Just came back from Redang island, hot sun, heavy rain, relax and exciting... that's what i can describe the trip. Redang beach, still as beautiful as two years ago... but there are more new resorts keep developing a long the natural beach side. I am not sure what will happen in 3 or 5 years later. I wish I could capture the most beautiful scenery before it's too late.
Bako National Park, was my 2nd day plan. About 70km away from Kuching city, visitor to Bako National Park per day was limited, and each group must guarded with a tour guide before taking a speed boat to the Bako island. A very natural rain forest and beach.
Kuching, the first impression was "Clean", a very clean city. Kuching is not a modern city, cause we can see a lots of old buildings arround the city. When reach to hotel, immediate plan for my next day trip. As I had planed, my first day journey will visit to Sarawak long house at Benuk village about 40km from the city.
haha, don't think 40km is near, I have to transit a bus on half way, when reach to the junction of the Benuk village, have to walk about 2km to enter the village. Although it's take me about 1 hour 45 min to reach, but it's realy open my eyes. haha.
Reached Sibu at 1:45pm, my next flight to Kuching was 5:00pm. Haha, only 3 hours 15 min to settle my office works and the short trip arround the city.
Sibu, first impression was clean but quite busy, I did noticed all signboards were included with chinese characters. Mostly chinese in city area and majority were Hoke Chew. Bilibala ... really no idea what were they talking about. : )
