Sarawak is almost literally still chasing its own tail as far as the state of its tourism prospects goes. The state is not doing enough to tap the tourism market, especially during the Golden Week holiday season in early October which saw tourists from China fanning out across the globe.                   

The Sarawak Tourism Federation (STF) recently warned that the state stands to lose RM5 mil in direct tourism revenue alone next year because of group travel cancellations following the reduction in flight frequencies into the Gunong Mulu National Park, a Unesco World Heritage site.
