For more adventurous visitors a ride on trained bird’s back is available. The local shop sells many ostrich-derivative products and their restaurant can treat you with ostrich satay, burger or their egg’s omelette.
3. Fireflies Watching: For a fresh seafood (including lobster), BBQ or western cuisine, go to the floating Restoran Terapung Bujang, a boat next to mangrove wood. You can also entertain yourself with a river cruise, fire flies watching, fishing or karaoke.
4. Tanjung Balau Museum (Fishermen Village)- The small fishing village is worth visiting, not only for the fresh and tasty seafood, but also in order to get a glimpse of the slow-paced life led by this community. A stroll along the streets of a fishing village can prove quite enriching, especially if you have never had a close look at a fisherman’s home. You can also pay a visit to the local artist and his small gallery, showing modern paintings and installations inspiried by the local nature and lifestyle.
