Moreover Khun Mai 🧕🏽 didn’t put in lots of chilies, so not too spicy ❌🌶 for SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 to enjoy

She 👩🏻 has requested for additional sourish, so more organic lime juices being added in to this pot, absolutely delicious to enjoy 😋🤤

Black Pepper & Garlic Shrimps 🍤🍤

Hmm…Perhaps the shrimps 🍤🍤 for this dish were relatively smaller, so its meat slightly softer comparatively

Samut Sakhon ~ Hidden gem in Thailand ğŸ‡¹ğŸ‡­

Hey all‼️ How have you spent your 2018 year end break❓⁉️

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 would like to sharing 👩🏻‍💻📝 about her 2018 year end travelling ğŸŽ’ğŸ•¶ğŸ‘ŸğŸ§¢ with Take Me Tour, Thailand 🇹🇭

Pick 1️⃣ ~ Samut Sakhon from Bangkok: Salt Farm Tour & Homemade Seafood ~ 

Yes ✅, she 👩🏻 has booked 👩🏻‍💻🛒 more than a tour…do stay tune for her next blogging ya 👩🏻‍💻📝

Actually not just a wide variety of day tours, Take Me Tour also providing private car 🚗🚙 airport transfer ✈️, SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has booked 👩🏻‍💻🛒✅ for a few & really impressed 👍🏻🤩 with its reliable, safe & comfy ride 🚗🚙 to/ from Don Mueang International Airport ✈️

Do consider for your convenience especially with night 🌃🌌🛬 arrival ya

Before she 👩🏻 has decided on this tour, she 👩🏻 has read 📖 about the local expert of this said tour named Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀️ who has introduced herself as a wanderer in this small village & then become a close friend to many villagers 👫👭👬

TH4.JPG

During the tour, SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has observed that Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀️ really having a great 👍🏻 relationship with the villagers 👭👬👫 & communicating well 🗣👥👤👥 with them. Definitely a strong healthy bonding 👍🏻🤝 & friendship being built, bravo 👏🏻🙌🏻 to her 🙋🏻‍♀️‼️

She 👩🏻 also truly believes that Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀️has chosen ✅ to lead this day tour to introduce to all guests 👬👭👫 about this small village in a less travelled  province ~ Samut Sakhon, Thailand 🇹🇭 i.e. from the salt water 💦💧 gate, mangrove forest 🌳🌳 , salt farm, home made seafoods 🍽🍴🦀🦐🐟 etc.

Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀️ also aims to help to boost ⬆️ the economy of this small village & increase ⬆️ the earning power 💰 of the villagers 👭👫👬 here especially during the raining ☔️🌧 season where most of the salt farmers here will be experiencing the low ⬇️ salt harvesting

Hmm…How’s this day tour thoughout❓⁉️

She 👩🏻 woke up early that morning 🔅🔆 & went for a local Thai “bak kut teh” breakfast 😋🤤 , a non-halal dish ~ herb pork 🐖🐷🐽 soup 🍲🥣 served with rice 🍛😋🤤 It’s just a stall outside of a local Thai 🇹🇭👫‘s home 🏠🏡 & within walking 🚶🏻‍♀️ distance from her hotel 🏢 named Bangkok Loft Inn 

This hotel 🏢 is located at📍55 Somdet Phra Chao Taksin Rd., Bangyeerua, Thonburi, Bangkok 10600, Thailand 🇹🇭 A nice 👍🏻 comfy stay 🛌🚿🚽with its strategic location📍 i.e. 5️⃣mins walking 🚶🏻‍♀️ distance to the Wongwian Yai BTS skytrain station 🚉, very convenient 🆗🆒 More details for your hotel booking 👩🏻‍💻👨🏻‍💻🛒 via 🌐 http://www.bangkokloftinn.com/ 

After breakfast 🍽🍴😋🤤, she 👩🏻 then proceeded 🚶🏻‍♀️to take the BTS skytrain 🚊 from Wongwian Yai station 🚉 Oppsss…Too early arrival 🔅🔆 at BTS station named Wutthakat 🚉, not because of the time difference ya…

