Suitable approach to bring tourists to Tawau

TAWAU: A suitable approach will be taken to bring more tourists, especially from China, to this district, said State Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Christina Liew (pic).

According to her, who is also the Tawau MP, the matter has become her priority in an effort to further boost the economy in the district for the benefit of its population.

“I will indeed work harder to ensure more tourists, especially from China, visit the east coast area (of Sabah) to spend one or two nights in Tawau,” she said at the Chinese New Year celebration of Tawau constituency, here, Sunday night.


Hence, she added tourism agencies and tour operators of the State were urged to play a role and work together in order to realise this wish.

According to her, this district has interesting tourist attractions, handicraft and cultural products and a wide selection of seafood.

Speaking on the event, Liew said the Chinese New Year that was celebrated across the country is among the events that could help to unite the nation of different races and religions.

“Malaysia, in particular Sabah, has many celebrations according to local beliefs and celebrated together, which also proves that we live in harmony,” she added. – Bernama
