Women-Only Waterfall Planned For Terengganu

A conservative Malaysian state will establish a waterfall site exclusively for women to picnic and bathe, to attract Middle Eastern tourists to holiday there, a report said.

Terengganu state's chief minister said the initiative was prompted by requests from Middle Eastern countries, whose strict Islamic practices prohibit women from bathing in the presence of men.

'We are still looking for the appropriate site. Only women can patronise that area, no men would be allowed,' Mr Ahmad Said told the Star daily on Friday.

'Tourists from certain West Asian countries are also keen for us to establish an exclusive picnic site for women,' he said.

The state on Malaysia's east coast, lapped by the waters of the South China Sea, is a popular tourist destination for its white sand beaches, turtle sanctuaries and waterfall sites.

Muslim Malaysians, who make up the majority of the multi-ethnic population, often swim at the beach or waterfalls, with women typically fully clothed in long pants and dark blouses.

Mr Ahmad said there were also plans to employ an all-women team to manage the site, including female security guards.

Malaysia's thriving tourism industry has seen a sharp rise in the number of big-spending tourists coming from the Middle East in recent years, attracted by the tropical country's Islamic image.

The tourism ministry is eyeing 400,000 tourists from Middle Eastern countries this year, state Bernama news agency reported citing tourism officials.

In 2007, Arab tourists contributed about US$500 million (S$676 million) to the total tourism revenue. (The Straits Times, Singapore)

"Mother of all problem" in Terengganu is planning. Why women only waterfall??? Want to attract PAS supporter?
Make sure the name of the famous brainchild must be curve to a big stone signboard, so if the project became white elephant he who will be remember in "Hari Ini Dalam Sejarah".

If the koridor gajah putih go ahead, Here I offer my proposal to create this women only waterfall:

1. With just one photo obtain by Mat Skodeng (plenty here), whole waterfall became haram.
My cheap offer price 1000 million (plenty royalty money now) needed to create thick and high 80 footer wall slightly higher than great wall at both side along the river length to be skodeng proof. The Mats' are proven to outclimb monkey ,so the wall shall not lower then jungle trees.

2. 500 million to build roti fish food processing plant. Women visitor are more prone to make mistake when they forgot their breastfeeding baby is baby boy. so instead of throwing it away, it might add additional protein ingredients to fish food.