Yes✅, she was about 1️⃣ hour early from meet up @ 9️⃣am to meet up with Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀️ as stated in her Take Me Tour booking 📌 Just too excited 😆 for the day tour, Ha…Ha…Don’t laugh 😆😂 at her ya

Yeah‼️ A very nice 👍🏻 morning 🔅🔆 view with river 💦💧, long boat 🛶 & wat ⛩ from the BTS station 🚇 during her wait for the meet up 👩🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

Hmm…She 👩🏻 was a bit lazy, else she would have walk🚶🏻‍♀️to visit this wat  ⛩ nearby that morning 🔅🔆 Instead she 👩🏻 seated down in the BTS station 🚉 & then logged in to her social medias 📱 & catching up with her friends & family members 👫👭👬 with her new 🆕  Thai simcard named DTAC , more details via 🌐 https://www.dtac.co.th/en/move-to-dtac/

Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀️ was early to arrive too, so both 👩🏻🙋🏻‍♀️ then started this day tour slightly early that the scheduled time of 9️⃣am

Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀️ is so friendly & shares the same travel passion as SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻, hence lots of common interest to chit chat 🗣👤 about during their approximately 30mins journey 🚙 to Samut Sakhon province, also known by the locals as “Maha Chai” 😀

Both happily 😃 exchanged lots of respective travel stories, always a nice 👍🏻 meet & catch up with a travel lover during travel journeys 😁

As you have reading 📖 her earlier blogging 👩🏻‍💻📝 here, she 👩🏻 has visited plenty of mangrove parks 🌳🌳 in her home country ~ Malaysia 🇲🇾

However, this is SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻‘s 1️⃣st visit to a Thailand 🇹🇭‘s natural coastal mangrove forest 🌳🌳, a home to a wide variety of birds 🦅🐦 & mudskippers 🐟🐟 & along the Gulf of Thailand 🌊🇹🇭

Oppsss…The mudskippers 🐟🐟 here are fat & huge, it was high tides 🌊 during her visit, so not able ❌ to note the colourful Hermit crabs 🐚🦀crawling on the muddy field 😌☺️

Not to missed a visit to its mini museum / perhaps more to a conservation project centre 💚💚 with a collection of whale 🐋🐳 skeletons, details about some small animals lived in this forest 🌳🌳 before as well as some its on-going marine conservation initiatives 🌊💚💚 here i.e. mangrove trees planting 🌳🌳, a bamboo ğŸŽğŸŽ‹ border project to avoid further water 💦💧 & soil erosion to this forest 🌳🌳 etc.

Tawaf means to go around 🔄 A perfect match with how a clock 🕰 works, with the earth 🌏 & time 🕛 They all go around 🔄, hence Tawaf Timepieces ⌚️

Once said the timepieces ⌚️⌚️ of this brand name are simple yet stylish. It comes in a variety of colours & styles to suit your casual everyday watch ⌚️ to something you can wear for dinner 🍽🍴 functions / even to a gala 💃🏻🤵🏻‼️

IMG_0044.JPG

Finally, she 👩🏻 picks ✅ for Safa, it means in Arabic for purity, clarity, serenity, lucidity, fineness & fairness. Yeah‼️😁

Impressive Bon Om Touk ~ Cambodian Water Festival 2018

Yeah‼️ SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 is gonna sharing 👩🏻‍💻📝 here about her impressive 🤩 & unforgettable experience gained from the annual Cambodian 🇰🇭 Water 💦💧 Festival ğŸŽ‰ğŸŽŠ, Phnom Penh, Cambodia 🇰🇭

So, it was all started with a short queue to get her 👩🏻 cheap ⬇️ flight ticket ✈️ during the AirAsia BIG Xchange & BIG Fest event ❤️ in Sept (as shown in the short clip ğŸ“¹ğŸŽ¥below). It was with only a limited choice of destinations📍📍available

