KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia is a hot-bed for the world’s rarest iconic natural attractions and serves as a tourist magnet.
The country has attractive locations with vast potential for development as eco-tourism icons, according to an expert.
Universiti Teknologi Malaysia centre for innovative planning and development director Prof Amran Hamzah said Malaysia’s natural attractions would lure tourist arrivals to the country.
Currently, Amran said Sabah and Sarawak were the country’s largest contributors to the eco-tourism industry compared to Peninsular Malaysia, as they had the world’s rarest iconic attractions.
