Promote dragon boat race to tourists

Local tour operators have been asked to help promote the upcoming 9th Sabah FCAS International Dragon Boat Race 2024, which will be held at Likas Bay from June 7 to 9.

Tourism, Culture, and Environment Minister Datuk Christina Liew urged tour operators to bring their clients and guests to watch the race.

Liew stated that this annual competitive event, an integral part of the dragon boat festival, is one of Sabah’s well-known tourism attractions.

“It is a crowd-puller, especially on the final race day (June 9), when young and old alike from the local community, as well as foreign visitors, gather at the venue to watch the excitement and results,” she said.

The Federation of Chinese Associations Sabah (FCAS) has invited Liew to launch the Sunset Beach Party for all participants at Likas Bay on June 7.

During a courtesy call to brief the Minister, FCAS President Tan Sri Goh Tian Chuan said the organisers have received confirmation of participation from five international teams from Xiamen (China), Singapore, and Brunei.

Also present was Deputy President and Event Organising Chairperson Datuk Susan Wong Siew Guen.
