Sabah Agro-Tourism Places

The introduction of twelve agro-tourism products in Sabah underscores the state's emergence as a thriving rural tourism destination.

These carefully curated products, selected for their sustainable practices, are dispersed throughout North Borneo, offering visitors diverse experiences that celebrate Sabah's rich agricultural heritage. 

Led by a state rural tourism joint steering committee comprising representatives from various ministries, including Tourism, Culture, Agriculture, Fisheries, and Rural Development, the initiative aims to elevate Sabah's rural tourism sector by fostering collaboration and implementing effective strategies.
