I am currently in Malaysia, checking out new responsible tourism destinations and initiatives.
After spendind 2 days in Malacca with Serge Jardin (the Snail House), I relaxed 2 days with my family at the Sunset Beach Resort in Langkawi.
I am going tomorrow to Penang to check out the new bunch of heritage boutique hotels and B&B newly opened since 2009 . If in a hurry check them out on Penang Tourism Information website and on Tripadvisor for customers reviews.
Then I will travel to Sabah.
We are working very hard to improve Greenselipar.
After this first year and reaching more than 20 000 visitors, we need to think about Greenselipar’s future.
I am now in Europe for a few month to meet the professionals of Responsible Tourism there and find out how to strengthen and develop the project.
Sorry, but you won’t find many events and news in Malaysia. Our good adresses are still available on line : check them out through the menu on top or through the categories.
For Earth Day KLUE selected Greenselipar among the 10 Top Green initiatives in Malaysia.
