I've been to the Benak festival 2 years ago. The sound of the waves rushing in is a new experience to me. Where else on earth can you see waves sometimes 1 meter - 2 meter high rushing upstream.

I think this festival is not widely advertised. The festival I went to 2 years ago had me waiting 6 hours before the waves comes in.

According to newspaper, the tidal wave should reach that town by 11noon. So I went there around 10.30am, sadly after asking the locals, they said it's 6pm. Worst still, there is no air conditioned cafe where you can rest or relax, so what I did was explore every inch of the town LOL.

I reached Kuching around 10.30pm.

Overall, it's a wonderful experience.

Sounds interesting but I can't join because I am in Singapore. Make sure to take lots of picture & post it here so that I can show my friends here. Especially the Tsunami.
