Wanderings, travel, photographs and skiing…

Mukah, Sarawak, Malaysia

By on April 19, 2014 in General

The drive from Sibu to Mukah took just over three hours.

Mukah is not a large town, it is on the coast and it does have an airport.

The local beach is quite stunning. Mile upon mile of sand…

However, the beach, and the surrounding land, does seem to be a bit of a dumping ground of rubbish….

The local airport…

Originally the town had a sago factory but as the price of sago fell in the early 20th century the factory closed and all that now remains is the chimney.

There is also a small Chinese temple near the former site of the sago factory.

The town of Mukah is set back a little from the coast on a river.

P1130664Why bother?

Like any Malaysian town Mukah has a market which sells pretty much anything….

Something I have not really seen in Malaysia that often – hairy coconuts….
