Very helpful owner. Homestay close to food outlets, housing the Malay area and close to the mosque. So if you want to go to town, it's not too far. Even at the airport in 20-30 minutes like that. Really the best. God willing to come again.

About

Constructed in 1879 by Charles Brooke, the second Rajah of Sarawak, Fort Margherita is an important landmark and monument in Sarawak's history which goes back to the Brooke Dynasty.
