Travel Event | Tourism Pahang Blogger Event

Recently I was invited by Pahang Tourism to attend a Tourism Pahang Blogger colloquium. Having doing marketing for many years, I was truly excited of this invitation as it gives me a chance to see, hear and learn how this other side think, work and execute. This will give me a balance feel of being the organizer as well as attendees and apply the best of both world in passion - traveling & blogging.

Us #MalaysiaTravelBlogger (Noremila, Yafielda, Jard and Rayyan) depart KL at mid day and arrives Kuantan on time just before the evnt kick-off at 3pm. Dato’ Shafik Fauzan bin Shariff, the Pahang State Minister for Tourism Malaysia welcomes us with an open arm offering Pahang's best hospitality. Fraser’s Hill Development Corporation (Perbadanan Kemajuan Bukit Fraser – PKBF) manages Pahang Tourism activities

Dato’ Shafik enlightens us on how Tourism Pahang is now focusing not only on traditional media but also on Social Media (SoMe) as the current trend where mobility and information are at finger tip come to play. Wanting to be abreast with technology, Pahang Tourism is now opening its door to bloggers as their new target broadcaster. Pahang Tourism sees the need to branch out; and with us from #MalaysiaTravelBlogger they are able to cast a wider net; thus touching directly to end-users - travelers, tourist, adventure-seeker and naturist. Having said that, Dato’ Shafik is humbled to any recommendation by us from #MalaysiaTravelBlogger to further help improve Pahang Tourism. Knowing that bloggers can be their extended SoMe arm with other communication coverage such as twitter, facebook, instagram etc aside from blog.

We were fortunate to be the first few with the opportunity to catch a glimpse of Tourism Pahang new and revamped website shared by the CEO of Secretlab.Media, Mohd Khairul Azizi Mohd Razali. Recognizing the importance of SoMe he consolidated and integrated SoMe buttons - make sharing easy. Tourism Pahang site has definitely improved with its revamped website made by Mohd Khairul Azizi, now with us bloggers; they hope it can improve further. However, the site is still under final construction and will be released soon. 

We were delighted to share our experiences participating in media/blogger events and state tourism activities which we hope that Pahang Tourism will be able to emulate thus garnering favourable visibility for tourism in Pahang.

Aside, Tourism Pahang also brought Azwan and Fatin Suhana as a guest speaker to share some blog successes and SoMe ethics. Very enlightening indeed.

Being a state that have the best of both world - land & sea, I am ceratinly looking forward to some snorkeling, diving, hiking, nature walk and caving soon.

Pahang. A trully complete tropical experience.
