    Friends from Mulu Tours

    by AlbuqRay Written Apr 30, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Although there are different "show" tour providers at Mulu, the small groups end up being combined. You meet the same people, share the adventure and become friends. Almost inevitably you see them again at the Mulu Cafe. I met people from all over the world, including Brunei, Kuala Lumpur, England, and Australia.

    something about Brunei

    by cochinjew Written Jan 31, 2009

    Favorite thing: There is a bus that leaves from Miri and goes to Kuala Belait. It is a lovely little town, quiet. you could stay there one night and explore the nearby kampongs and a river trip. check my KB tips. and then there are direct buses to BSB from KB.. ricketty buses but gets you there and very cheap. in brunei you could stay , see my tips on BSB, and see the water village and the magnificent mosques. you can either go to Labuan and fly out of there or fly out of Brunei via air asia to KL and then to Singapore that would be cheaper than flying one way BSB singapore..
    I enjoy the slow bus ride from Miri and for other reasons, like KB also. Brunei is an unusual country in that part of the world.

    Forests and development

    by SLLiew Written Nov 7, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: When flying over Sarawak, one can see miles and miles of virgin thick rainforests, then clearing of logging of timber and acres of oil palm.

    The demarcation can be startling which makes one wonder how much rainforests need to be preserved, how much to be logged and cleared for development.

    Anyway, it is great to be able to see the natural rainforests of Sarawak and stay in 5 stars hotels at the same time.

    West Malaysian Entering Sarawak

    by SLLiew Written Oct 5, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: In my first visit to Sarawak, I was surprised that as a fellow citizen from Peninsular Malaysia, I still need my passport and got a stamp with a limited conditional stay.

    Nowadays, you can use your Mykad identification and fill up a form or apply for Restricted Travel Document.

    Markets

    by DanielF Updated Aug 18, 2006

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: While doing trekking in the jungle, we occasionaly stopped at local markets to buy some food. All of them displayed exotic products and delicious fruits for ridiculous prices. It was a real pleasure to buy our groceries there. These pictures are from the local market in Serian, a small town in the middle of Sarawak.

    Dead Tree

    by muddybok Updated Jun 28, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: You will see some dead trees drown in the lake or dam. This thing cannot be avoided in order to create more water catchments.

    Although I am a nature lover, but human needs are always been top (#1) priority. But that does not mean that I'll support slash and burn that commonly practice by some orang asli (native).

    Hidden secret

    by muddybok Written Jun 4, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: You don't normally find these great picnic sites with clear road sign & mostly hidden by thick bushes right next to some normal express ways.

    You really need some local to show you the place & normally just about 2-5 minutes trekking from where you park.

    Be sure to lock your car before you proceed to picnic spot.

    Sarawak's Infrastructures

    by muddybok Written Apr 8, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Contrary to what most people believe that Sarawak is very much underdeveloped. Even some West Malaysian thinks so.

    This picture will prove that Sarawak is very much catching up in everything that happening around the globe.

    This picture is taken from the overhead pedestrian bridge connecting the two museum blocks.

    NO SWEAT

    by BerniShand Written Jul 21, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Borneo is very hot and the humidity is teriffically high. Its difficult to tell if you are sweating or the moisture in the air is making you damp........but it is very easy to get dehydrated. We found that taking a sachet of Diralite or any rehydration suppliment each day helped us to cope much better with the climate....and this tip works for any hot country

    Fondest memory: The people of Borneo so friendly, dont seem to want a tip, dont pressure you to buy anything and made us feel so welcome in their beautiful country
