    Ride a small canoe along the quiet river and meet a couple of local people coming back from fishing to the ridges of the conservation. Watch the dropping of Orang Utan foods and it's "fiesta" time for these orangutans.

    floating houses

    All the way across the riverside there are pile houses. It is a complete city. The moment whe were there it was dry season and the water was really low. But that changes quickly after some rain.

    You will find small shops , churches , ....

    And on the river you will see floating houses as well. (picture)

    nanka

    If you are a caucasian white male from about 1,90 meter YOU will become the major tourist attraction in town. Don't freak out if they touch you on the bus , or where ever. No harm in it. Most times they strike with a finger along you leg or arm.
    If you are a blond??? haha go and find out.

    The kalimantese must be the smallest people on the archipelago Indonesia.

    A must do activity

    Since it was NANKA (jack fruit) season you could get them everywhere. It taste a bit like peach and has a really warm overwhelming smell. It contains lots of piths with a soft fleshy part around it.
    JUST TRY IT IT WAS MY FAVOURITE

    longhouse museum

    I didn't exactly new how to call this part. It is more open and it has wide concrete streets.

    A lot of buildings are official ones , like the house of the governor...
    You will also find the head office of the bni Bank.

    We also found this dayak-longhousemuseum. But we didn't get in once.
    So I can't tell you something usefull about it.

    The three major parts....the center

    the open part of the marked

    To discribe Palanka raya , I have to divide it into three parts.

    -the center : this contains the covered marked and the markeds around the streets. The covered marked is a smelly jungle of small alleys. You can find food , clothes , kitchenware....fruit , dried fish. It is broiling hot inhere and you can Imagen the smell when the waist is trown into the alleys. (but be brave and go in , quit an adventure)
