Tug boats @ the Segah river.
Tanjung Redeb is the capital of the Berau regency in the province of East Kalimantan. It is a sleepy transit town for tourists who wants to enjoy the diving haven of the Derawan islands. It also has a massive mining industry where coal mines are in abundance in it’s vicinity. The mighty Segah river provides the lifeline to the town where coal ore are transported in barges, pulled by mighty tug boats which provides a familiar sight of the river views. Other then the mining activities there are a few huge palm oil plantations on the outskirts of Tanjung Redeb .

In the evenings, the locals spend their time by the Segah River’s banks, enjoying the sights and the tranquility of the river. Tanjung Redeb is quiet by sunset and one could enjoy the food at  the makeshift restaurants by the Segah River’s bank. I stayed a night at Tanjung Redeb and I felt quite relax walking along the banks of the Segah river watching people enjoying themselves especially those who were fishing waiting patiently for their catches and cursing  when the fishes got away from their line . A good form of distressing oneself maybe I should try to take up  fishing as a hobby .

I wished I had more time in Tanjung Redeb to visit the diving haven of the Derawan islands which is about a couple of hours by boat as I was intrigued about a fresh water lake full of non-poisonous jelly fish as told to me by a local………In shaa Allah ( God Willingly ) , I hope I would be back soon ……………………..
