The state government via Tourism Perak today launched the Perak Bikers Trail pamphlet as an initiative to introduce attractive tourism products of the state.
“This Tourism Integrity Tour of SPRM Perak (JIPS) 2.0, which begins from March 23 till 25, is made possible by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (SPRM) together with several strategic partners including Tourism Perak.
“To facilitate the tour, the pamphlet provides the QR code of 15 districts in the state. Users can scan the QR code at any destination of choice via their smartphones.
“Users will be able to see the infographic highlighting information on tourism products such as accommodation, dining spots, recreational spots and a simplified map of the district,” said Executive Councillor for Housing, Local Government and Tourism, Dato’ Nolee Ashilin binti Dato’ Mohammed Radzi after flagging off the motorcycle convoy of 60 participants at the premises of SPRM Ipoh this morning.
Tourism Perak had held a similar programme in November 2017 called Perak International Bike Week (PIBW) together with several motorcycle clubs. The programme had involved hundreds of participants from a few countries such as Singapore, Thailand, Brunei and Indonesia.
Present was CEO of Tourism Perak, Nurmalis Musa.
Meanwhile, Director of SPRM Perak, Dato’ Mohd Fauzi Mohamad stated that the JIPS 2.0 programme has become an ideal platform to spread the anti-corruption message besides instilling the culture in the daily lives of the people.
“A more pragmatic approach is introduced by improving the content of the activities and retaining the involvement of the local authorities (PBT) as a strategic partner of SPRM Perak.
“The approach of promoting tourism locations becomes the next agenda by holding a few gatherings at attractive tourism spots like YDP Lake at Slim River, Daun Kering Cafe at Kampar, Labu Kubong Homestay at Lenggong and Royal Belum at Gerik.”
The 15 districts which are tourism hotspots in the Perak Bikers Trail are Kerian, Selama, Taiping, Pengkalan Hulu, Gerik, Lenggong, Kuala Kangsar, Ipoh, Batu Gajah, Perak Tengah, Tanjung Malim, Kampar, Tapah, Manjung and Teluk Intan.
