Taman Tasik Titiwangsa to be ‘The Place’ in the City

KUALA LUMPUR: Taman Tasik Titiwangsa will be turned into the latest tourist destination in the city, in conjunction with Visit Malaysia 2007.

Deputy Tourism Minister Datuk Donald Lim Siang Chai said the Government wanted to make the former mining lake and its surroundings a happening spot to attract both local and foreign tourists.

The main attraction is the 60m-high “Eye on Malaysia” ferris wheel launched last Saturday. Several programmes will also be lined up for the lake area.

“The ministry will work closely with other related bodies to plan interesting activities and programmes at the lake,” he told reporters after launching the “Deng Nai Rong” oil painting exhibition at Wisma Kebudayaan Soka Gakkai Malaysia here yesterday.

“We want it to be ‘the place’ in the city, where visitors can enjoy the beautiful lake and the breathtaking view of the capital,” Lim said.

On another matter, Lim said the ministry had held discussions with the police on ways to beef up security at popular tourist destinations nationwide.

“I was told that the number of policemen patrolling such areas will increase from 300 to 2,000,” he added.
