“Sarawak is known for its rich biodiversity, cultures as well as talents which can be highlighted in films or dramas without high costs.

“Here, it is considered as an open natural studio for filming purposes. Hence, I hope the industry players will take this opportunity (to shoot their movies here).” – The Borneo Post
