Raya Trip to Lahad Datu ( Final Part )

Posted: October 28, 2007 in Jalan-Jalan

Here we meet again..

After 4 days of great Raya trip, I’ve been brought to the south of Lahad Datu where we visit ‘Pantai Bakapit’, not many people knows about this beach as the beach was quiet popular back 40 years ago..


Bakapit beach situated around 35km from Lahad Datu town.. as you can see the view along the journey there are palm plantation all over..


Along the road, we passed the Tabin Wildlife Reserve signage and it was just 27km away to Tabin, the place where you’ll find mammals + birds and orangutan only in Lahad Datu, KK we have one something like this, Lok Kawi Wildlife Park. Pity… the road to Tabin are totally not accessible and that’s why we didn’t go further otherwise I would have another article about this Tabin already..


Before you reach Bakapit beach, you have to passed by this kampung.. Kampung Bakapit.


For the last 40 years, most people who live here are fisherman but now some of them worked in a factory around and some got a job in Lahad Datu city and some worked in the palm plantation.


People who live here are Bajau, Bugis, Suluks, Idaan and some are Tidung.


Now.. arrive at Pantai Bakapit.


The place was small, no commercial beach activities around it’s just an unforgotten beach merely speaking.


Pose of the day… Treng! Teng! Ten! Tenggg!


Local kampung boys, hanging around the beach tryin to get some peaceful mind..

after the short visit to Pantai Bakapit we went back to the city for Hari Raya open house invitation around the city


Got home almost 11pm, but the night still young and It’s not late to play the mercun.. This mercun Made in Thailand, the sound was really super superb, especially when you blow this thing in the midle of the night.. He! He!
