Nature in Bintulu
Don your hiking boots and trek through the lush jungle at Similajau National Park. As you meander through the vegetation, look out for the resident wildlife, which includes gibbons, macaques, and saltwater crocodiles. After, head to Taman Tumbina Bintulu, a zoological garden home to Borneo sun bears, deer, and a variety of bird species. Clamber the park’s hill for gorgeous vistas over the South China Sea.
Street Food in Bintulu
Explore the tastes of the Sarawak region with a visit to the street food stalls of Tanjung Batu Beach Bintulu. Very reasonably priced, the food is best enjoyed while savouring the ocean views. Remember to end of the meal with ais cendol, shaved ice with coconut milk, palm sugar and other delicious toppings. Alternatively, head to Pasar Malam Bintulu, the daily night market to sample traditional Malay cuisine. It’s also a good place to pick up a souvenir or two.
