Nothing interesting. Save your time. No historic buildings to see, no pittorsque streets, no interesting handicrafts offering. Rather go on a bicycle tour...

this spot is never known by tourists. It is a place where the locals go especially the youngs. its quite breezy down here since its overkooks the buildings in Dompak Island especially the Mosque and the Provincial Government Office. U can have snacks and drinks here. Good getaway from it all in the downtown

Smooth and good road. Jungle on along the road, very refreshing for the eye and tired-mind. You hardly meet other cars nor houses. Very nice trip to the resort.

We where lucky enough to score a driver while down at Paser Oleh Oleh where we got a great massage of 2 hours and pedicure for about $80. Anyway we organised the driver to pick us up... More
