The Tutong Destination Packages will be officiated in the very near future. With an aim of promoting tourist attractions offered in Tutong, the initiative is a collaborative effort between the Tourism Development Department and the Tutong District Tourism Coordination and Promotion Body. As part of preparations for the upcoming promotion of 'Tutong Destination Packages', two locations THIS MORNING received a visit from Yang Berhormat Dato Seri Setia Awang Haji Ali bin Haji Apong, Minister of Primary Resources and Tourism. The locations are the Telaga Tujuh Mandian Puteri in Kampong Tanjong Maya and Seri Melati Entreprise which is a fibreglass boat building enterprise in Kampung Kuala Tutong.
Yang Berhormat first visited the Telaga Tujuh Mandian Puteri in Kampong Tanjong Maya, where Awang Sha'ari bin Haji Zunaidi promotes a stay in his Guesthouse that offers visitors the farm experience, including extracting honey from stingless bees and rearing goats. Visitors can trek to the legendary wells or reach there, using a 4 by 4 ride.
Yang Berhormat continued his visit to Seri Melati Entreprise which is a fibreglass boat building company situated in Kampong Kuala Tutong. The enterprise is also able to operate a river cruise along the Tutong River which can become an attraction for visitors, both local and foreign. This represents an opportunity for the owner Awang Haji Abdul Rashid bin Haji Mahmood to expand his business.
In an interview with RTB, Yang Berhormat urged all tourism stakeholders, travel agents, airlines, accommodation providers and local communities to work together in building the Tutong District and other local tourism destinations.
