Trip to Sg. Passin Longhouse - Part 1 (Express Boat)

Traveling by express boat on the Rejang River is one of Sarawak's main attractions.

This is one of the best ways to get a taste of the state's interesting hinterland. On our trip to Sg. Passin longhouse, we had hired an express boat from Sibu to Sg. Passin.

This is how the seats of the express boat look like. The seats was categories into three cabin, First class, Business class and Economy class.

While the boat was leaving from the wharf, i challenged Bengbeng to climb upstairs to the boat instead of sitting inside air-conditioned express boat.

The view from the top of the express boat was really good. I enjoyed the view so much since the weather was good.

A while later, one of the team our member started to be a little bit dizzy.

The journey took us two and a half hours to reach our destination.

I've not heard of this place in Malaysia before, thanks for introducing it to us :P

So it's a 2 1/2hr boat ride from Penang?

chumpman said...

wow, dats a nice trip. you are lucky that the "motobot" (that's what we call 'em) are air-conditioned and covered well. Last time, on the way to Marudi from Miri, its not air conditioned and we have to open the window a little and when the motobot moves, the water splashed unto us. boy we are so wet that by the time we reached, we looked like we just went for a swim LOL
