Travel package to attract more Middle East tourists

A LOCAL tour operator has collaborated with an Egyptian travel agency to attract more Middle Eastern tourists to visit Brunei.

Hj Abdul Rahman Mat, owner of Raudah Al-Amin Sdn Bhd, said the Belait-based agency has partnered with Egypt tour operator Temo Tours to promote the Umrah Plus travel package.

“I met with the managing director of Temo Tours last year in December to discuss about developing a travel services agreement that can benefit both sides,” he said.

The initial plan was for Temo Tours to encourage more Bruneians to visit Egypt. But Hj Abdul Rahman proposed that Temo Tours help Raudah Al-Amin to bring in more Egyptian and other Middle Eastern tourists to visit Brunei.

He said some 15 representatives from Temo Tours are expected to tour Brunei’s key attractions by the end of this year to develop packages for Middle Eastern tourists.

He said the managing director of Temo Tours is keen on the sultanate as Brunei is politically-stable and has a lot of mosques that can attract Middle Eastern tourists.

Hj Abdul Rahman hoped the collaboration with Temo Tours will succeed as this will also benefit tourism-related businesses such as hotels and restaurants.

He is also urging businesses to offer affordable rates to encourage more tourists to visit Brunei,

“If the stakeholders like restaurant owners offer affordable prices, they will get repeat clients. They (tourists) would want to return and visit Brunei again. They will tell their relatives and friends about the country. It’s the best marketing strategy,” he said.

As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
