KANOWIT
 

First stop on the Rejang, only an hour from Sibu, is the small riverside town of Kanowit. This is the furthest point on the Rejang currently accessible by road (from Durin), as well as by express boat, and makes a good alternative jumping-off point for visitors who want to spend an extra hour in bed before catching the express boat upriver. The town centre is formed by three streets of 1930?s Chinese shophouses near the waterfront. The main landmark is Fort Emma, a 19th Century Brooke Era wooden fort. Kanowit is virtually untouristed, so don?t expect any flashy seafood restaurants; the best cooking is done in Chinese coffee shops, so just stick your head into the kitchen and ask what they?ve got.

 

For adventurous travellers, these coffee shops are also fertile ground for making friends and getting an invitation to one of the longhouses on the nearby Ngemah and Julau rivers. There is also a homestay programme at the nearby Rumah Benjamin Angki longhouse.

 

Contact : Kanowit District Office for further details

SONG
 

The small town of Song, just over 2 hours from Sibu by express boat, is the jumping off point for visiting Iban longhouses on the Katibas and Bangkit rivers. The Katibas is served by twice-daily express boats (times vary), and it is normally possible to get an invite to visit a longhouse from one of your fellow passengers. Alternatively, the Capitol Hotel can usually arrange a guide. Please note that many of the traditional wooden longhouses in the area are being replaced by modern concrete structures, so check with the Song District Office for the latest situation.

 
 
 
BELAGA
 

The Upper Rejang, beyond Pelagus, is home to the Orang Ulu or "Upriver People". The riverine settlement of Belaga is the last major trading post on the Rejang, and a good base for arranging visits to the Kayan and Kenyah longhouses situated further upriver. Due to the remote and rugged terrain, visitors travelling beyond Belaga are advised to inform the Belaga District Office about their travel plans. Contact details for licensed nature guides in Belaga are available from the Kapit Resident?s Office or Belaga District Office.
