First, the obligatory stroll along the Kemana River. Then, my patented visit to the Night Market. The highlight in Bintulu (pop 120,000), the Similajau National Park.
The trek through the mangrove jungle foliage begins at the warning sign for crocodiles and, following the red dots, continues up and down hills of various steep grades along root-encrusted paths, across streams spanned by nothing more than a wooden plank or two.
