Photographer's Note

Most towns in Sarawak are established along riverbanks or river mouths due chiefly to the need for river transport, as other transport modes are not available. Until late 1970s when a trunk road linking all towns in Sarawak was built, it was the only option that goods and cargoes were done by shipping. Most of us in a generation ago were growing up using river transport. But in 1990s the economy picked up and growth was impressive enough to bring some deveopment to Sarawak. One of such will be the Borneo Highlands, 1 hour drive from Kuching city.

Here, highland resort living at 1200m altitude along the interior border of Sarawak is one of the promotion campaigns during the last 10 years when access road is built. Since then gardens and 18-hole golf course is provided. The tropical rainforest and cooler temperature is a drawing factor for people to visit this area, which is predominantly resided by Bidayuh people.
