Merarap Hotsring & Pesta Babulang Bisaya Limbang

It’s time for those guy to say thanks for all your help in planning for our recent visit to Merarap Hot spring & Pesta babulang- Bisaya community in Limbang. Besides the brutal logging road we encountered upon our return trip from merarap hotspring we saw a few logging truck load with logs, everything about the trip was excellent. I will forego many details and simply paint (Headache -Mabok ikut kereta) the overall picture of our experiences. The entire journey was handle by a Local tour operator, operated in Miri - Heart of Borneo Tours
