Tourism Malaysia's new state director Mohd Izal Mohd Nor said the booths would be built in Sungai Perak, Tapah, Ipoh, Taiping, Kuala Kangsar, Lumut, Pangkalan Hulu and Pang- kor.
“We hope to complete the booths this year.
“Tourist police will man the booths to han-dle inquiries from visitors and help them lodge police reports,” he said during the farewell gathering and handover of duties ceremony for outgoing director Rohaiza Haris in Ipoh re-cently.
He said the booths would be built with the cooperation of the police.
Mohd Izal said he planned to organise international-level events to attract visitors, especially foreign tourists to Perak.
He also said he planned to promote sports tourism as the state had many sports facilities.
