A whirlwind adventure
“Do you like jazz
music?” asked our host.
A series of shrugged
shoulders and indifferent
expressions circulated
our table as we continued to indulge in the
bevy of local cuisines
and beverages.
Little did my tour group
know – aptly nicknamed
the magnificent seven –
that we would be swept
off our feet into an
appreciation of the genre
thanks to the stunning
surrounds, culture and
people in the beautiful
Borneo state of Sarawak.
Embarking on a whirlwind five day tour of the
Malaysian portion of the
world’s second largest
island
Borneo,
the
International
Borneo
Jazz festival was the
major drawcard.
Luckily for our group,
we experienced each

aspect the sprawling
island had to offer: city,
jungle and river.
And what a ride it was.
A short comfortable air
trip aboard Malaysian
Airlines was a breeze
from Perth as we made
our way to the seaside
city of Miri.
Humid yet not overbearing conditions welcomed our group on
arrival and were certainly a respite from the winter woes of Australia.
The newly established
Meritz Hotel provided
more than acceptable
lodgings as we were
given a chance to explore
the diverse city.
Our
knowledgeable
guide Kelly told of the
oil wealth which established the city as the
group soon entered the
breathtaking Tao temple.
Colourful dragons and
impossible architecture
embellished the stunning
temple as we were given
a crash course in the
Chinese religion.
Culture and attraction
meshed into one as this
traveller was even fortold to have a successful
future – which is always
a plus.
One day later and the
group was jetting off yet
again, this time to the
scenic wilderness of
Mulu.
Greenery covered every
inch of the topographically interesting landscape as I felt as if we
had landed on the set of
Lost.

Bunbury Mail journalist Jeffrey Kitt in Borneo
for the Borneo International festival.

Adventure and excitement typified our short
yet explosive stay in
Mulu and was certainly a
highlight.
Cave expeditions and
hikes on both the jungle
floor and tree canopy
added elements of discovery in land vastly different to our own.
A long-boat cruise displayed the area in all its
beauty while the countryside was even more
enchanting when the
heavens opened and rain
fell.
Before we knew it, we
were back on a plane and
transported back to Miri
to catch the second and
final night of the popular

music festival.
The exciting and adventurous music complemented our group’s previous experiences as
some of the world’s best
musicians took to the
stage.
The stunning Malaysian
state of Sarawak is not
widely known in our
country, and it is puzzling to understand why.
This incredible part of
the world has much to
offer the intrepid traveller, and must be seen to
be believed.
