Tourism site needs clearer signs to attract visitors

THE fading signboard bearing the name of the popular Gua Tempurung in Jalan Ipoh-Gopeng will be re-placed, as part of preparations leading up to Visit Perak Year 2012 (VPY 2012).

Perak Tourism Committee chairman Datuk Hamidah Osman said the state government had given the Kampar Municipal Council (MPKpr) RM30,000 to put up a new signboard and to work on beautifying several tourist spots in the vicinity.

“The council is to put up bunting and intensify efforts to beautify certain areas to make the place more welcoming to visitors.

“The two black pillars along the road leading to Gua Tempurung should be replaced or at least made to look brighter,” she said, suggesting that MPKpr used designs depicting the cave.

“It should be a design that will build up one’s excitement as they make their way to the cave,” she added.

The state government, Hamidah said, would allocate another RM10,000 to refurbish the cafeteria at Gua Tempurung to make it more presentable.

“The cafeteria will be repainted while the chairs and tables there will be replaced with new ones,” she said.

On VPY 2012, Hamidah said 17 promotional giant billboards had been erected throughout the country, namely in Sabah, Terengganu and Penang.
