Bintulu Jetty

Colourful fishing boats



Smal express boats bringing passengers opposite the river or to the nearby kampung/villages . The Sarawak flag is seen on top of each of the express boats. I have taken similar express boats several times already but long time ago. If not mistaken, the last time I took it was something like 4 years back :)

Modern motorboats and ships are seen in the jetty as well.

This express boat looks similar like the express boat I used to take from Sarikei to Sibu during the early days. Reminds me of the good old days. This particular express boat can accomodate 72 passengers. As usual, u can see the Sarawak flag hanging on top of each of the boats. Nice to see the flag waving when blowed by the wind.

Last but not least, the sunset picture... Nope, I didn't stay in the jetty for so long, I went strolling and walking around in Bintulu town and came back there again later on in the late evening. The jetty is located in the town area. So it's convenient to walk around :) There's one fastfood outlet(Sugarbun) located just opposite the Bintulu jetty.

Furkids In Hong Kong said...

Wonderful sunset pic, and seems everyone else agrees!

The guy on the bridge seems to be in deep thought.....

Take care!

Chen said...

doc,
Thanks.
Most of the time,I use my minolta dimage X50, cos it's small, compact and easier to bring around.
At times, I use my minolta dimage Z2. This one has optical zoom 10x, but it's more bulky.

Peace and Furkids in HK,
Thanks.
