tour operators, who will take full advantage and squeeze the local travel consultants for further discounts.

“The industry – Malaysian Association of Hotels (MAH), Malaysian Association of Tour & Travel Agents and the Ministry of Tourism and Culture – must come together to find a solution to this issue,” he said.

However, MAH president, Cheah Swee Hee, told TTG Asia e-Daily the association does not regulate rates as “This is a free market”.

Asked whether there is a solution to rate parity, he said: “If travel consultants want good rates they must also be able to commit a certain number of room nights to the hotel.”

Meanwhile, Alex Lee, CEO of Ping Anchorage Travel & Tours, has found a way out of competing against OTAs by diversifying into the hospitality industry with the 22-room boutique hotel, Terrapuri Heritage Village, in Penarik, Terengganu.

He said: “We sell rooms to OTAs and traditional travel consultants, and we have also diversified to offer services to small inbound MICE and bespoke programmes to high-end clients.”

Jakub Kornfeil Claims Sixth Place As Zulfahmi Khairuddin Scores Points At Le Mans


Le Mans, France –Sunday 17th May
Circuit: Circuit des "24 Heures du Mans
Circuit Length: 4.2 km
The French Moto3 Grand Prix saw the DRIVE M7 SIC Racing Team achieve their best result of the season so far with Jakub Kornfeil claiming a hard fought 6th place, whilst Zulfahmi Khairuddin battled his way up to 14th position.
Zulfahmi Khairuddin had a hard task starting his race from thirtieth position on the grid. After taking evasive action to avoid a crash on lap one, the Malaysian rider got to work lapping at a similar pace to the leaders and working his way up the field. Battling to line the 24 year old passed the chequered flag in a respectable fourteenth place, scoring his first points of the season.
Teammate Jakub Kornfeil rode a smart race as he worked hard to maintain his pace and stay with the leading group throughout the 24 laps. Determined to collect vital points, the Czech rider crossed the line in sixth place, elevating his overall position in the Moto3 championship to fourteenth.
#63 Zulfahmi Khairuddin – P14
“The start of the race was good but going into the second corner a rider crashed in front of me and I had to avoid a bike which was in the middle of the track. Step by step I then tried to get my pace; the lap times were good and I was able to pass other riders. A few riders also crashed out but still this was a good race for me because we made another step forward. I felt good on the bike and was in twelfth place on the last lap. I tried to make a move on Guevara but he closed the door on me and then Loi also went past, so I lost a couple of positions, but still I finished in fourteenth, so I am very happy that finally we have some points. I would like to thank my team for today because they have done a great job and I’m very happy with the work they are doing. For Mugello we have to focus on being in a better place for qualifying because every time so far we have had a difficult job starting from the back, but with this result I feel much more confident and I believe we can achieve this and do even better at the next Grand Prix.”
#84 Jakub Kornfeil – P6
“I’m very happy with sixth position today and I’m happy for the team also because both Fahmi and I did quite a good job and we both arrived in the points, so this is very good. It is my best result of the year so far, even though I did not feel so great on the bike in the race. Everyone could see that I was not passing anybody and I was just trying to stay with the leading group and keep my position. My feeling on the bike was not so great so I was trying to be careful, stay calm and collect some points. I think sixth place was our maximum today and to be honest before the race I did not expect it, so I’m very pleased with this result. We got ten points today and Fahmi two so this a good result for the whole team. We are feeling positive and the most important thing is that we are making progress all the time.”
Johan Stigefelt – Team Manager
“Today is good day; it’s great to have both riders in the points. We were hoping for a good result with Jakub and he did just that. He made a good start and he rode really smart. He stayed calm and didn’t make any risky moves, which is something we talked about before the race, to learn and see what the front guys were doing. I think he did an excellent job and finishing sixth is fantastic. We have taken many points today which is very important for us. I want to thank Jakub for riding a smart race and all the crew from his side who have done another good job this weekend. I can see we are getting closer and closer to the front with him so this is very positive and we will continue to work on this. Also with Fahmi today he had a very good race. He made a strong start but then got pushed back after having to avoid a crash in front of him. He got some luck with other riders falling off but even so he was doing very good lap times that were not so far off from Jakub’s, so this is very positive. For the first time both riders have scored points this year, so I’m very happy about this. I want to thank the whole team for this result and also Dato Razlan and all at SIC for their continued support and faith in us.”
