Sabah is trully blessed with numerous nature based tourism products from Malaysia's first World Heritage Site, Mt Kinabalu to the world largest orang utan rehabilitation centre, Sepilok to Sukau and Danum Valley, the only places in the world to have ten species of primates within one locality, and not forgetting world renowned dive spots in Sipadan Island and Layang Layang.
Within this website you will find a wealth of information on all these eco-destinations and more in Sabah as well as the full list of MATTA members who are accredited to the government (with KKKP license).
To the potential tourists and wholesalers who wish to promote or come to Sabah, it will be advisable to note that there are different categories of MATTA membership - namely ticketing, outbound, inbound, any two or all three of the above. For example, if you are interested to come to Sabah for a holiday, look for an inbound tour operator. Some inbound tour operators are specialists while others handle mass tourism. Some handle back packers while others handle niche markets such as ecotourism and incentives. This website will make it easier for you to seek out those tour operators which best suit your needs.
To MATTA members it is my hope that as guardians and promoters of these eco-destinations you will zealously guard them and develop them sustainably and that you will comply to the MATTA Code of Ethics in your business conduct at all times.
MATTA-Sabah Chapter website will also now have a members area for discussions and circulation of news for distribution. All members are therefore encouraged to capitalise on this new tool to market yourselves on the internet. This is your website.
Best wishes in the new millennium.
