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)more

We stumbled into the restaurant in November 2009 on our way to Pangkalan Bun. But it turned out to be a good choice as this small yet clean restaurant offers a lot of Local delicacies. My general comments to food in Kalimantan: go for the local fishes. It's delicious!!!
This restaurant offers grilled fishes (from Kalimantan river) such as Patin, Lais, Baung (not really recommended despite its excellent taste if you like fish without bones), Haruan, Jelawat, Pepuyu and Kalabau. The other cooking style is pepesan: fish or eggs of the fish wrapped in banana leaf, grilled or steamed)..
This place also offers typical vegetable dishes such as sayur santan, sayur nangka, sayur tumbukan daun singkong..
The price is overly cheap.. For three persons in November 09, we paid for Rp 61,000 (or 6 USD)..Wherelse could you get cheaper yet decent food...
Favorite Dish: I really enjoy my grilled patin.. The fat from the fish was so yummy..Related to:

It costs about Rp 500,000 (November 2009) to rent a speedboat full day to visit camp leakey. On the way, you could ask the driver to stop by for spots to look closer at the primates. If your lucky, you may find them on the trees along the river..My trip was arranged by a friend, but it should be easy to rent a boat in the Kumai harbor. Just ask...more
