MerasaMerasa is a Dayak village about 2 hours drive from Tanjung Redeb. The village has a number of local guesthouses with very simple facilities.
From the village you will sail by motorized canoe in two hours to the primary rainforest and the river island of Bawan. As often in the jungles of Kalimantan you come face to face with the orangutans
TalisayanThe absolute highlight in Talisayan is swimming with the whale sharks. All year round, except around the full moon, fish from 5 to 10 meters come to the bagans, floating fishing platforms, to feast on the scraps of sprat.
A colorful Bajo (sea gypsies) village is located near Talisayan. A little further you will find the Labuan Cermin mirror lake with salt water on the surface and fresh water in the depth.
Teluk SumbangThe small fishing village of Teluk Sumbang on the east coast of Kalimantan is the base for trips to the Bidadari waterfalls, the island of Kaniungan and various traditional Dayak villages.
With the jungle at the back and pearly white beaches and colorful coral in front of you, it is a good place to be.
Berau (Tanjung Redeb)Berau is the area in East Kalimantan, which also includes the Derawan archipelago. The capital Tanjung Redeb has an airport with several daily flights to Balikpapan and daily to Samarinda and Jakarta.
Berau is both the base for the Mystic Kalimantan tour of the east coast and to the Derawan archipelago. The city itself has little to offer.
