星期一,22/05/2017 热天遇上热情,占尽天时地利先机拥有大自然生态的朱湖区开始吸引游客包租巴士来游玩,朱湖的旅游业等待振翅高飞! 森州同善福利协会日前受到直落甘望马华区会主席拿督斯里林振辉的盛情邀约,一行40多人在该会主席陈云欗的带领下,搭巴士来到朱湖区游玩,成为该区沉寂一段日子后,首批最大批的游客,重新认识朱湖这个旅游景点。 武吉不兰律区始终是朱湖区最重点介绍的旅游景点,这个地方在80至90年代因为养猪业蓬勃,曾经是森州重要的经济重镇,不幸在经历一场立百病毒浩劫导致养猪业毁灭,幸好居民改成发展农业,加上旅游业复苏,附近的工业发展,武吉不兰律开始有新的景象。 森州同善福利协会也不忘趁旅游的空档,配合由林振辉掌管的拿督林利星基金会,在当天捐献许多物资给有需要的弱势家庭,一面推动旅游一面做慈善,为当地不幸人士带来希望。 这个旅游团的行程首先是抵达丹A新村老店享用古早味早餐,品尝手工炒面、炸肉卷和手工肉包,过后参观新村里的火龙果园和鲍鱼菇园,亲手摘食已成熟的火龙果,过后就继续行程,前往双溪立百新村福龙宫拜神,并在村里的住家买著名肉干和肉丝,该村也有年轻人经营的汉堡包食档和西餐店。 一行人过后来到宁静的雪邦河岸,参观该区最新的景点“水上屋子”船屋,命名为“百吉の轩”船屋是使用逾百个水桶支撑浮在水面,让游客一面吹海风一面欣赏风景,并可以预先订购美食,晚上也可以前来眺望星空和喝啤酒。 他们过后乘船出海,沿岸欣赏红树林美景,可以看到老鹰在天空盘旋,红树林里也有一些海鸟栖息,由于该区靠近机场,抬头望向天空随时有飞机飞过,在这里游船河是一种享受。 团友们乘船一直到靠近朱湖发电厂的河口,经过下过港的渡船码头时,也一试横渡两州的滋味,这个渡河已有百年历史,他们也有下船在双溪比力的码头停靠,当地有许多猴子聚集,等待游客提供食物。 他们上船后就前往享用当地美食和购买土产,带着依依不舍的心情离开,他们返回家园后将会介绍更多亲朋好友来到这个集生态旅游和传统风味于一身的森州新旅游景点,相信以后每逢周末将有大批游客涌入。 我在很多年前心目中就有把朱湖打造为新旅游胜地的心愿,向国内外游客推广生态旅游,带动地方上的经济活动和增加就业机会,让一家大小回归大自然和提倡环保,朱湖区只要居民同心协力,它一定是一颗闪亮的明珠,成为本地著名旅游区。 游客来到这里不只是一日游,这里拥有许多民宿,游客欣赏田园风光也可以看日落,朱湖区有大大小小的舢舨头,有渔村、奎笼、河口钓鱼台,只要游客进来了,人民就会看到商机,各行各业都可以发展起来。 我时常在这里发掘到不同的旅游景点,每当和当地人闲聊就会得到灵感,“百吉の轩”船屋就是最成功的例子,我希望武吉不兰律朝向旅游业发展,让更多年轻人回归本地,这里靠近国际机场,也是大马宏愿谷的发展重地,遍地都是黄金发展机会。 朱湖区武吉不兰律绝对有潜质发展成为一个旅游景点,这里的环境优美,四周宁静,很多景点都让我们的团友留下深刻的印象。 我们也没有预料到武吉不兰律有如此的河岸美景,加上这里的美食和热情的居民,只要它的道路施设提升,相信会有更多巴士会载游客进来。 …
