Longhouse Touring In Kapit

The express boat that runs between Belaga and Kapit is apparently nicknamed the flying coffin on account of its long, thin shape and not because it causes slow death to every single one of your nerve endings with its brutal air conditioning.

A Socially Awkward Guide To Visiting Longhouses
