Pekan Nabalu Tourism Information Centre

Nabalu Tourism Information Centre

As part of the Community Based Tourism in Sabah, plans to set up the Pekan Nabalu Tourism Information Centre are on the way.

This is excellent news for the local communities around Nabalu and the greater Kinabalu area, as the tourist information centre will highly benefit local tourism here.

Pekan Nabalu is a popular stopping point for travellers to Kinabalu Park and an ideal starting point for visitors to explore the area's eco, cultural and agricultural tourism attractions and activities.

Assistant Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Joniston Bangkuai said the tourism centre initiative aligns with plans to organise a Pineapple and Fruit Festival at Pekan Nabalu.

With that, the vision of promoting rural tourism in the Kiulu, Kadamaian and Kinabalu areas will complement each other. Joniston also said;

"Having the Pekan Nabalu Tourism Information Centre would help promote and enhance the overall tourism experience for visitors. The Ministry has also recognised the significance of Pekan Nabalu as a strategic location and believes that the centre will play a pivotal role in enhancing the tourism infrastructure and offerings in the area.

Moreover, CoBT has been gaining momentum with the active involvement of local villagers. The tourism centre can further strengthen this engagement, providing valuable information and services to tourists planning to explore the area’s natural wonders, adventure opportunities, and culture.

The tourism centre will facilitate access to nature-based farms, plantations and agro-tourism sites, offering visitors a unique opportunity to learn about local farming practices, participate in fruit picking, and sample fresh produce,”.

For those visiting Kinabalu in the future, you can soon stop at the Pekan Nabalu Tourism Information Centre once it's opened.

There is no set date on when this TIC will open, but it will likely take around one to two years.
