My Sarawak Adventures – Salak Fishing Village
August 3, 2014 Sarawak

Wet from the swim at Satang Besar Island, our boat brought us to a  fishing village off Santubong. Salak Fishing Village is located within the Kuching Wetlands National Park. From far, colourful wooden houses dotted the horizon. For photographer enthusiasts, the village has vast photography subjects.

Right after I climbed up the mossy and slippery wooden steps, I immediately caught eyes on girls playing a three-welled scooter gleefully. I quickened my steps to follow them through.

They might not own ipads, but they laughed and giggled. They were nothing but happy.

As it was low tide, the ground in the size of football field was dry. It was not surprising to notice the rubbish scattered on the ground as it was a mangrove area. Although it might be a sore to the eyes, it was how the villagers lived their daily lives.

These girls just came back from the well which was the source of clean water for the village. They carry the clean water from the well to their houses.
