Air Trip on Kuching to Mukah

Gold Arawana share his experience on flying through Twin Otter, a 19-seated plane from Kuching City to Mukah....

Fly on average 7,000 ft above sea level gives an impressive view on the relationship between nature and life. No story to tell because my photos are the best story-teller....

One of industrial park at Kuching City.

You will see this whenever your plane is about landing at Kuching Airport, 1st Silicon, one of the leading electronics factory operate in Sarawak.

The river webs of Sarawak, the green jungles are actually a secondary forest

The muddy coastline on the estuary of Sungai Sarawak. Nowhere to see beautiful Beach? The far view on the photo below is Santubong, one of the most popular beach in Sarawak.


The estuary of Sungai Sarawak or some noted it as Muara Tebas...

New Island in the making? I am not very sure, its look dangerous to the ships anyway..

The estuary of Batang Rajang, the journey now take another half an hour to reach Mukah airport

Kampung Rajang at Tanjung Manis

Tanjung Manis, refer to my previous article about this. The far view is the site for Halal Park.


The Batang Belawai and Batang Loba Pulau Bridge under construction This two bridges are important as it will connect Mukah to Sibu.

The Tanjung Manis - Sibu Road under construction, the project that hope to boost up the developments of Tanjung Manis.

Palm Oil Plantation are everywhere, hey... dont forget to pay your tax ha...at least help the government to build better roads in Sarawak..

Hmmmpp...where is this area, I cannot locate it. Anyway the scattered settlements in Sarawak is one of the biggest challenge to build roads and other basic infrastructures. And they said, " No problem, we still have the river." But your river are now polluted lah... Its look like the river of coffee or Milo? I mean the colour...

Where are all the big trees? Oklah...no point to keep it there but make sure the returns are for benefit of the rakyat.

The far view is the Dalat Bridge which is under construction. Mukah Division has hundreds of bridges...

The settlements along Batang Oya at Dalat..Hmmppp...its look too congested.

Mukah Polytechnic. Its helf a lot to produce engineers. Belajar rajin-rajin, next time you people are the one who will responsible to develop the jungles surround you...

We are about to land. Can you see the airport? Its on the small piece of land on the far view of this photo.

And we are in Mukah now, thanks pilot! I try to take their photos but unfortunately they have tight schedule to continue their journey to Miri. So, before Mukah Airport transform itself to a bigger airport, you better try this one or otherwise you have no chance to use it anymore.

One last final warning, it a bit shacky in bad weather but keep trust on the pilot.. it is just normal turbulance..

Ya...one more information, this flight fly twice from Kuching and Miri to Mukah.

And

Welcome to Mukah...

Thanks for the superb photos that are hard to be found.

I like the photos showing the Sibu-Tanjung Manis Highway as it is the current most anticipated highway in Sarawak other than the Matang highway by Zecon. Not many people venture to snap the photos of the vital highway.

Hopefully it will be completed ahead of schedule and spur the development of the area.
