He đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œ has generously shared an article âœđŸ»đŸ“œwrote by him & SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» would like to share đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ“ it here, inclusion of her favourite ❀ emojisss & capturesss 📾 in between 😃😁

đŸ€—Â ~ Sharing is caring as always ~~ đŸ€—

Taman Negara🌳🌳, situated in the heart ❀of Pahang, Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ , is 1ïžâƒŁ of the oldest rainforest 🌳🌳 in the world đŸ—ș🌍 at 130 million years old

Within it, lays a geographical 🌍 wonder of permanently untouched & protected habitat for flora đŸŒłđŸŒ±đŸŒżđŸŒș & fauna 🩓🐆🐅🐘 to florish to all its glory

As such, this a perfect đŸ‘đŸ» platform for the development of a hub towards the education of conservation of the ecology surrounding Taman Negara & rainforests in general 🌳🌳

We strongly believe that Taman Negara 🌳🌳 has the potential to be a global đŸ—ș🌍 platform for the both Eco & Adventure education tourism centre 😃

My đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œ humble beginnings of 30 plus years specialising in tourism at Taman Negara 🌳🌳 & the handling of some 1ïžâƒŁ million over tourists đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Ź since day 1ïžâƒŁ, has led me đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œ to the formation of 2ïžâƒŁ travel agencies (NKS & Han Travel) & a resort 🏡🏘🏡 with the biggest room capacity at Kuala Tahan. We average 30k tourists đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘«đŸ‘­ a year & 90% of them are from Europe 🇬🇧 🇼đŸ‡č đŸ‡©đŸ‡Ș 🌍đŸ—ș

It has come to a time, where I đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œ feel personally, having been in this trade for 30 odd years, it is time to educate the younger generation đŸ‘§đŸ»đŸ§’đŸ»đŸ‘ŠđŸ»đŸ§‘đŸ» & anyone from all walks of life willing to learn about the conservation 💚 of the ecology & its surroundings

We at Han Travel, have formed 2ïžâƒŁ new 🆕 arms in our corporation to execute the upcoming programs called Eco Adventure Tourism 💚💚

This will be encased with the educational arm named the Eco Educational Tourism, headed by Mr Frank Kee & his team đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸ’đŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸ’đŸ»â€â™€ïž & in support đŸ’ȘđŸ» with the activities provided by the Adventure Management Tourism headed by Mr Kevin Bateman & his team đŸ™‹đŸœâ€â™‚ïžđŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸ’đŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸ’đŸ»â€â™€ïž

Just 1ïžâƒŁ of our examples for the educational program is the re-planting of bamboo 🎋🎍or specific trees 🌳🌳 by badly eroded areas in the effort to prevent further damage to the riversides 💩💧

This is just an example of what we would provide as a CSR initiative 😀

We shall be working closely with the Sultan Ahmad Environmental foundation 💚 in its efforts, participate & uphold its values 😊

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

Also, current rules & regulations by the government sectors should be looked at & revised to enable operators like us đŸ‘­đŸ‘«đŸ‘Ź to introduce & execute the mutually beneficial conservational education programs 💚💚

In the extended period, the efforts will benefit not just the environment 💚🌳💚 but also creating employment opportunity to the locals within its surroundings đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘«

IđŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œnow urge, the Pahang state Government, Ministry of Tourism & other related government agencies to assist us in paving the way into this journey with us đŸ™đŸ»đŸ€đŸ‘đŸ»đŸ™ŒđŸ»

Other Asian countries are already promoting their countrys’ tagline, for example;-

  • Thailand đŸ‡č🇭 ~ Culture tourism
  • Indonesia đŸ‡źđŸ‡© ~ Art tourism
  • Philippines đŸ‡”đŸ‡­ ~ Diving tourism
  • Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ ~ Eco & Adventure tourism

All told, our Ministry of Tourism Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ have also set their vision 💭 on Eco Tourism 💚 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 💚💚 The launch pad & operations will be at the Han Rainforest Resort, Kuala Tahan 🏡🏘🏡

We hope our efforts will promote & drive the state of Pahang to be model state & also the centre of Ecological 💚 Awareness & the centre for the Education on Rainforest Preservation 🌳🌳

Once again, I đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œ believe that our vision is in line with the Pahang State government’s. Developing a fully functioning centre where the education of the ecology 💚 can spread to all walks of life through an experiential process where participants đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Ź can touch, feel, smell, see and hear the importance of the ecology 💚around us & the threats to its and our existence 😃😁

Thank you đŸ™đŸ»
