Travel And Tour World: How successful is the NTFF 2016?

 

Terrence Ruluked: I think the NTFF 2016 event is very successful in terms of promoting the tourist destinations in Bangladesh. Normally, people do not know where they are, when they visit a new destination. This NTFF event shows the different destinations of this country.

 

Travel And Tour World: How is Palau similar to Bangladesh in terms of tourism?

 

Terrence Ruluked: Yes, there are certainly a few similarities between the two countries. Both Bangladesh and Palau have beautiful beaches. And, the people here in Bangladesh are very nice and welcoming. Also, the country has a diverse culture like Palau. However, unlike Bangladesh, the beaches in Palau are smaller and surround our archipelago of islands. Bangladesh has amazing beaches, especially Cox’s Bazar and it is really long.

 

Travel And Tour World: What makes Palau attractive in the Asia-Pacific region?

 

Terrence Ruluked: I think Palau is very attractive and it is a beautiful place with beautiful beaches clean ocean and the underwater ambiance is amazing.

 

Travel And Tour World: Can you comment on the sustainable tourism practices in Palau?

Terrence Ruluked: Right now, the government of Palau has passed a new law that seeks to strike a perfect balance between our natural environment and the impact of tourists. We are trying to promote environment-friendly tourism practices and ensuring that locals are more involved with tourists.

 

Travel And Tour World: What are your plans of tourism development in the next five years?

 

Terrence Ruluked: We already have a master plan for five years and that is to balance the number of tourists entering our country so that its environmental impact is reduced.
