The Sarawak Tourism Board (STB) has launched a brand new campaign to boost tourism in the state.

The “Sia Sitok Sarawak” campaign will allow locals and non-Sarawakians residing in the state with work permits to experience and enjoy the beauty of Sarawak at discounts of up to 50%.

The name of the campaign translates to mean “here and there in Sarawak”.

STB chief executive officer Sharzede Datu Haji Salleh Askor said the campaign is a great opportunity for locals to visit places they have not been to before, and to also become future ambassadors for Sarawak’s tourism.

“The campaign is also part of the 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, ” she said.

Sharzede stressed that STB is continuously mindful of the Covid-19 situation.

“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 explained.

The campaign features over 30 attractions, tours and activities in Kuching, Sibu, Mukah, Bintulu, Miri and Mulu which includes day trips and non-overnight tours as well as full board multiple day trips with accommodation and meals.

Some enticing packages and activities include dolphin cruises at Santubong, bird watching at Kubah National Park, fun dive day trip at Satang Island and golfing at Eastwood Golf Club Miri and caving at Silabur.
