Lee, B.T. (2005) Ecotourism, Foreign Tourist Perception, and National Parks: The Case in Northeast Langkawi. Malaysian Journal of Science, 24. pp. 205-212. ISSN 13943065Full text not available from this repository.
Scientists from the University of Malaya have suggested that the northeast of Langkawi be declared as a national park by virtue of its great diversity. This paper argues that this suggestion is strengthened by adopting a dual approach of nature conservation and ecotourism. Some issues of ecotourism as it pertains to Northeast Langkawi are discussed. An analysis of tourist characteristics and perceptions shows a strong potential for ecotourism through the labelling of Northeast Langkawi as a national park.
