Teraja waterfalls can attract more tourists

TOUR operator Sakam Enterprise Sdn Bhd is promoting Kg Teraja’s waterfalls in Belait to attract more ecotourists to come to Brunei.

Bohari Abdullah, manager of Sakam Enterprise, said the firm is planning to recruit youths from the village to become tour guides and promote the 40 beautiful waterfalls.

“We (Sakam Enterprise) recently found out that there are 40 beautiful waterfalls in Kg Teraja which could attract international waterfall travellers,” he said.

He said the firm has discussed with some residents of Kg Teraja’s longhouses about the social and economic benefits of including waterfall trekking in their homestay packages.

Bohari is keen to promote ecotourism, inspired by Malaysia’s promotion of its diving spots in Sarawak.

“I believe that getting more locals to be involved in this business venture would help promote ecotourism in Brunei,” he said.

Bohari said promoting waterfall trekking can create job opportunities for youths in the community and provide income to families in rural villages.

He said the Teraja longhouse received more than 100 visitors during the weekend, thanks to the cultural performance that lured in visitors. Bohari said including waterfall trekking in the homestay package will attract more visitors.

He said the biggest challenges are to promote the waterfalls in the village and to improve the infrastructure around the village.

“We need more promotions about the village and we need to develop and repair our roads and expand parking lots for vehicles,” Bohari said.

He also said the Teraja Hill, which is the highest hill in Belait, can also attract more hikers to visit Brunei.

“Early this year, we received more than 200 locals hiking the hill. Some of these hikers have networked with hikers from other countries,” Bohari said.

This year in Thailand-what next?

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. 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


Indonesia  to launch 13th economic package this month

Coordinating Economic Minister Darmin Nasution said on Wednesday that the government would release its 13th economic policy package in August, adding that the draft had been completed.

Darmin said the 13th package was largely an extension of the previous one, but would expand its focus beyond industry. The 12th package focused on small and medium enterprises.

"We are just waiting to schedule a meeting with the president," Darmin told reporters at his office. He refused to give the exact date the new policy package would come into effect.

 The ministry team must meet with President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo one more time to finalize the details, Darmin said.