She 👩🏻 has chosen ✅ for Phnom Penh 🇰🇭 under Lane B with a very 1️⃣st intention to meet & visit 1️⃣ of her girlfriend 🙋🏻‍♀️ who is working there as an expatriate currently. However, sadly 😟 that her friend 🙋🏻‍♀️ wasn’t around ❌ Phnom Penh 🇰🇭 during her travel dates 🗓 Sigh…From a friend visit👭, then she had it as 1️⃣ of her annual solo travelsss ğŸŽ’ğŸ§¢ğŸ•¶ğŸ‘Ÿ

💗 ~ Everything Happens For A Reason ~ 💗

Also initially she 👩🏻 did plan to let go this solo trip because of a clash to a tourism event ~ MITA Sarawak, Malaysia 🇲🇾 that she 👩🏻 has always supporting 💪🏻✌🏻the tourism authority 😊 in Malaysia 🇲🇾️

Guess what❓⁉️

Her trip is gonna be during the annual Cambodian 🇰🇭 Water 💦💧 Festival ğŸŽ‰ğŸŽŠÂ named Bon Om Touk in local Khmer language 🇰🇭 from 21 Nov to 23 Nov 2018 😃😁 It also known as The Pirogue 🚣🏻‍♂️🚣🏻‍♀️ Racing Festival ğŸŽ‰ğŸŽŠÂ or Water 💦💧 & Moon 🌑 Festival ğŸŽ‰ğŸŽŠ & Boat Racing 🚣🏻‍♀️🚣🏻‍♂️

http://cambodia-tourism.org/plan-your-trip/events/cambodian-water-festival/

It was really a coincident‼️ Once she 👩🏻 has decided ✅ to stay with this solo travel ğŸŽ’ğŸ•¶ğŸ§¢ğŸ‘Ÿ due to the complicated & difficult flight change 😟✈️ Also this gonna be her 1️⃣st visit to Phnom Penh, Cambodia 🇰🇭

This biggest celebration marks a 12th century naval victory with boat 🚣🏻‍♀️🚣🏻‍♂️ racing along the Sisowath Quay 💦💧 with the boat 🚣🏻‍♀️🚣🏻‍♂️ racing on the Tonle Sap River, in particular the area stretching from street 104 to street 178 of Phnom Penh city centre 🇰🇭

Many hostels 🏡🏘, hotels 🏢, restaurants 🍽🍴 & bars 🥂🍻🍸around this area ~ Very convenience for all visitors 👫👭👬

Photo 27-11-2018, 3 21 18 PMPhoto 27-11-2018, 3 22 33 PM

In the morning 🔅🔆 & before the race 🚣🏻‍♂️🚣🏻‍♀️ starts during this 3️⃣-day festival ğŸŽ‰ğŸŽ€, the riverside & streets were much more peaceful 😌

Once the race starts around 🔟am, the huge crowd 👭👬👫 at the riverside will be observed 😃👏🏻🙌🏻

However, in 2015 this celebration ğŸŽ‰ğŸŽŠ was cancelled ❌ due to the low ⬇️ water level 💦💧

Hurray‼️ She 👩🏻 always wanna appreciating & experiencing a country’s tradition culture during her travels âœˆï¸ğŸŽ’ğŸ•¶ğŸ§¢ğŸ‘ŸÂ This is just so a lovely 💓 coincidence 😉

So, what’s this water 💦💧 festival ğŸŽŠğŸŽ‰ all about❓⁉️

It’s a 3️⃣ days non-religious celebration ğŸŽ‰ğŸŽŠ & symbolised as an ancient appreciation 🙏🏻 for centuries to the river 💦💧for providing a source of livelihood to the farmers 👨🏻‍🌾👩🏻‍🌾 & fishermen ğŸŸğŸŽ£

Hmm…It’s a kind of local Khmers 🇰🇭👫👭👬 thanksgiving 🙏 celebration ğŸŽ‰ğŸŽŠ

The Cambodian boat crews 🇰🇭🚣🏻‍♀️🚣🏻‍♂️ were face forward. Many of the boat crews 🚣🏻‍♀️🚣🏻‍♂️ were complemented with a colorfully-costumed lady 💁🏻‍♀️at the prow dancing to the beat of the drums 🥁🥁

