Your promise of a gourmet lunch better be true. I am risking my life in this boat without a life boat.
We were in the Mulu caves and stayed in the upmarket resort. For lunch however, we had to crosse the river in this boat.
We went across Melinau River by long boat to the cafe for our lunch. I was weary of not wearing a life jacket. The sign at the jetty said all passengers must wear jackets. Luckily the trip was a short one. People including children were bathing, swimming and fishing off the other jetties. It couldn't be so dangerous if they were doing it.
