Here's more info on the Kuching Amazing Hunt 2008:


OBJECTIVE

It’s actually a MAH Sarawak Chapter annual event created as an alternative to the annual Sarawak Inter-Hotel Cultural & Ethnic Dance Competition which was held last year. So the idea of this Amazing Hunt was mooted and planned for the hotel industry staffs to get together as well as to promote and create awareness of the various tourist attractions and places of interest in and around Kuching and of course to do it with fun. Unlike the Cultural & Ethnic Dance Competition which is only restricted to member hotels, this Amazing Hunt will be open to our fellow tourism industry players and also the general public.

We also plan to work with the main tourism bodies such as the Sarawak Tourism Board (STB) and Sarawak Convention Bureau (SCB) to organize and promote this Amazing Hunt on a larger scale and maybe incorporate it as one of Kuching’s annual international tourism event if this proves successful.