However, from her observation, majority of the boats now don’t really practising this tradition though. Hmm…From her 2️⃣ days visits to the festival, she only noticed for 2️⃣ boats with a colorfully-costumed lady 💁🏻‍♀️ at the front of the boat 🚣🏻‍♀️🚣🏻‍♂️

For the 1️⃣st 2️⃣ days, races 🚣🏻‍♀️🚣🏻‍♂️ are run with 2️⃣ boats 🛶🛶 each, with the big race 🚣🏻‍♂️🚣🏻‍♂️ happening on the last day, when all the boats 🛶🛶 take to the river 💦💧 to compete 😃

There were carnival, rides, traditional music ğŸŽ¼ğŸŽ¶ğŸŽµ performances, dances 💃🏻🕺🏼👯‍♀️👯‍♂️🕴🏻etc. in the evening 🏙🌃🌌

There were many stall vendors, definitely food 🍛🍲🥘🍽🍴& drink 🥤🍻🍷🥂🍸🍹overflow on the streets, Khmer pop bands ğŸŽ¼ğŸŽ¹ğŸŽ§ğŸŽ¶ğŸŽµentertaining the crowds 👭👬👫 etc.

Photo 27-11-2018, 12 43 20 PM

Personally, she 👩🏻 was impressed how the local vendors actually earn their living 💰by selling drinks 🥤& snacks 🥡🍰🥧🥪 to the huge crowds 👭👬👫 at the riverside during the boat racing 🚣🏻‍♀️🚣🏻‍♂️

There were approximately 300 boats 🛶🛶 with 19k pax of boat rowers 🚣🏻‍♀️🚣🏻‍♂️ Wow!!

Hmm…🤔 How about the huge crowd 👭👫👬attended for this 3️⃣-day festival celebration ğŸŽ‰ğŸŽŠ in Phnom Penh❓⁉️

IMG_4571.JPG

It was about 4.5million people 👭👬👫 including expatriates, foreign visitors, local Khmers from all provinces etc. as shared at the closing ceremony 😁

Ohh yeah‼️ This year, 2018 i.e. The 3rd great successfull year with Cambodia 🇰🇭 has handbuilt the world 🌍🗺 ‘s longest rowing boat 🚣🏻‍♀️ at 87.3m long & 1.99m wide with cost of $60k. It was completed successfully 👍🏻👏🏻🙌🏻 in Sept by more than 14k local Khmers 🇰🇭👭👬👫 in 192 days 😲😃

Guess what❓⁉️

Another Guinness World 🌍🗺 Record 🏆 won (It’s the 5️⃣th one) by Cambodia 🇰🇭 as this long dragon boat 🚣🏻‍♂️ is capable of carrying 179 boat rowers 🚣🏻‍♂️🚣🏻‍♀️ on it‼️ Wow‼️😲 This great 👍🏻 news was anounced on 12 Nov at Prey Veng province of Phnom Penh 🇰🇭

From her own experience, a few points 📌📌 to note if you’re interested to be at Phnom Penh or Siem Reap for this great 👍🏻 annual celebration ğŸŽŠğŸŽ‰

Ohh ya…A pair of comfy shoes 👟 is essentials ✅ because it was vehicles free 🆓 i.e. No public transport ❌🚌🚕🚗 🚐 being available to the festival ğŸŽ‰ğŸŽŠ ground📍, more details via 🌐 https://www.khmertimeskh.com/50551697/city-hall-issues-vehicle-ban-for-water-festival/

In this connection, the only option would be just getting around by your own foot 👣

Yeah‼️ SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 got her sun â˜€ï¸ğŸŒž protection from the 🆕 Petal Velvet Sunaway SPF50 ordered & purchased 👩🏻‍💻🛒 from Althea Korea 🇰🇷 You must remember to put up your sunscreen to avoid sunburn

Photo 27-11-2018, 12 35 31 PM.jpg

Next, do bring an umbrella 🌂☂ (You may loan it from your hotel, it can be a weapon if needed)/ wear a cap 🧢

Do dress up in a light modest clothing 👚 to enjoy the boat 🚣🏻‍♀️🚣🏻‍♂️ race cheerings with the local Khmers 🇰🇭👭👬👫 at the riverside under the hot sunny ğŸ˜Žâ˜€ï¸ day

