KUALA TERENGGANU: The Culture, Arts and Tourism Ministry will discuss with tour operators taking part in the ministry’s Student Tourism Programme about gauging whether parents think the package is too expensive. 

Ministry secretary-general Datuk Mohd Azmi Razak urged the public to give their feedback to the ministry. 

“Although we have no say on the prices fixed by operators, we can ask them to be more reasonable,” he said yesterday after launching the state-level Student Tourism Programme at the Terengganu Trade Centre. 

He was commenting on the “RM198 onwards” tour package for three days and two nights to Pulau Redang for students which includes boat transfer, meals, camping, snorkelling and jungle-trekking. 

The details, contained in the leaflets published by Tourism Malaysia, Terengganu Tourism Action Council and the state Malaysian Association for Tour and Travel Agents, were distributed to guests after the launch. 

Mohd Azmi hoped the price of the tour package could be reduced. 

He urged tour operators to come up with attractive packages to help the Government promote domestic tourism among the younger generation. 

“We want to inculcate a new mindset among children to save money for tourism as has been done in Western countries,” he said.
