Are you thinking of travelling mid-week to avoid the weekenders’ crowd?
Look no further than our exploration of Kalimantan’s river. This open tour will help preserve the cultural and natural beauty of Kalimantan as well as taking you on a journey to see Orangutan on their habitat in Kalimantan.
Every Tuesday morning, our svelte river-boat will take you cruising the river of Kalimantan. With some stops now and then, you will explore local villages, rehabilitation centre, and meet the local Dayaknese people that will show you their cultures.
This activity is fun for family or friends, where you get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city.
