TAWAU WATERFRONT

Here you can watch the daily routine of the Waterfront where boats on standby for passenger to go to the near by Sebatik Island.

The setting up of modern fish landing facilities in Tawau Water Front is among the 13 key projects under Sabah Development Corridor (SDC). Sabah Development Corridor (SDC) encompasses entire Sabah, including the interior regions and the burgeoning west coast.

The Sabah Development Corridor is a three-pronged blueprint designed by the Institute for Development Studies, Sabah, targeted primarily at agriculture, tourism and manufacturing.

One of the most popular hang out places in Tawau is the Water Front. Tawau Water Front is beside  a double lane road. There are a few chairs and a children recreation park where local families spent their weekend afternoon. The evenings at Water Front bring beautiful sunsets framed against a timeless horizon.

On the West of Water Front is a fishing port where fishing vessels with the daily catches coming in fresh every day.  Here you find boats for hire.

Tawau waterfront may not be as glamorous as Kuching waterfront but you can witness the lives of local fishermen in their sampans and participate in the loading and unloading of goods from neighboring islands onto sampans.

Tawau is one of the best places in Malaysia to eat seafood.  Many West Malaysian come to this town  just for the seafood.

To the distance south is Pulau Sebatik (Sebatik Island) shared by 2 countries Malaysia and Indonesia. The island was the site of heavy fighting between Malaysian and Indonesian troops during konfrontasi in 1963.

Kapit Waterfront

Kapit Waterfront

In the absence of road infrastructure from Kapit to other parts of Sarawak, the mighty Rajang River and its numerous tributaries provide the only means of easy and cheap transportation

Express boats ferry passengers from Sibu to Kapit and from Kapit to Baleh, Bakun in Belaga, Punan Bah and Nanga Melipis along the Rajang River.

To travel along the tributaries to the longhouses which are home to over 60,000 people, longboats are deplored which at times have to be pulled through the choppy shallow water.
