TEMERLOH: Come next year, the Pahang government will organize a “Re-Visit Pahang 2018” (RVP2018) programme as an extension of its tourism promotion efforts during Visit Pahang Year 2017 (VPY2017).

“One of the new attractions identified was Gunung Senyum in Maran, which is a choice destination for people who love rock climbing as it is challenging. He said RVP2018 would also help homestay and hotel operators as well as others who would benefit from the economic spillover. — Bernama
