Luxury River Cruises in Borneo

| June 25, 2009

The infamous Pandaw River Cruises will venture into Borneo’s waters this July along Malaysia’s longest river, Rajang River. Measuring 640 km, it meanders from Sarawak to Indonesian region of Kalimantan. This eight-day expedition departs from Sibu city and makes stops at the river stations of Kanowit and Kapit where Brooke Raj forts and traditional Iban longhouses still stand, before navigating the Pelagus Rapids with its islands, reefs and shoals, and visiting Sarikei’s songket-weaving workshops. This will be the best opportunity for you to see in-person the live of ingenous people of Borneo.
