KUCHING, Sept 17: Sarawak’s spectacular diving sites especially in Miri have been receiving great responses from Singapore’s diving community at the Statos exhibition stand during the Asia’s Top Consumer Dive Show (ADEX 2022).

The event, held from Sept 16 to 18 at the Sands Expo and Convetion Centre, is expected to attract divers from all over the world keen to rediscover, renew and revive their passion.

According to a statement by Sarawak Trade and Tourism Office Singapore (Statos) today, first day crowds visiting their booth named ‘Dive Sarawak Borneo’ have shown keen interest in exploring the unique dive experiences on offer in Sarawak.


“With the availability of direct flights between Singapore and Miri on both Scoot and AirAsia, there are some great weekend dive special packages on offer to visit some of the 40 great dive sites off the Miri coast,” it read.

Sarawak exhibitor and also Minda Travel founding director Ian Kuek said they are looking forward to growing the demand of Singaporean divers coming to Miri for a weekend dive escapade.

“Miri is a perfect place for them to relax and experience the famous Kenyalang wreck. Located on a decommissioned oil rig, the rack is one of the Top 10 dive sites in Malaysia and not to be missed,” he said.

Meanwhile, Statos deputy chief executive officer (CEO) Putrie Rozana said Miri tourism has great potential and that Statos is keen to partner with Ian and other local dive operators to further develop this potential. — DayakDaily
