Visitor cap being considered for Sabah islands


Another island group in Southeast Asia is planning to introduce a limit on visitor numbers to fight over tourism, reports Travelmole.

Officials want to manage the carrying capacity of the five islands of Tunku Abdul Rahman Park, situated off the East Malaysia coast near Kota Kinabalu.

The islands are planning to limit the numbers but that can only be done once they go online with selling entrance tickets.

Officials will discuss next steps with local tourism operators as well as representatives from the Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents and Sabah Association of Tour and Travel Agents.
