KUANTAN: The Pahang government will continue to promote tourism products in Kuala Tahan and Kuala Tembeling, which are the entry points to Taman Negara, said state Tourism, Environment, Plantation and Biotechnology Committee chairman Datuk Seri Mohd Sharkar Shamsuddin.

He said the move was taken because tourism activities in the two areas were badly affected by the massive floods in 2014.

He said among the worst affected were homestays, resorts and motels around Kuala Tahan and Kuala Tembeling, hence priority for repair and upgrading works should be at these places.

“For long-term planning, the state government will also collaborate with travel agents, boat operators at the national park, as well as the media to promote the two areas,” he said.

Mohd Sharkar said this in reply to Mohd Zakhwan Ahmad Badarddin (Tahan-PAS) who wanted to know the state government’s plans to revive Kuala Tembeling as a tourism hub at the state assembly sitting. – Bernama
