For the Visit Kenyir Year 2021, the Central Terengganu Development Authority (Ketengah) now plans various tourism activities to rejuvenate the tourism industry.
The visit Kenyir year project was timely to support players in the tourism industry, who had been badly affected by the COVID-18 pandemic, to revive their businesses, said Datuk Razali Idris,Ketengah Chairman.
“Before this, Ketengah would usually hold Kenyir Festival for a month every year, but the Visit Kenyir Year 2021 would see improvements and special tour packages arranged according to the season and situation at the location.
"Ketengah has just completed a workshop with tour operators in Tasik Kenyir to identify the products for tourists including extreme sports, education, cycling, fishing competition, and hiking Gunung Gagau as well as exploring several remote islands,” he said.
One million fish fries are released in January during Visit Kenyir Year 2021, Media Tasik Kenyir Exploration Tour, Kenyir Bird, and Nature Quest, Gunung Gagau Adventure Discovery, Kenyir Snakehead Battle Fishing Competition, as well as educational activities with the Terengganu Education Department and selected higher learning institutions.
In the meantime, Tengku Ahmad Nadzri Tengku Musa, general manager of Ketengah claimed that every tourism operation was designed to ensure that even during monsoon Terengganu remains a tourist attraction.
“The focus on tourism shifted to Tasik Kenyir as many island resorts in Terengganu could not be visited due to safety, so we are planning various suitable activities for tourists all year-round.
“Similarly, the unique lifestyle of the Orang Asli village in Sungai Berua is also an attraction in Tasik Kenyir and we will also promote the natural beauty and the 1001 flora and fauna found for tourism based on research and education,” he said.
