Express boat (known as ferry in some part of the world) and longboat remains the only viable mode of transportation for getting from point A to B along the Rajang River. The hundred of villages along Rajang and it tributaries have yet to have access to road. Belaga town, the last town along Rajang were linked to Bintulu and the outside world only recently.
The slideshow above featured photos of Rajang river taken in between Belaga and Punan Sama longhouse. A longboat journey to Belaga from Punan Sama took about 2 hours passing through several rough waters (rapids).