Ohh ya…Do remember your refillable water 💦💧 bottle to avoid dehydration ya 😌

She 👩🏻 was with the local Khmers 🇰🇭👫👭👬 on her 1️⃣st visit & then 2️⃣nd visit the next day at the designated area by Tourism Cambodia 🇰🇭 for the foreign tourists 👬👫👭 (Served with free 🆓 flow of drinks🥤🥤available)

The riversides 💦💧 were extremely packed & crowded 👬👫👭 with both the local Khmers 🇰🇭👫👭👬 & foreign tourists to cheering for their favorite ❤️ boats🚣🏻‍♂️🚣🏻‍♀️during the races, so suggest you to bring only the bare necessities & hold on tight to what you have. Also being alert with your surroundings too while in the huge crowd 👭👬👫

Why❓⁉️

Hmm…You never know whether you will be being targetted by any pick-pockets/ bag-snatchers 😈👿 whom may just roaming around the crowded festival ğŸŽ‰ğŸŽŠ riversides 💦💧& streets. So, even though this festival ğŸŽ‰ğŸŽŠ is a free 🆓 celebration ğŸŽ‰ğŸŽŠ , however it can get really expensive if you make a mistake by carrying valuables into the crowds 👭👬👫

Always better be safe then sorry ya ☺️😉

There were several types of rowing 🚣🏻‍♀️🚣🏻‍♂️ styles observed from her visits, i.e. sitting down & manual rowing, standing up & manual rowing, standing up & auto rowing etc. She 👩🏻 is curious 🤔 how the marks will be allocate within each different styles as well as the determining factors of winning ğŸ†ğŸŽ– too❓⁉️

Perhaps logically the shortest time 🕛 of completion from the start till end time of each boat at the finishing line (The 2️⃣ red ❤️ boats 🚣🏻‍♀️🚣🏻‍♂️ as captured in the photo 📸 & vBlog ğŸ“¹ğŸŽ¥below)

There were live announcement during the boat racing 🚣🏻‍♂️🚣🏻‍♀️, however in local Khmer 🇰🇭 language & ❌ no English translation. It would be good to have a live English announcement in the next year festival onwards ya 😊

The King Norodom Sihamoni 🤴🏻, Prime Minister Hun Sen 👨🏻‍💼& some senior officials 🙋🏻‍♂️💁🏻‍♂️ have all attended the closing ceremony on the last day of this festival ğŸŽ‰ğŸŽŠ She 👩🏻 has observed from the TV screen 📺 at the foreign visitors designated booth

Ohh ya…She 👩🏻 has enjoyed the longest & the pretty 😍🤩 fireworks ğŸŽ†ğŸŽ‡ so far from the closing ceremony of this water festival ğŸŽ‰ğŸŽŠ

Really amazing beautiful 😍🤩 & with the boats 🛶🛶 decorated with LED lighting💡💡screens represented by each relevant authorities of organising & managing this water 💦💧 festival ğŸŽŠğŸŽ‰ e.g. Tourism, Justice, Ministry of Art & Handicrafts etc. to name a few noted 😉

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has captured a vBlog ğŸ“¹ğŸŽ¥ for sharing here, do click in to enjoy it ya 🤗

Ohh ya…Some of the eateries 🍽🍴 & shops 🛒🛍may close ⛔️ during this water 💦💧 festival ğŸŽ‰ğŸŽŠ (All 3️⃣ days) & resume their operation then 🤗

This festival ğŸŽŠğŸŽ‰ also ended with lots of clean up & tidy up at the riverside by the local Khmers 🇰🇭👬👬👬

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 was blessed 😇 that she 👩🏻 stay with her decision to continue with this solo travel & really enjoyed this water 💦💧 festival celebration ğŸŽŠ ğŸŽ‰ & highly recommended 👍🏻👆🏻to all travellers that would like to appreciating & participating local heritage & cultures celebration.

