THIRTY areas in the Tutong District have been identified for development as tourist attractions, Wardi bin Haji Mohammad Ali, the Tutong District Officer, said yesterday.
He said some of the sites require additional “touches” and facilities before they can be open to the public.
He highlighted the district’s tourism potential during a briefing on the ‘One Village One Product’ programme for 17 students, who are participating in the Brunei Darussalam Undergraduates Civic Village Programme.
He spoke about one of the tourism projects, the recently-installed Sungai Tutong landmark sign situated across the river from Pekan Tutong.
The sign, he said, is made from recycled wood and lights up using solar panels.
During the briefing, Dayang Siti Joriahati, Senior Special Duties Officer of Tutong District Office, said that there are 50 products under the ‘One Village One Product’ programme in Tutong District. Some of the products are Maruku, chili sauce, cakoi, banana crackers, watermelons and corn.
