Sabah nation's No 1 destination

Kuala Lumpur: Sabah dropped a bombshell at the Diplomatic Tourism Awards night, Wednesday, when it won the prestigious Celcom "Favourite Tourist Destination" gold award in a revolutionary judging system where ambassadors and senior diplomats voted.

Since about 70 diplomats in Malaysia voted, the verdict reflected strong element of "world" perception and opinion of Sabah. That point was actually verbalised by the event's organisers.

"Indeed we have the world with us tonight," remarked Dato Shamsul Falak Abdul Kadir, President of the Kuala Lumpur Tourism Council, noting the presence of ambassadors and senior representatives from 70 countries.

" I believe this is their vote of confidence in Sabah," said a beaming Datuk Masidi Manjun, Sabah Minister of Culture, Tourism and Environment, after receiving the award from His Excellency Alfredo Morelli, Ambassador of Argentina, Dean of the Diplomatic Corps and Dato Sri Zulhasanan Rafique, Minister of Federal Territories, at a packed "Diplomacy In Tourism Dinner" at Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur.

Malacca, Penang and Langkawi were among the nominees for the "Favourite Tourist Destination" category. The chase for the gold in the end was between Sabah and Langkawi but Sabah came out tops and Langkawi took the Silver.

"Finally, we can say we have the most beautiful state in Malaysia and I think what puts us above everyone else is the natural friendliness of the people of Sabah and the fact that our racial make-up is second to none in the whole country.

"We have a world class destination and we have a world class population who are naturally friendly, not judgmental, always welcome visitors as brothers and sisters," he said.

"The most-heard comments I have received from foreigners is we are naturally friendly, that we don't seem to be burdened by racial or religious baggage. They say it is only in Sabah they find people who don't talk about religion and don't talk about race," Masidi reflected.

" But a very important point I want to say about this is that I see it as a vote of affirmation that Sabah is safe which should put to bed doubts about the security issue," he said.

The main point about Diplomacy In Tourism is the idea of "reciprocal tourism," noted Dato Sri Zulhasnan Rafique in his speech.

Putting diplomats into the travel trade picture reflects a new recognition that they can indeed become key players in the development of "reciprocal tourism," he said.

Dato Shamsul cited the AirAsia mantra "Now everyone can fly" to highlight the trend that Malaysians are flying out in almost equal numbers as foreign tourist arrivals to the country.

Citing 2007 statistics, he said while tourist arrivals in Malaysia was 24.9 million, the outflow of Malaysians was about 20 million.

This changing travelling landscape in Malaysia alone makes it clear that Malaysia is not asking a one-way traffic but that new opportunities are already there to help each other gain by tapping into each other's tourist market for mutually profitable tourism.

There were eight categories in the Diplomatic Tourism Awards, namely:

-favourite asian cuisine restaurant; favourite western cuisine restaurant;

-favourite entertainment outlet; favourite spa; favourite hotel/resort;

-favourite shopping complex and favourite tourist destination.

Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA) (IATA: BKI, ICAO: WBKK) is located about 8 km from the city of Kota Kinabalu, the state capital of Sabah, Malaysia. It is the second busiest airport in Malaysia after Kuala Lumpur International Airport with around 4 million passengers using this airport annually for domestic and international flights. It is also the main gateway into the state of Sabah. In 2006, about 2 million unique tourists visited Sabah, and it is estimated that this number will exceed 2.5 million by the end of 2007.

Terminal 1

Terminal 1 is the main terminal of KKIA. It is accessed via Jalan Putatan in Petagas nearby Kepayan. Currently its technical facilities includes 12 gates, 5 airbridges, and 4 baggage claim belts. It has the capacity of handling 2.5 million passenger annually. It also features duty-free shops, other shops, lounges, travel agents, restaurants, and many others. It is currently undergoing a massive renovation and expansion (see above). Malaysia Airlines is the main operating airline in this terminal.

* Asiana (Seoul-Incheon)
* Cathay Pacific
- Dragonair (Hong Kong)
* Domodedovo Airlines Charter
* Far Eastern Air Transport (Taipei-Taiwan Taoyuan)
* Korean Air (Seoul-Incheon) Seasonal
* Layang Layang Aerospace Regional
* Malaysia Airlines (Kuala Lumpur, Kuching, Labuan, Miri, Sandakan, Tawau, Bandar Seri Begawan, Cebu, Guangzhou, Kaoshiung, Hong Kong, Manila, Seoul-Incheon, Singapore, Taipei-Taoyuan, Tokyo-Narita)
* Royal Brunei (Bandar Seri Begawan)
* Singapore Airlines
- Silk Air (Singapore)
* TransAsia Airways (Taipei-Taiwan Taoyuan) Charter

Terminal 2

What is today Terminal 2 used to be the original terminal building of the airport when it was first built. It is accessed via Jalan Mat Salleh in Tanjung Aru and is located on the other side of the runway from Terminal 1. Terminal 2 has recently undergone a major renovation and extension and it re-opened on January 1, 2007 in conjunction with Visit Malaysia Year 2007. Although it is renovated to serve the low cost carriers, namely AirAsia, it is not a low cost carrier terminal (LCCT) as that of Kuala Lumpur International Airport, as other full service airlines may use the terminal.[6] It has 26 check-in counters for domestic and international flights and six parking bays for B737 and A320 aircraft as well as seven luggage x-ray machines, a VIP room and 13 immigration counters. AirAsia will make Kota Kinabalu the main hub for flights from China to Malaysia due to Kota Kinabalu being the nearest Malaysian hub to China.

AirAsia is expected to start flying to Shenzen, Xiamen, Hong Kong, Vietnam and Indonesia in 2007. Sabah Government is optimistic in targeting more visitors from Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, South Korea, Japan and Russia.

* AirAsia (Kuala Lumpur, Johor Bahru, Kuching, Manila-Clark, Miri, Penang, Sandakan, Tawau, Macau)
- Thai AirAsia (Bangkok-Suvarnabhumi)
* FlyAsianXpress (Bintulu, Kudat, Labuan, Lahad Datu, Lawas, Limbang, Miri, Mulu, Sandakan, Sibu)
* Transmile Air Services Cargo
