At home Boutique Hotel in Kidurong

Bintulu town is now stretching out and Kidurong is the next stop. This township is blooming due to its strong industrial market. However there is not much to see if you are a tourist. Too far from bintulu town and way too much pollution.

JC Mark Hotel Bintulu

I noticed this lovely hotel while driving around the new Medan. According to the receptionist on duty, previously they have a contract to provide lodging to employees of a company at Sumalaju. Now that the contract is over and workers has gone back, the hotel decided to open its doors to the public instead.

I wondered what JC Mark stands for...?

Bintulu In 2016

After a long stretch I finally found my way back to Bintulu. I stayed at 900inn this trip. The Inn has also expanded with an introduction of a new wing. The area is more vibrant now with a number of night pubs pocketing the shop lots.

I tried 900 Inn Fish Noodle signature dish for lunch The soup was tasty and peppery. Of course their signature Durian Pizza is still there.

"FOOD COURT" in Bintulu is plenty. You cannot go wrong by visiting on of these "FOOD COURT", lots of choices to choose from Malay, Chinese, Indian, Western, noodles to rice. Most of it found located between two corner shop lots. The newest one at the time of writing this is Garden Food Court. I tried their Laksa Kuching and dumplings.

Another huge restaurant I spotted as we drove around Medan is Dinner World. It looks huge. I think could easily  hold up to 300 hundred tables. Maybe my next visit I will try to have dinner here.

Medan oh finally has the pedestrian bridge I was complaining about back in the old days. Its still being built so maybe another year or so then you can walk on it. 

Hotels is abundant in this tiny town. A new one spurting before you could even try up the latest. The picture below is a new hotel. I do not even know the name yet.

My trip was too short. I did not even have time to cover the new mall which I heard has no air probably a miss is not too bad after all. :)

Studio 8 Inn Bintulu

Nice little hotel located in Tanjung Batu area. Seaview Village Cafe is located at ground floor so finding food should not be a problem here. With lift too. Great to hear that. The room space is a little tight but nicely decorated.

Cruise ship Superstar Aquarius from Kota Kinabalu to Bintulu

A cruise ship Superstar Aquarius is coming to Bintulu.

Look at the inside of this cruise ship. Spanking cool. Of course super expensive too. One person fare bought on Sales Promotion period can cost up to RM800.00

I have to think twice before I book it. Cheaper to travel by air then book a spanking cool hotel like New World Suite for something less than that!

Then again after trying myself a one night cruise on board the ship last weekend, I have a different opinion. Its expensive yet the experience itself is memorable.

Can book your seat online at

This hotel is located at Tanjung Batu Commercial Center. This is an old hotel. I have noticed this hotel from the moment I arrived at Bintulu. Only now I am blogging about it because before it looked really run down. But recently I notice that they have repainted the exterior so hopefully they have also upgraded the inside.
