The Milky Way is one of the most amazing natural phenomena that one can capture with a camera. It contains 200-300 billion* stars, so dim that the naked eyes cannot distinguish individual stars but a band arching over the night sky.

These two pictures were shot in Bario by Kenneth Lee on 20th July between 1130pm and 1am during the just concluded Bario Food Festival. It is obvious that food isn’t the only experience that captivates a visitor in Bario. We do however have to say that timing is all important in order to gaze at this galaxy.

A #taoist temple in #Miri as described by @edjunaidi

#VisitSarawak #Malaysia #Borneo — Located in Miri, San Ching Temple is the largest Taoist temple standing in South East Asia. Its elegance architecture is what tourists shouldn’t miss. It takes up 1.5 acres of land and is bordered by housing area. A visit to the temple is definitely worth it to have a closer understanding on Taoism.

In conjunction with Sarawak’s Asian Music Festival 2014 in Miri, organised by Sarawak Tourism Board @sarawaktravel.

Miri, Sarawak, Malaysia.

This is the view point to watch the tidal bore (benak) surging up the Batang Lupar river twice a day according to the tide table; early morning and late afternoon.
