National Park Pahang, Malaysia ðŸ‡²ðŸ‡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 🎋🎍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 🙏🏻

Yes✅, not the commonly found fresh water 💦💧 hot spring within Malaysia🇲🇾

Moreover, it’s not nearby sea 🌊 side, this village is located 📍in the middle of Langkawi Island 🌴🏖🏝

This is really rare & can only be found in 3️⃣ other countries in the world i.e. Green Island in Taiwan 🇹🇼 (nearby sea 🌊 side), Kyushu Island in Japan 🇯🇵 & Sicily in Italy 🇮🇹 So, a must visit when you’re at Langkawi Island 🌴🏖👍🏻

Hmm…She has read 📖 some unfavourable comments, however from her recent visit, she notes that the maintaining is all right & of course can be enhanced. Overall, it’s clean & comfy for her 1️⃣st salted hot spring 💦💧experience 😀 She loves it ❤️

Wow‼️ Congrats 👏🏻🙌🏻 for this successful tourism event organised towards achieving tourism productivity of 4.1% a year i.e. aligning with the Government initiative 🙌🏻✌🏻

This is her 2️⃣nd participation, 1️⃣st was at Langkawi Island 🌴🏖🏝, refer link 👩🏻‍💻📝 below,

🌐 https://siennylovesdrawing.wordpress.com/2018/07/24/mita-business-networking-langkawi-island/

With the continuous great 👍 effort of organising more tourism events moving forward, surely will increasing ⬆️ the 1.1% growth of 2017 overall tourism employment rate & future years 👏🏻🙌🏻

This tourism event was held📍with concurrent sessions in the grand ballroom of Royale Chulan Seremban 🏢,

  • ezBE consultation ~ An online self- assessment tool to gauge an entity/ organisation’s succes, more details via http://wayup.my/index.php/ezbe-assessment-tool/

  • B2B networking
  • Small Medium Enterprises (SME) Products Showcasing by the Seremban Municipal Council (MPS)

Hmm…What’s the objectives 📌 of this MITA Business To Business (B2B) at N9️⃣❓⁉️

MITA aims to,

1) Showcasing Tourism Products @ N9️⃣

2) Networking among tourism players 👭👫👬

3) Maximizing ⬆️ the productivity of local tourism asset, including locally produced art & craft 🎨🖌

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 had an awesome 🤩 learning experience of handmaking 👐🏻🙌🏻 a colourful 🌈 basket with rattan at the booth of Malaysia 🇲🇾 Handicraft Development Corporation ~ N9️⃣ branch 😀

4) Providing a platform 🗣👥👤👥 to identify issues & challenges in hampering productivity growth 📈

She 👩🏻 has learnt a lot from the forum 🗣👥👤👥 which moderated by YBhg Dato’ K Thangavelu ~ “Challenges & Opportunities for Tourism in Negeri Sembilan” with panelists from Tourism Malaysia, N9️⃣ Economic Planning unit (EPU), MPS, MITA’ s Chinese Individual Market & MITA’s Incentive group

Some of the challenges faced to continue developing N9️⃣ as a greater 👍🏻 tourist destination📍among both local & foreign tourists👭👫👬 including low ⬇️ awareness of its tourist spots📍📍to visit, having enough multi-language talented tourist guides 👫👬👭especially to service the increasing trend of China 🇨🇳 tourists 👭👫👬, greater 👍🏻 transportation infrastructure 🚊🚖🚞🚌 in place to receiving greater ⬆️ no. of tourists 👭👬👫 to N9️⃣ etc.

5) Having engagement opportunities on strategic planning, best management practices & collaboration with government agencies, industry & community leaders 👭👬👫

6) Receiving the latest update on strategies by Local Tourism Authorities i.e. Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture Malaysia (MOTAC), MPS, Tourism Productivity Nexus, MPC etc. 👍🏻

7) Implementing Tourism Product Audit practices

The choice of tourist destinations📍 are both Seremban & Port Dickson (PD) of N9️⃣, West Malaysia 🇲🇾 Hmm…Why N9️⃣❓⁉️

“It’s because N9️⃣ located📍in between South states of West Malaysia 🇲🇾 to Kuala Lumpur (KL) 🌆🌃 & both local & foreign tourists 👫👭👬 will passing by whenever travelling on the road 🚗🚕🚌🚐 from South, however most of the time missing it by not ❌ stopping by to learn more & experiencing its Adat Perpatih cultures” said Mr Uzaidi Udanis 👨🏽‍💼, the President of MITA & Chairman of the Tourism Productivity Nexus during the event
