Tasik Kenyir Expects 500,000 Visitors During VMY 2014
TASIK KENYIR, Dec 29 (Bernama) -- The Kenyir Lake Development Authority director Mokhtar Che Ali has expressed confidence that the number of tourist arrivals to Tasik Kenyir will reach 500,000 during the Visit Malaysia Year (VMY) 2014.

"I expect the number of tourist arrivals will increase to 500,000 (2014) and will further increase to a million a year once the development project in Tasik Kenyir, including the free-trade zone, is completed," he told reporters after accompanying Deputy Communication and Multimedia Minister Datuk Jailani Johari, who visited the man-made lake here Sunday.

Mokhtar said various activities had also been lined up for next year, with the biggest event being the month-long Tasik Kenyir Festival. Among the attractions in Tasik Kenyir are Pulau Herba (Herbal Island), Bird Park, Orchid Garden and Kelah Sanctuary in Sungai Petang, he said.

Mokhtar also said the newly upgraded telecommunication infrastructure in Tasik Kenyir would also provide comfort to the visitors. "Prior to this, the telecommunication coverage here is quite limited, but with the construction of three new telecommunication towers, I'm sure users, especially tourists, will be more satisfied," he added.
