New Straits Times, 16 June 2006

Lembah Bujang, home to one of the country’s oldest and richest archaeological sites, is poised to become the latest gem in the State’s tourism treasure trove.

Realising its potential as a major tourist attraction, Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid has invited local archaeologists and historians to help design a blueprint for the development of Lembah Bujang. He said the first meeting on this would be held next week.
