Bintulu is one place in Sarawak where sunset viewing is at its best. Whether its from the mouth of the Kemena River ( the main Bintulu river) or going northwards to Tanjung Batu by following its coastline, the sunset views are spectacular for most of the year. An elevated point at Tanjung Batu is the Taman Tumbina, a zoological- botanical park developed by BDA (Bintulu Development Authority) starting in 1989 and declared open on 2nd August, 1991. The picture above shows the well-grown bougainvilleas at the Bougainvillea section of the botanical area of the park. The Bougainvillea garden was a popular public viewing point to see the development along the Bintulu coastline.
