Tourism Malaysia Promotes Sabah’s Premier Events Through New Tour Packages
KOTA KINABALU, 13 June 2013 – Tourism Malaysia Sabah Office with the support of eight Sabah tour agents has developed its latest brochure – Sabah Premier Events ”Best Of Borneo” Tour Packages – in an effort to step up promotion of the state.
The brochure is specially created in conjunction with the state’s five spectacular premier events, namely Sabah Fest (03-04 May), Sabah Dragon Boat (15-16 June), Sunset Music Festival (28-29 June), Kokol International Paragliding Race (16-18 September) and Mt. Kinabalu International Climbathon (19-20 October).
The travel packages enable tourists to witness, experience, and learn more about the events. It is also in line with Tourism Malaysia’s efforts to continue offering various innovative and creative tourism products to tourists, besides having a truly diverse choice to cater to every interest and budget.
Fifteen tour packages that range from 2 Days 1 Night to 4 Days 3 Nights have been created, promising tourists a fun-filled time with lots of exciting activities.
In conjunction with the Sabah Dragon Boat Race at Likas Bay, Kota Kinabalu, the 3 Days 2 Nights ’Merlin’s Dragon’ package has been created. Through this tour package, tourists get to witness the race on either 15 or 16 June and enjoy a day trip to one of the islands in Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park. The tour package is also inclusive of a trip to Klias River, famed for its long-nosed proboscis monkeys.
Another interesting tour package created in June is the 2 Days 1 Night ’Romancing The Music at the Tip of Borneo’ package, in conjunction with the Sunset Music Festival. Be prepared to be mesmerised by the amazing talents of musicians as they bring you to the ultimate musical bliss whilst the red sun vanishes down below the horizon at the Tip of Borneo, Kudat. The new Minister of Tourism & Culture YB Dato’ Seri Mohamed Nazri bin Tan Sri Abdul Aziz is also expected to grace the event on 29 June 2013.
Those who are interested in any of the promoted events or would like to join the tour packages can get in touch with any of the eight tour agents for futher details. Tourism Malaysia Sabah will also be promoting the tour packages through websites, online social media, email blast and distribution of brochures at Tourism Malaysia state and overseas offices.
