Speaking to Sinar Daily, Nazri said that “if you know it (the floods) is (are) coming, then start planning now.”

He said that “maybe we can have voluntary tourism where people come to the country to help us with the floods.”

Malaysia faces annual rains that destroy houses and killed people through floods, with at least 14 people killed and more than 66,000 people displaced from their homes in the floods, in December last year.

On the annual floods in Kelantan, Nazri says that it is like a festival – he said: “Every monsoon, we have a flood festival, and people will come. Because now there is ‘voluntourism’, where foreigners come to do volunteer work and they pay (to buy tickets and so on).”

The Star also quoted him as saying “The Singaporeans will come because they spend only one-third of their salary and to them, our five or six star hotels are just so cheap.”
