Marudi Photowalk in Sarawak

Sarawak Photo Walk Marudi

This is a recap of my Marudi Photowalk in Sarawak, which I did back in 2018 as I stopped here to get to the Mulu National Park via a wooden longboat.

While Marudi is one of the lesser-visited destinations in Sarawak, it is probably one of the most natural townships home to the Orang Ulu.

Marudi is a very small town located by the Baram River in the interior of Sarawak and borders the Kingdom of Brunei.

The best way to get here is via road from the city of Miri, which is a 90-minute drive using the local roads and crossing several riverways.

Once here, this township can be a total juxtaposition of what you have seen in general towns and cities across Sarawak because it is still underdeveloped.

This place is a gold mine for the avid photographer as there is so much natural lifestyle that can be photographed. But one needs to know when is the best time to explore Marudi town.

I was only passing by, but I had some free time to explore the main town area and felt that I needed to come back here again for more photography.

Conclusion

I have to say, spending just two hours walking around Marudi was not enough, but the sheer natural lifestyle here kept me very impressed.

Locals are extremely friendly, and street photography here would be the best thing to capture. However, I may even plan another Marudi Photowalk in Sarawak in the near future.

And if you are interested, you can also view some of my other Malaysia Photowalks I have done over the last few years.
