One of the best ways to enjoy Sabah’s sunset scene is to do a river cruise. Seri Serbang river cruise in Bongawan, Papar offers guests a relaxing boat ride while anticipating sundown. While cruising, guests might even have the chance to see the elusive proboscis monkey, endemic to the Borneo island. They are most active in the evening as they make their way nearer to the river bank to find a tree to settle for the night.
Located in Papar district, about 1 ½ hour drive from the Kota Kinabalu city centre, the tour runs every evening from 4:30pm to 8:00pm. Guests will be welcomed with a high tea menu before the start of the river cruise along the Serbang River. The 1-hour boat ride will take guests to the best sunset point to enjoy Sabah’s vibrant sunset.
When the surrounding turns dark, get ready to be enchanted by the glowing light emitted by the little fireflies. The trail of nature lights will keep guests awed throughout the cruise as you head back to the jetty to enjoy local dinner prepared by the operator.
Other activities available include lobsters and crabs catching, fishing and even camping. Those looking forward to an overnight stay can also do so at the Seri Serbang Homestay. Booking for activities and accommodation should be made in advance.
