Places of interest in
SIMANGGANG (SRI AMAN)
The journey from Sri Aman to Jakar is very comfortable as the road is quite smooth compare to any parts of the road in the state.
From Jakar drive toward East to Sarikei to Lanang bridge. The toll is RM5 but the journey is shorter compare to Durin.
The journey after Jakar to Bintulu is about two hours plus on an uneven road.
Some parts of the roads are good but the rest no.
There shouldn't be a problem for a four wheel drive to get through the road. On reaching Bintulu-Miri junction, stop at the coffee shop for a light refreshment.
