KOTA KINABALU: Over 500 million viewers in China are expected to tune in on their television sets to watch the uniqueness of Sabah when the ‘Youth of China 3-Nanyang Classroom’ goes on air in December.

The children’s reality television show involving 32 kids from different parts of China are coming to Sabah for the location shooting, said Dato’ Seri Winston Liaw.

Liaw who is the Sabah Association of Tour & Travel Agents chairman said this is the third season of the series which consists of eight episodes.

“And four of the episodes will be filmed in Sabah. The places involved are Kota Kinabalu, Kudat, Kundasang, Tenom, Ranau and Keningau,” said Liaw during a courtesy call on Kota Kinabalu Mayor Datuk Yeo Boon Hai at his office yesterday.

Yeo has also been invited to write a script on Kota Kinabalu where he will highlight City Hall concept of providing free bicycle rides.

The Mayor will also teach the children the aspect of safety-ride around the city.

“This is a very good chance for the China Central TV (CCTV) to promote Sabah. As the tourism non-governmental organisation we will try to provide the assistance to the production team,” said Liaw.

The filming in Sabah is expected to take 11 days to complete, he said, adding that they will meet Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Seri Panglima Masidi Manjun on July 14.

The shooting by CCTV’s Discovery Channel will start on Aug 1-21. The filming also covers Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Johor and Penang.

Also present during the courtesy call were CCTV producer Chen Shiyue and Malaysia producer Dino Goh and Joshua Lai.
