SARAWAK River Cruise

River Cruise!

We spent the entire afternoon at Adelyn's homestay, it rained heavily at about two thirty that caused us some concern but by the time we left two hours later the weather had cleared.

We drove to Jalan Main Bazaar and parked the rental car in front of the Indian Mosque. We then took a brisk walk along the Waterfront till we got to the Sarawak River Cruise ticketing counter. Here we paid the fare of RM70.00 (approximately USD15/EUR14) each and boarded the boat at five minutes to five.

We were excited to "Be enthralled by the landmarks of a bygone era that still stands majestically along the riverbanks. See Kuching from a whole new perspective, as few ever see her." The MV Equatorial, was built in the year 1990, and has been cruising the Sarawak River ever since. Over the past 30 years, the vessel branded the Sarawak River Cruise has offered tourists and locals alike a rich panoramic view of the city and its famous landmarks.

We headed to the upper deck and found a suitable table to enjoy the boat ride. The fare entitled us to a small selection of Kueh Lapis as well as a glass of orange cordial. I sat down to set up the time-lapse on the DJI Action 4 and at precisely 5:30pm the boat pushed off from its dock.

The river cruise would take an hour and a half, so please enjoy the time-lapse footage of the entire journey. As the sun set over the Sarawak river the river cruise came to life with dance performances of the different ethnicities in the state. Since I was pre-occupied with the time-lapse Brendan shot some footage of the dance performances with the DJI Pocket 2.

It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening, and those who felt that it was not worth the fare of RM70.00 ought to manage their expectations. You can hit them up at their Facebook page for private bookings too.

We disembarked the boat and made our way back to the Indian Mosque. We then hopped back into the rental car to make the half an hour drive to the 10th Mile Bazaar of Penrissen Road.

Stay tuned for our next video where we have with Brendan's old roommate Jacob!
