There are white water rafting rivers in Sarawak, but they are all in the Kapit region, none near Kuching. Heard of them, never thought they were popular but surprise surprise, when I went white water rafting in Bali, the guide tells me stories of the crazy rafters from Sarawak, who raft the rapids there.

I thought Bali was just one isolated incident but while rafting in New Zealand, another guide tells me about the rafting experiences in Sarawak.

Sarawak truly is a hidden paradise. It's not only the rich privileged lot who like to keep it to themselves but the adventure junkies as well. Keeping it less commercialised makes it more pristine, more fresh, much more like an adventure of old.

Doubt if Bakun can be a proper tourism product, but amazingly, a drive along the Kuching-Serian Expressway will reveal not one, not two but more than five hot springs along that stretch. Just look out for the brown signs.

You can ask Borneo Adventures along the Main Bazaar, no website as far as I'm made aware.

versus browsing now using my "ahem.. future" iphone 3G & point at the link to get the information.

It's what we call 'human interaction'...you can find some information on this online, but like nearly everything in Malaysia, it's nearly close to impossible to find good, reliable, official information on the websites. Perhaps trip reports, some pictures, but that's about it.

Besides, you won't be walking under the sun, you'll be walking under the five foot way canopy, surrounded by antiques, curios and people selling layer cake. Getting information about white water rafting is like an adventure in itself!

p.s. There's some white water rafting or something similar to that along the Skrang-Lemanak rivers, akin to river safari but with rapids.

Sarawak plans to have world-class racing circuit
Thursday August 14, 2008




Taib: ‘We are looking at a 3.6 km racing track,
the minimum distance required for international recognition’

KUCHING: Sarawak will have its own world-class racing circuit to give locals an opportunity to take up motor sports, said Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud.

Taib said the state government would pursue all necessary efforts to ensure the project is included in the 10th Malaysia Plan in line with the nation’s objective to promote motor sports in the country.

“We are looking at a 3.6 km racing track, the minimum distance required for international recognition,” he told reporters after witnessing the sixth and final round of the MalaysiaAAMPetronas Sprinta Cub Prix at the Sarawak Stadium Circuit here on Sunday.

He added that a suitable site would be identified for the project and also said he hoped Petronas would sponsor more sporting activities like a jet skiing championship in Sarawak.

On Sunday’s races, Mohd Edzuan Abdul Gani of Motul KMC YY Pang won the expert category. Ahmad Fazrul Sham of Shell Advance Majo Motor Race was second while third place was won by Azlan Sham Kamaruzaman of Petronas Sprinta Ah Hong.

In the novice category, Mohd Adli Salihin (Motul KMC YY Pang) was first, Mohd Hafiz Sharudin (Khi ARC Racing) second and Mohd Rashid Abdul Razak (Petronas Sprinta Raceline) third.

The Wira EPG category was won by Mohd Rozaiman Mohd Said (SKF Enduro Racing) while Zaidy Mohd Zaifaizal (Motul KMC YY Pang) and Ahmad Abdul Kadir (Faito Boon Kui Racing) finished second and third respectively.

In the race for the Yamaha Givi Cup, Mohd Hafiz Abdul Jalil emerged tops with Azrie Ali Hassan and Hasmari Gunari second and third respectively. — Bernama
