Its director, Mohamad Rosli Ramani, 25, said his involvement in the
tourism industry came about when he saw the potential of such tourism products
found in Labuan.
"These people are not only locals but also from outside
of the island who have been to at least four attractive islands for various
water sports, recreational diving and snorkelling.
"We have Rusukan Kecil
and Rusukan Besar Islands for recreational diving, snorkelling and witnessing
the turtle hatching and being released, and we have Papan Island for various

well and gain competitive advantages, players in the travel industry were
always looking for the newest and greatest ways to reach their buyer persona
and tailor their offering to their target audience.
When planning travel, he
said tourists tended to look for companies with a social media presence on
established social media networks, and they are also interested in big brand
names and prestige, alongside a online mobile-optimised booking experience.
said 'staycations' had been a powerful trend in the last two three years, with
many travellers having trended in the direction of sticking around locally to
enjoy their vacation time. "This has been great news for local tour and
activity providers and their communities as more people are looking to boost
their local economies with trips close to home," said Rosli and Faiz. They
were optimistic the island's tourism industry could be developed further with
significant roles played by the tourism players.
