JOHOR BARU: Johor will tailor its education tourism package to get more student groups to visit the state in line with its Visit Johor Year 2003. 

Johor Tourism Action Council general manager Datuk Abd Karim Hassan said under the student tourism programme, they would be offered packages in eco and agro-tourism, home-stay programmes, student exchanges and recreational activities. 

“Seven agents here will help them, cover basic needs like transportation, lodging, insurance coverage and meals. 

“Previously, teachers took their own initiative to arrange for holiday programmes during the school holidays,'' he said at a student tourism programme seminar (3P).

Abdul Karim said under the council's student holiday programme, all matters pertaining to visits to tourist spots or any place of interest would be taken care of by the tour agents. 

He said the home stay programme would enable the students to enjoy kampung-style living, such as staying in wooden houses and visiting fruit orchards.
