KUCHING: Sarawak Road Trip from Kuching to Gedong, the first of its kind hopes to encourage more visitors to travel using their own vehicles.

Minister of Tourism, Creative Industry and Performing Arts, Datuk Seri Abdul Rahman Hamzah said that this is the first time a programme is conducted where visitors and tourists will be able to bring their own vehicles to commute to popular tourist destinations.

“There is also a Sarawak Road Trip Guide book to guide tourists whether in Sarawak or outside Sarawak to visit these tourist attraction sites.

“These tourist attraction sites are within the city area and the longest destination trip close to the city would take about two hours at most,” he said.

He was speaking to the reporters after officiating the Sarawak Road Trip (Kuching to Gedong) launching ceremony at Square Tower, Kuching Waterfront earlier this morning (December 3).

Explaining further, he hoped that more tourist products such as these can enable more tourists and visitors the convenience to travel and explore Sarawak.

“With this product (Sarawak Road Trip and Sarawak Road Trip Guide), it could give visitors and tourists alike the freedom to travel according to their own time and interest,” he said.

Meanwhile, Abdul Karim pointed out that the State government is working hard to improve internet connectivity to ensure organising a Sarawak Road Trip such as this would help to look for specific tourism interests.

“In areas such as Kuching, Samarahan and Bau, (internet) connectivity is still very good but if you go slightly deeper.

“If the product is launched in Sibu, and to Kapit, along the way they want to stop by some longhouses but the connectivity is not there and they wouldn’t be able to access the required information,” he said.

Therefore, he stressed that for this kind of tourism product to flourish, we must have good connectivity

“I do hope that those responsible for getting internet connectivity set up do their part and assist the tourism industry,” he added.
