KUCHING, Oct 15: The ‘Jom Ke Sarawak’ (JKS) new interstate campaign featuring 16 discounted tour packages throughout Sarawak’s southern, central and northern region is now available through Shopee Malaysia.
Visitors will now be able to start planning for that much deserved getaway to Sarawak this year end, as the attractive packages start as low as RM176 per person for a three-day, two-night stay package.
Sarawak Tourism Board (STB) chief executive officer Sharzede Salleh Askor who spoke at the launching ceremony today said that with the reopening of borders, the ‘buy now, travel later’ JKS campaign comes as a golden opportunity for travellers to rediscover Sarawak at its full potential at a discounted price.
The ‘buy now, travel later’ campaign is a joint collaboration between STB, Sarawak Tourism Federation (STF), Association of Sarawak Inbound Agencies (ASIA) and Shopee Malaysia.
“After what could be described as a tough year, it is finally the right time to reset, refresh and rejuvenate this year end. Sarawak has a lot to offer, varying from adventure to leisure, recreation, gastronomy, heritage, and culture making it the right choice for your next vacation plan,” Sharzede said.
“Our previous collaborations with Shopee Malaysia have proven successful with both local and international audiences and therefore we are excited to collaborate with them again to come up with more attractive tour packages for all travellers to enjoy,” she added.
With interstate travel now allowed, the safety of both locals and travellers to Sarawak remains a main priority.
Stringent Covid-19 standard operation procedures (SOP) will continue to be enforced and observed in every destination within the State.
As Sarawak is preparing to anticipate the needs of a new type of tourist emerging from the pandemic, or ‘revenge travellers’, she said STB has initiated other campaigns such as the intra-state Sia Sitok Sarawak V2.0 campaign, Sia Sitok Sarawak Accomodation Campaign, and Visitors Incentive Package (VIP).
Meanwhile, bookings can be made from Oct 15 to Dec 5, 2021 through Shopee Malaysia’s online platform and the travel period starts from Oct 15 to Dec 15, 2021.
