Half-minute video can win you trip to Floating Coral Bar Pitas

15th January, 2019

By PAUL MU

KOTA KINABALU: Holidaymakers can win an exclusive day trip worth RM1,769 to the newly discovered destination ‘The Floating Coral Bar, Pitas’ in northern Sabah.

All they needed to do is to produce a 30-second video clip showing any places of interest in Sabah to earn the tickets for two persons, Borneo Holiday & Vehicles Rental Sdn Bhd director Faye Robert (pic) said yesterday.

The video clips should be uploaded on their social media such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. The winner will be decided based on the most likes received on the three combined accounts, said Faye whose company is organising the contest for the third time.

The first one was a 3D/2N stay in Pulau Mantanani and Karambunai Villa, and followed by a 2D/1N to climb Mount Kinabalu in recent years.

The latest contest starts from Jan 5 to Feb 10. The result will be announced on Feb 15. The tour is tentatively held on Feb 25-27, where the winner will travel together with an entourage of models for videographing and photo-shooting, she said.

“We are trying to promote the coral bay before it is officially opened for visitors in March this year as we want to introduce new places for the tourists to enjoy,” Faye said.

The contest aims to create awareness that Sabah have many destinations for visitors to explore, she said.

“The participants might have destinations that we don’t know or are unaware of, so from their submissions, we could find out and conduct some inspections later,” she said.

Faye is striving to introduce new attraction spots in Sabah as based on feedback from the World Travel Mart Fair in London that she attended, visitors are looking for something new instead of the traditional places such as Kundasang, Pulau Mantanani and others.

“The Europeans are very concerned with our security situation especially in Semporna, they will always ask about the actions taken by our government to safeguard the visitors,” she shared.

Besides that, she will also be attending the International Travel Trade Show Berlin, Germany to look for new markets in Europe and India.
