Oppsss…SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป has forgot ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ to have a photo ๐Ÿ“ธ with Uncle Kennyย ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผย during this trip

He ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ has generously shared an article โœ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ“œwrote by him & SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป would like to share ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ“ it here, inclusion of her favourite โค๏ธ emojisss & capturesss ๐Ÿ“ธ in between ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜

๐Ÿค—ย ~ Sharing is caring as always ~~ ๐Ÿค—

Taman Negara๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ, situated in the heart โค๏ธof Pahang, Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ , is 1๏ธโƒฃ of the oldest rainforest ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ in the world ๐Ÿ—บ๐ŸŒ at 130 million years old

Within it, lays a geographical ๐ŸŒ wonder of permanently untouched & protected habitat for flora ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒบ & fauna ๐Ÿฆ“๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ˜ to florish to all its glory

As such, this a perfect ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป platform for the development of a hub towards the education of conservation of the ecology surrounding Taman Negara & rainforests in general ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ

We strongly believe that Taman Negara ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ has the potential to be a global ๐Ÿ—บ๐ŸŒ platform for the both Eco & Adventure education tourism centre ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

My ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ humble beginnings of 30 plus years specialising in tourism at Taman Negara ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ & the handling of some 1๏ธโƒฃ million over tourists ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ since day 1๏ธโƒฃ, has led me ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ to the formation of 2๏ธโƒฃ travel agencies (NKS & Han Travel) & a resort ๐Ÿก๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿก with the biggest room capacity at Kuala Tahan. We average 30k tourists ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ a year & 90% of them are from Europe ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ—บ

It has come to a time, where I ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ feel personally, having been in this trade for 30 odd years, it is time to educate the younger generation ๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿป๐Ÿง’๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿป & anyone from all walks of life willing to learn about the conservation ๐Ÿ’š of the ecology & its surroundings

We at Han Travel, have formed 2๏ธโƒฃ new ๐Ÿ†• arms in our corporation to execute the upcoming programs called Eco Adventure Tourism ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š

This will be encased with the educational arm named the Eco Educational Tourism, headed by Mr Frank Kee & his team ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ & in support ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป with the activities provided by the Adventure Management Tourism headed by Mr Kevin Bateman & his team ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Just 1๏ธโƒฃ of our examples for the educational program is the re-planting of bamboo ๐ŸŽ‹๐ŸŽor specific trees ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ by badly eroded areas in the effort to prevent further damage to the riversides ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ง

This is just an example of what we would provide as a CSR initiative ๐Ÿ˜€

We shall be working closely with the Sultan Ahmad Environmental foundation ๐Ÿ’š in its efforts, participate & uphold its values ๐Ÿ˜Š

Alas, with our planning & preparation, we now realise that we face a huge stumbling block ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜“ We do not a permanent site to conduct our activities in a conducive & safe manner ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Also, current rules & regulations by the government sectors should be looked at & revised to enable operators like us ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ฌ to introduce & execute the mutually beneficial conservational education programs ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š

In the extended period, the efforts will benefit not just the environment ๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿ’š but also creating employment opportunity to the locals within its surroundings ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ

I๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผnow urge, the Pahang state Government, Ministry of Tourism & other related government agencies to assist us in paving the way into this journey with us ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿค๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

Other Asian countries are already promoting their countrysโ€™ tagline, for example;-

  • Thailand ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ญ ~ Culture tourism
  • Indonesia ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฉ ~ Art tourism
  • Philippines ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ญ ~ Diving tourism
  • Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ ~ Eco & Adventure tourism

All told, our Ministry of Tourism Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ have also set their vision ๐Ÿ’ญ on Eco Tourism ๐Ÿ’š with its plans & implementation of its program from 2025 & continued focusing till 2050

Han Travel Sdn Bhd, is now at the final phases of the planning & is almost ready to launch our initial program on Eco & Adventure Tourism ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š The launch pad & operations will be at the Han Rainforest Resort, Kuala Tahan ๐Ÿก๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿก

We hope our efforts will promote & drive the state of Pahang to be model state & also the centre of Ecological ๐Ÿ’š Awareness & the centre for the Education on Rainforest Preservation ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ

Once again, I ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ believe that our vision is in line with the Pahang State governmentโ€™s. Developing a fully functioning centre where the education of the ecology ๐Ÿ’š can spread to all walks of life through an experiential process where participants ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ can touch, feel, smell, see and hear the importance of the ecology ๐Ÿ’šaround us & the threats to its and our existence ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜

Thank you ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

After breakfast, attended the launch of the new criterias for Classification & Rating Criteria Tourist Accommodation Premises in Malaysia ๐Ÿค—

SiennyLovesDrawing has learnt much more about the hotel ratings scheme, would be helpful in her future hotel review sharing then ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

It was officiated by the Minister of Tourism & Culture Malaysia, ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผYB Dato ‘Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz (YB) & attended by the senior officials of MOTAC, the Pahang State Government agencies & industry practitioners in the hospitality & tourism industry๐Ÿ™‚

At the ceremony, YB has launched 5 5๏ธโƒฃnew classification criteria of,

  • City Hotel
  • Highlands Hotel
  • Resort (Island / Coast / lake / river)
  • Innovative Hotel
  • Boutique Hotel

which all effective from 1st June 2017

“These criteria also give attention to the elements of creativity & innovation, green ๐Ÿ’šelements, local cultural & sustainable tourism without compromising on standards, security & services offered. Innovative new concept hotel surely will attract young people in the hospitality industry ” said YB ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผduring the launch

The Malaysiaโ€™s hotel star โญ๏ธ classification scheme have been implemented since 1996 & followed with the Orchids Standard in 1999. These criteria apply to all types of property regardless of location, suitability, facilities & position of the hotel. This revision of the criteria is implemented to align with the rapid changes & needs.

With this new rating criteria, operators of tourist accommodation premises will also have an alternative in providing services, facilities & infrastructure as well as better quality services to tourists ๐Ÿค—
