Assistant Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Joniston Bangkuai has emphasised the need to intensify efforts to promote history tourism in Sabah, highlighting the historical significance of the state's past.
He said that while Sabah is renowned for its stunning natural beauty, its historical treasures deserve equal attention and aggressive promotion.
“Sabah's historical milestones, such as its liberation from Japanese occupation, serve as a testament to the resilience and bravery of Sabahans who endured hardships during those challenging times," said Joniston in a statement.
“Countries like South Korea and Vietnam have effectively capitalised on their wartime histories to attract millions of tourists interested in understanding their past."
