Kampung Sebuyau

Visited Pekan (small town in english) Sebuyau, Pekan Senbangan and other nearby village on a day trip some where around August together with Hui Hui and her friend (Ah Siew) whose hometown was at Pekan Senbangan.

We departed from Kuching to Pekan Senbangan around 9.00am in the morning after breakfast taking the Samarahan route. Its take about 1 hour to reach Ferry Batang Sadong, its a freaking huge river. The Ferry is huge but its look so small floating on the river. The Ferry ride across the River take about 15 to 20 minutes. The longest ever Ferry ride I ever get on crossing a River so far. Photo below of the Ferry.

After crossing Batang Sadong, we continue to Kpg Sembangan. Forgotten how long the journey is as I was just amazed with the scenery, with all the coconut plantation on both side of the road. Anyhow, we reach Kpg Sembangan in no time and its a really small village with only 1 row of shop house. Wasting no time, I took few shot for remembrance. Photo below :-

After hangout awhile at Pekan Sembangan, we make a move to Pekan Sebuyau. On the way, we stop by at Siew's sister coconut farm. Mainly coconut plantation and pumpkin... See photo below..

We make a quick move from Siew's sister farm and head directly to Pekan Sebuyau at the day is getting late. At last, we get to Pekan Sebuyau in 25 minutes of total driving from Pekan Senbangan at average speed of 80 km/h.

Pekan Sebuyau bit bigger in population compare to Pekan Senbagan and development really limited and hard to see source of income for the people living there. Nonetheless, its a nice and friendly small town which just located by the river and can see the sea. It was really windy as the wind blow from the sea.... photo below...
