KUCHING: Sarawak Tourism Ministry is looking into the feasibility of improving accessibility to Mulu where Mulu National Park, a Unesco World Heritage, site is nestled.
Its Assistant Minister Datuk Lee Khim Shim said in this regard, the state government had in mind the existing logging road from Long Bedian-Long Terawan-Long Iman and two-hour boat ride to Mulu National Park headquarters.
He said promotion of the park, being a prime state tourism product, was being carried out constantly.
“Other short, medium and long term strategies to promote Mulu National Park include a tactical campaign to put Miri as one of the preferred destinations to visit.
“The component of the tactical campaign is by positioning Miri and Mulu National Park as a twin destination,” he said when answering a question from Sebastian Ting Chiew Yew (BN-Piasau) at the State Legislative Assembly here today.
