Authorities advise high-risk tenting areas in Kedah to quickly shut


ALOR SETAR, Dec 18 (Reuters) – High-risk camping and vacation areas in Kedah have been ordered to be temporarily closed during this monsoon season to prevent unwanted incidents.

State Tourism, Arts and Culture Committee chairman Mohd Firdaus Ahmad said the tourism department is collecting data on the number of camping and holiday areas at risk and will bring it to the Exco meeting on Wednesday.

“I will present this proposal paper at the Exco meeting and a press conference will be held afterwards,” he said in a statement today.

Meanwhile, Mohd Firdaus also advised the public to choose a low-risk holiday destination for the time being. — Bernama
