Although the boat was a fairly uncomfortable wooden longboat, having only thin cushions as seats, a crudely built metal canopy overhead, and powered by a 40 HP outboard motor, the ride was to be filled with incredible scenery, and the cool air coming at us in the open boat was a nice reprieve from the oppressive heat
After finding ourselves a decent dinner on one of the many riverside floating restaurants, we wandered around Kuala Tahan, to find that it is a "dry" settlement (A beer can be bought at the 'international standard' hotel, but, not really worth the cost), and that there really wasn't much life to the place. As such, we retired for the night, with plans to awaken early and make use of the many hiking trails that wind throughout the park.
