RIver Transport in Sarawak
Rajang river is the longest river in Malaysia. To travel along the mighty river, powerful boats are needed to carry passengers and goods. As shown above, the express boat is loaded with all types of goods on top of the roof.
Since the express boat is the main mode of transport, most of the time the boat is overcrowded with passengers especially during peak season. However, the express boat is also the main attraction for tourists to travel to the interior of Sarawak.
It is a must for the boat operators to ensure that the boat is not overloaded either with goods or passengers to ensure any untoward incidents such as the one reported recently along the same river.
