KUCHING, 5 April 2021: Sarawak Tourism Board launched its ‘Sia Sitok Sarawak’ version 2.0 Intra-State Tourism Campaign late last week to continue boosting the state’s tourism efforts and build awareness.
The campaign runs until 31 October 2021 and focusing on giving Sarawakians, residents and foreigners with work permits residing in the state of Sarawak discounts of up to 50% on tour packages explore Kuching, Miri, Sibu, Mulu, Bintulu, Bario and Mukah.
The campaign offers the best available prices on day trips as well as full board multiple day trips, including meals and accommodation to encourage residents to rediscover the tourism assets of Sarawak state.
STB Chief Executive Office Puan Sharzede Datu Haji Salleh Askor said: “We are truly excited for version 2 of the ‘Sia Sitok Sarawak’, which is part of Sarawak Tourism Stimulus Measure to boost the local tourism industry, held in collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture Sarawak (MTAC), together with Sarawak Tourism Federation(STF).
“We believe that it will help to boost and sustain the Sarawak tourism industry and eco-system, amidst current challenges, as we saw a positive development such as vaccine roll-outs that will, of course, give confidence and optimism about travel and beyond. But we will ensure stringent SOP’s and regular enforcements are in place to ensure our tour operators and industry players are up for the game.”
