SUNGAI LEMBING: Develop historic area with care
I WAS impressed by the series of articles the New Straits Times on the plans for the development of Sungai Lembing as a major tourist attraction in the near future.
In developing and promoting the place, I hope the authorities bear in mind a few things. Most important is having proper signs. There must be big, clear signs to the various tourist spots.
Next, the path to the delightful Sungai Lembing Museum should be user-friendly. At the moment, it is a steep climb up, certainly not encouraging visitors. Shallow steps with small landings will help the elderly or disabled to get to the museum.
Please do not cut down the beautiful old trees in the town centre, near the food court.
Lastly, I was dismayed that the most historic structure concerning the tin mine, the office (or factory), near the tunnel had been dismantled and sold for scrap metal.
