Vietnam Learns From Sarawak National Parks

In a bid to glean knowledge from Sarawak’s ecotourism, conservation tourism and national park management, a delegation of Danang Department of Tourism, Vietnam visited Kuching from August 15 to 19. 

In addition to Bako National Park, the delegation visited Semenggoh Wildlife Centre and were briefed by the Sarawak Forestry Corporation.

They were awestruck by Sarawak’s use of wooden staircases instead of cement and how the parks provide job opportunities to locals in the form of maintenance, construction, transportation and guiding.

Among the delegation were the deputy director of Danang Tourism Truong Thi Hong Hanh, Planning and Development Division deputy managers Phan Minh Hai and Son Tra as well as Peninsula management board deputy director Nguyen Duc Vu.
