All national parks in Johor to reopen on Nov 1

JOHOR BARU: All parks under Johor National Parks will reopen for visitors on Nov 1 after closing due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Johor National Parks Corporation (PTNJ) director Hanis Musalman Salehan said the national parks in the state, namely Endau-Rompin Peta, Endau-Rompin Selai, Gunung Ledang and Tanjung Piai, had always been drawn in both domestic and international tourists.

"We are now ready to welcome visitors into national parks after getting approval to restart operations on Nov 1," he said here on Thursday (Oct 21).

He added that the reopening was in line with the approval stipulated under the guidelines set by the National Security Council (NSC).

Hanis Musalman said that Johor national parks were famous eco-tourism destinations and visitors would be captivated by its rich flora and fauna.

However, he said that the Pulau Kukup national park would only open for fishing and boating activities.

Hanis Musalman reminded the public that they must adhere to the standard operating procedures (SOP) to curb the spread of Covid-19 such as to be fully vaccinated and to always wear face masks.

"Those who have completed their vaccination will be allowed to bring their children ages 18 years and below for any activities by following the strict SOP," he said.
