MASWings Review from Miri to Bario: Flying with Twin Otter for the First Time

Hi everyone!

I really overestimated my ability to finish the rest of my Borneo trip series. It’s been almost 4 months ever since I came back, and I only finished up to my Miri journey so far.

But no worries, because sooner or later, I’m committed to sharing everything with you. I hope the complete series of my Borneo trip would be able to help anyone who’s keen to start their journey on the island. One big island, with three different countries that are definitely worth to explore.

And this time, I’m gonna write about my experience to fly with MASWings for the first time. MASWings is the regional community airline which provides services throughout East Malaysia states, Sabah and Sarawak in Borneo.

I flew with them when I departed from Miri, heading to Bario. Not only was it my first time to fly with them, but also it marked the first time I flew with a small aircraft like Twin Otter. And therefore, I’m so keen to share it with you. 🙂

The Room Hotel, Miri: The Best Budget Hotel in Sarawak

As you might already know from some of my previous posts, I managed to visit 4 cities (and a small town) in Sarawak during my Borneo trip. One of them was Miri.

Miri is a coastal city in southeastern Sarawak, East Malaysia. Known as the location of the first oil well drilling in entire Malaysia, it wasn’t a surprise to see some rapid development in the city.

With its location that is relatively not so far from Bruneian, Bruneian also often make it their short getaway for either doing groceries or just spending some time to enjoy the nightlife in the city. Other than that, Miri has got some places to offer in the suburb like Niah Caves or Tusan Beach.

Based on my experience making a stop in Miri, it’s fair to say that Miri is just a typical transit city. Everything worth visiting is quite a distance from the city center.

(Review) Lehdo Inn Hotel: Where to Stay in Sibu, Sarawak

Gong xi fat chai, happy Chinese New Year for those who celebrate it!

I found some statues of 12 animals in Chinese horoscope when I was in Sibu, so then I made the pig as the featured image in this post since we’re welcoming the year of pig this year.

So, for those celebrating Chinese New Year or whatever you call it in your place (Tet holiday in Vietnam, no?!)… Control yourself before you become a pig on your own! 😛

Anyway, since it’s Chinese New Year and I’m still yet to write a review on the hotel where I stayed in Sibu… Here it comes!
