STB Chief Executive Officer Pn Sharzede Datu Haji Salleh Askor said, “the Sia Sitok Sarawak (or Here and There in Sarawak) is a great opportunity for Sarawakians to visit places they have not been to before, and to also become future ambassadors for Sarawak tourism. The campaign is also part of the Sarawak Tourism stimulus measure to give a boost to the local tourism industry and a good way of sustaining and maintaining the tourism eco-system for the industry players – tour and park guides, drivers, operators and restaurants during these challenging times.”
“In carrying out this campaign, we are continuously mindful of the COVID-19 situation. As such, we will first focus on destinations in cured areas and green zones, whilst ensuring stringent SOP’s and regular enforcements are in place to ensure full compliance from tour operators and industry players,” she added.
The Sia Sitok Sarawak Campaign which is open for booking from now until October 15th, 2020 is held in collaboration with the Sarawak Tourism Federation (STF). STF is providing a booking platform and payment gateway for the campaign.
The campaign will give privilege to front liners including hospital workers, foreign doctors and nurses, PDRM, RELA, Army, APMM, BOMBA, SDMC staff and others who were part of the COVID-19 relief efforts as an appreciation for their hard work and dedication to help bring the number of cases down. It also aims to provide a much needed break for them to travel and discover the beauty of Sarawak.
