Students gain insights into cultural tourism
Laksamana College of Business (LCB) International Tourism Management, Events Management and KCB Airline Hospitality Business students recently experienced tourism ‘in action’ during a field trip to Alai Gayoh Anak Pulau (HAGAP) in Kampong Bukit Udal, Tutong.
They were brought for an overnight trip to Alai Gayoh Anak Pulau to learn about cultural tourism and the Dusun ethnic group.
On the first day, they toured a mini museum around a longhouse followed by a talk on Brunei Dusun Materials Culture and Linguistic by Benson bin Tunggong and Haji Mohammed Syafien bin Yandol.
On the second day, they went on a biodiversity walk led by ASEAN’s Brunei Biodiversity Hero (ABBH) and a number of guides. They also learnt to play Dusun traditional music from Benson, who was assisted by Eyad Samhan Haji Mohammed Syafien.
The visit was part of the students’ module aimed to add context and substance to study materials and reinforces concepts learned throughout the academic years.
