Also went to Semenggoh Nature Reserve to see orang utans and a Bidayuh Longhouse with a tourist guide that charged us RM150 per person.
At Bidayuh Longhouse, there is a head house where the head trophies are placed.
The picture below shows the Bidayuhs’ lifestyle in the longhouse.
We also went to Gunung Gading National Park but saw only one rafflesia (not so big). Unfortunately, my camera had no battery that time and I was unable to snap shots of the big flower. We went there by bus through Lundu town which charge us RM10 one way per person. From Lundu town, we took a white bas sewa to the national park for RM10 one way. The entry fee to the national park is RM10. Overall, the cost of going there is only RM50 per person.
We lived in a budget hotel and the budget hotel price is from RM45 onwards. We had good food also where our friend from Kuching treated us to seafood. The fried oyster at Kuching is different from the Penang fried oyster where the oyster was fried like a big keropok (cracker) and the oyster stick on the keropok.
We also ate laksa sarawak, its soup was like curry mee soup only brown in colour and also cook with coconut milk. It is cooked with mihun with prawn and chicken meat.
Also ate mee kolok. Nothing special about mee kolok, only cooked mee mixed with soya sauce. The price of a bowl of mee is similar to Penang’s price which ranges from RM2.50 to RM3.00.
Hope I have the chance to come back to Sarawak as I wish to visit Bako National Park. With AirAsia, average people like me can also travel, hope AirAsia expands its network so that traveling to all tourist attraction countries is possible, I am just waiting to fulfill my dreams.
