A Ride On A Motor Launch

I went on a motor lunch ride some time ago and it was very interesting.The half steel and half timber boat is considered an old and traditional one. According to the owner of the boat, he has been serving passengers for decades using this kind of boat. Surprisingly, the one and half hour ride starting from Sibu's Tua Pek Kong Wharf to Paradom Village and back only costed RM2.50. The boat makes several round trip a day carrying mostly farmers and workers who are employed by the many sawmills and shipyards along the Rajang River.
