It is a 1 hour tour by river cruise ship in the Sarawak river. They entertain with welcome drink and cakes and cultural dance performance. But one hour is not enough. Wished to roam more.

How much is the fare? I've two conflicting rates...one was RM60 and the other RM83. We are staying at the riverside so we can just walk to the pier. Thank you.

You have to check if it was the BIG cruise or a small boat, with different period of cruising too.
