The night’s theme revolved around the famous Sarawak folklore of Puteri Santubong.

STB’s chief executive officer Sharzede Salleh Askor, in a press release said, that the media was given an insight to what the state had to offer. 

“This media night programme is certainly in line with our belief that the approach to tourism should be to provide a life-enhancing experience known as ‘Experiential Tourism’ where the better the experience, the better a destination stands out from others.”