National Park Pahang, Malaysia ğŸ‡²ğŸ‡¾

Yeah‼️ SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has recently travelled to Taman Negara 🌳🌳 (aka National Park 🌳🌳 ) Pahang, Malaysia 🇲🇾 with MITA business networking trip & enjoyed her back to nature 💚 stay 🛌🚿🚽😴💤 at Han Rainforest Resort 🏡🏘🏡

She 👩🏻 had a privilege to meet & enjoyed an inspiring chat 🗣👤 with the founder of the resort🏡🏘🏡, Mr Kenny Ng 👨🏻‍💼(Uncle Kenny) about his nature 💚 💚 passion & resort busines journey

Oppsss…SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has forgot 🤦🏻‍♀️ to have a photo 📸 with Uncle Kenny 👨🏻‍💼 during this trip

He 👨🏻‍💼 has generously shared an article ✍🏻📜wrote by him & SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 would like to share 👩🏻‍💻📝 it here, inclusion of her favourite ❤️ emojisss & capturesss 📸 in between 😃😁

🤗 ~ Sharing is caring as always ~~ 🤗

Taman Negara🌳🌳, situated in the heart ❤️of Pahang, Malaysia 🇲🇾 , is 1️⃣ of the oldest rainforest 🌳🌳 in the world 🗺🌍 at 130 million years old

Within it, lays a geographical 🌍 wonder of permanently untouched & protected habitat for flora 🌳🌱🌿🌺 & fauna 🦓🐆🐅🐘 to florish to all its glory

As such, this a perfect 👍🏻 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 🗺🌍 platform for the both Eco & Adventure education tourism centre 😃

My 👨🏻‍💼 humble beginnings of 30 plus years specialising in tourism at Taman Negara 🌳🌳 & the handling of some 1️⃣ million over tourists 👫👭👬 since day 1️⃣, has led me 👨🏻‍💼 to the formation of 2️⃣ travel agencies (NKS & Han Travel) & a resort 🏡🏘🏡 with the biggest room capacity at Kuala Tahan. We average 30k tourists 👬👫👭 a year & 90% of them are from Europe 🇬🇧 🇮🇹 🇩🇪 🌍🗺

It has come to a time, where I 👨🏻‍💼 feel personally, having been in this trade for 30 odd years, it is time to educate the younger generation 👧🏻🧒🏻👦🏻🧑🏻 & anyone from all walks of life willing to learn about the conservation 💚 of the ecology & its surroundings

We at Han Travel, have formed 2️⃣ 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 🙋🏻‍♂️🙋🏻‍♀️💁🏻‍♂️💁🏻‍♀️ & in support 💪🏻 with the activities provided by the Adventure Management Tourism headed by Mr Kevin Bateman & his team 🙋🏽‍♂️🙋🏻‍♀️💁🏻‍♂️💁🏻‍♀️

Just 1️⃣ of our examples for the educational program is the re-planting of bamboo ğŸŽ‹ğŸŽ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 😥😓 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 👭👫👬 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 👭👬👫

I👨🏻‍💼now urge, the Pahang state Government, Ministry of Tourism & other related government agencies to assist us in paving the way into this journey with us 🙏🏻🤝👏🏻🙌🏻

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

  • Thailand 🇹🇭 ~ Culture tourism
  • Indonesia 🇮🇩 ~ Art tourism
  • Philippines 🇵🇭 ~ Diving tourism
  • Malaysia 🇲🇾 ~ Eco & Adventure tourism

All told, our Ministry of Tourism Malaysia 🇲🇾 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 👨🏻‍💼 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 👫👭👬 can touch, feel, smell, see and hear the importance of the ecology 💚around us & the threats to its and our existence 😃😁

Thank you 🙏🏻

Hmm…As a go green 💚supporter, SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 wishes this ecotourism resort 💚🌳🌳🏡🏘🏡 can consider to set up some water 💦💧 dispensers within its resort compound 💚🌳🌳🏡🏘🏡 & then prepare the glass water bottles/ jugs/ flasks in hotel rooms, instead of plastic bottled water 💦💧 for all its guests 👫👭👬 This definitely will reduce ⬇️ lots of the plastic usage
