KUCHING, Saturday – Three officials from Danang Department of Tourism, Vietnam led by Truong Thi Hong Hanh, Deputy Director of Danang Department of Tourism were in Kuching from August 15 – 19, 2017. Accompanying the Deputy Director are Phan Minh Hai, Deputy Manager of Planning & Development Division and Nguyen Duc Vu, Deputy Director of Son Tra Peninsula Management Board.
The visit is to study the ecotourism, the management of our national parks in Sarawak and the conservation in the region. Danang Tourism is planning to set-up something similar to Bako National Park.
They visited the Park earlier to learn about the preservation and maintenance. Danang Tourism was particularly impressed with the use of woods as the staircase instead of using cement. Besides that, the existence of the Parks is giving job opportunities to the local community.
They also visited the Semenggoh Wildlife Centre early of the week and were briefed by Sarawak Forestry Corporation prior to the visit.
