Machan is a small town just about 25km away from Kanowit. Due to its close proximity with Kanowit, I decided to check out this town. Before arriving Machan, there is a oil palm statue (which also happen to be the town's symbol) at the junction leading to the town.

Before arriving the town, I came across a privately owned orchard.

There is nothing much to see at Machan except for a row of old Chinese wooden shop houses

The Pasar Tamu is located in between the shop houses which operates daily from 6-11am

Machan community hall

However, there is an unpleasant sight just across the river from the town. Logging activities seems to be active here. Illegal or not, it kind of pollute the river and its natural surrounding.
