Modes of water transport

The last few days has seen us take to the water in a number of ways.

Our expedition to Mulu involved some motorised long boats which sped us from our base in Mulu along the Melinau River to Henry’s village and to both Deer and Lang caves. Quite an experience just getting in and buckling up let alone the rapids (ok.. perhaps just the odd riffle!)

We took to the water again last night in one of the little passenger ferries across the Kuching River to explore the other side from the hotel giving us the opportunity to walk back across the fabulous bridge. Not a long crossing by any means but the ferryman could see we all knew what we were doing!

On Wednesday we must have looked like true professionals. Arriving at the jetty early in the morning we clambered into boats that skimmed the surface of both the Bako and Kuching Rivers at high speed taking us for yet another adventure on the Muara Tebas peninsula and Bako National Park.

Those that weren’t sure about about water transport before are now all very enthusiastic sailors!!

    I’m not to sure about my daughters sea legs but fair play you are certainly packing it all in as well as the oh so important work! Thank you Simon, thank you Tengku for making this all possible and I’m sure we aren’t the only parents to think this! Make the most of everything around you, enjoy and take notes

    I totally agree Gareth. I could only but dream of giving this experience to my family. Thank you so much for all of you for making it happen. Certainly the trip of a lifetime.

    Totally agree with Gareth. Thanks you Simon, Zoe, Jane and everyone in Malaysia- wow wow wow.
    Love checking in ever day and always feel totally in awe of your trip and a bit emotional ( although this could be envy).
    Missing my daughter very much but so glad she’s having this amazing opportunity.
