Before I continue with my Batang Ai experience, I just like to highlight a rest stop along the Sibu-Kuching trunk road.
Betong rest stop is about 180km from Sibu. Roughly it is a 2 hours drive from Sibu. Betong Rest stop is just next to Betong Petronas Station.
I usually stop by at this rest stop to relax my strain muscles after a long drive and a visit to the loo. They charge RM0.30 for the loo.
There is this round structure at the centre of this rest stop. I don't really know what its primarily function is but it is sure a nice place to sit and rejuvenate myself before continuing my journey.
