Ride to Batang Ai, Sarawak

For many riders like us, enjoying our ride is better than the destination itself. It didn’t matter whether our destination was a tourist spot or only known by the locals, because what matters most are to get our tires rolling and get the adrenaline rush in our veins. Once we reach our destinations, we usually go for a drink and take selfies. Simple and yet fun activities. Hehehe.

A few months ago, we decided to ride to Batang Ai, a few kilometres after Sri Aman town and before Betong. It was a planned activity. The journey took us about 2 hours plus to get there. It was said that the freshest and sweetest Tilapia fish is from Batang Ai. So we decided to check it out.

It’s a must to stop at a petrol station (Betong) for refuelling. Otherwise, we would be stranded.

As we reached Batang Ai, we took photos in front of the boats. These boats were used by the longhouse folks to commute from their longhouses to town daily.

From the hilltop, we saw the fish breeding plots (behind us) That’s where the fresh Tilapias were.

And again, selfie is a must.

Although the trip was enjoyable, it was tiring and we were slightly affected by the rain. If you noticed it, my brother was actually wearing a raincoat. Hehe…
