Information plays a pertinent role in tourism promotion. With easy access to crucial information, travelling would be made a lot easier and more convenient.
Sibu Tourist Map is a tourist information leaflet published by Sarawak Tourism Board (STB). Copies of this publication are freely available to all hoteliers for distribution to hotel guests for easy reference.
This map is a helpful guide for travellers. Demand for it is brisk and we have to seek replenishments from Visitors' Information Centre Sibu (VIC Sibu) quite regularly.
But the awkward stock shortage for the map has been going on for more than 3 months. VIC Sibu is apparently not sufficiently stocked up.
This afternoon, I called up VIC Sibu personally and was most appalled to be informed that the stock level has gone down to so critically low level that I may get nothing more than 5 copies of Sibu Tourist Map.
Tourism promotion - we just have to go down to the very bases!
