公元399年,晋朝,法顯法師以六十五歲高齡發跡長安,涉流沙、逾蔥嶺,徒步數萬里,遍遊北印,廣參聖跡,學習梵文,抄錄經典,歷時多年,復泛海至獅子國今斯里蘭卡,經耶婆提今印度尼西亞而後返國。時年已八十歲,仍從事佛經翻譯。

《Chinese Cultural Heritage in Sarawak》

by Dr Tan Beng Huat, Chairman,
Silk Road Cultural Endowment.


For  the first time in Malaysian History,  the Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture is a Sarawakian. After Dato' Dr Ng Yen Yen, Dato' Sri Nancy Shukriis the second lady politician heads this Portfolio. Doubtless to say, East Malaysia is rich beyond imagination in natural & cultural endowment, don't forget that, Malaysia's very first two World Heritage Sites listed with UNESCO, namely Mulu Cave of Sarawak & Mt. Kinabalu of Sabah are at this part of the world. On the other hand, there are still many hidden gems exist without travelers' deservedly attention. Here is one of my sincere personal recommendations, Sibu's various cultural parks contributed by the local Chinese Communities from different dialects/ancestry. You can hardly find any similar cultural phenomena in other parts of the world.

In view of the severe blows to the tourism industryby the Covid-19,  the attention to this new venture is even more timely and pressing. Our tourism sector is already vulnerable enough even long before the outbreak of the present pandemic, are we serious to rebuild it? China can be our role model. Although the initial figure predicted that only 14% of their tourism SME will survive the current challenge, they have managed to adapt to changes fast. While we still re struggling, they have begun to return to the prosperity they enjoyed before. Their experience can prevent us from unnecessary attempts.

It's advisable to rebuild with new model/rules of the game. Including developing more rural/suburban destinations to avoid congestion;AND more places to promote health tourism. Isn't that sound suggestive to Sarawak & Sabah?
