Published on : Monday, June 24, 2019

There are more than one million tourists visited in Malaysian state Sabah from January to May this year, with 662,560 of them being domestic & local tourists and 371,311 million foreigners who arrived on flights via the Kota Kinabalu International Airport.

 

 

The Deputy Chief Minister of Sabah Datuk Christina Liew said that the state government had set a target for four million tourist arrivals this year, compared to 3.8 million last year.

 

 

Liew, who is also state tourism, culture and environment minister, said the government believed the target was achievable with the cooperation of all industry players. In the tourism industry in Sabah, the support of Matta (Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents) members is very important to the government’s efforts to develop the tourism industry, she said during her speech at the Matta Sabah Chapter Aidilfitri celebration here last night.

 

 

 

 

 

She said the government of Sabah was also very sensitive to the various issues that need to be addressed, such as congestion problems in nearby islands, hygiene issues, the issue of unregistered tour operators, threats to endangered animal species, and poor customer service.

 

 

Sabah is filled with jungles and the mountain peaks. Around 55 percent of Sabah is forest, and protected areas such as the Maliau Basin and the Danum Valley Conservation Area are more accessible than ever.
