Fresh air (with cigarette smokes), and sunshine not for you? Then chill out in the cabin with the temperature dropping to 16C (?) thanks to the industrial strength of the air-conditioner. Bring your winter clothings, I'm not joking. Its even worse in the lower cabin.
Want fresh air and open sea view without the cigarette smokes? then move to the far end of the open deck, but be prepare to get roasted. The sunshine plus the blowing wind is a lethal combination in getting a tan before you can finish singing "Top of the World".
Ah, what is a holiday without shopping, even though the selection is quite bare. Mineral water, chocolate, junk food and smelly prepared cuttlefish to tickle your taste buds (and annoy your seat mates). However business hours is limited to the time the seller is awake from his nap, when he cart three basketful of merchandise and plonks them in front of all eager passengers. Then all transactions are done, he light up a cigarette, count the taking and haul the remainding goods back to the store and continue his slumber.
Coursing through the murky waters of the Rejang River near Sarikei, a somnolent collection of shophouses and a lethargic atmosphere. A retiree's paradise maybe.
