TAWAU: Given a large variety of dried seafood products for sale at the Tawau Tanjung Market, Member of Parliament for Tawau, Datuk Christina Liew suggested that it be a made a `must-visit’ place for tourists from China and other countries.

She made the suggestion during her Chinese New Year (CNY) walkabout at the dry and wet markets, today during a fruitful two-day visit to the Tawau Parliamentary constituency.

“It is high time to promote Tawau’s dried seafood products. Tour operators should consider taking tourists to the Tawau Tanjung Market, among other places of interest,” she said, adding that some of them are being exported to the Peninsula.
