KUALA TERENGGANU – Pantai Batu Buruk, a famed beach area which spans about 48 hectares here has been gazetted the first smoke-free tourism spot in the country, effective July 1.
State Health Director Dr Mohammad Omar said visitors to the area will be issued compounds if they are found smoking.
“During these three months, we will use educational enforcement where the enforcers will issue warnings to the visitors who smoke in the area.
“After this, visitors who persist on smoking will be issued compounds,” he told reporters after visiting Pantai Batu Burok here today where warning posters were being put up.
He added that the no-smoking ruling would be imposed in stages in public parks and beach areas in the country and enforced by the State Health Departments. – BERNAMA
