KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia is a hot-bed for the world’s rarest iconic natural attractions and serves as a tourist magnet. The country has attractive locations with vast potential for development as eco-tourism icons, according to a development planning expert.
Universiti Teknologi Malaysia centre for innovative planning and development director Prof Amran Hamzah said Malaysia’s natural attractions would lure tourist arrivals to the country. Tourists will be spellbound by the unique flora and fauna, clean beaches, exotic marine life, ancient rainforests and the world’s biggest caves.
Currently, Amran said Sabah and Sarawak were the country’s largest contributors to the eco-tourism industry compared with Peninsular Malaysia, as they had the world’s rarest iconic attractions.
For example, he said the Mulu National Park in Sarawak, and Mount Kinabalu and Sipadan Island in Sabah were deemed among the world’s top five locations for scuba diving activities. — Bernama
