MORE tourists are expected to visit Tasik Kenyir in Hulu Terengganu following the launch of two bus services from the lake to Johor Baru and Kuala Perlis.

Four super VIP buses costing RM1.6mil have been bought for the purpose by Central Terengganu Development Authority (Ketengah).

Terengganu Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh said he hoped the services would get a good response from the public.

“We hope more people from Johor, Singapore, Kedah and Langkawi will visit the scenic man-made lake,” he said after inspecting the buses at Bandar Al Muktafi Billah Shah in Dungun on Sunday.

He said that Express Kenyir had been operating seven buses plying daily from Tasik Kenyir to Kuala Lumpur since 1997.

Ketengah general manager Abdul Ghani Che Man said that more tourists were expected to visit the lake following the Government’s move to declare two off days per week for civil servants.

The service to the two destinations begins today.

The bus from Tasik Kenyir will head to Johor Baru via Kuala Berang, Kuala Terengganu, Dungun and Mersing. The fare is RM39.10 per adult.

The fare from Kuala Terengganu to Johor Baru is RM33.90 per adult.

The second service from Tasik Kenyir to Kuala Perlis will pass through Kuala Berang, Kuala Terengganu, Jerteh, Sungai Petani, Kangar and Kuala Perlis. The fare is RM42.55 per adult.

The fare from Kuala Terengganu to Kuala Perlis is M37.35 per adult.
