A taste of Sabah via Lepa-Lepa boats

KOTA KINABALU: The Lepa-Lepa boat, long a symbol of the ethnic Sea Bajaus of Sabah’s east coast, will soon be available for rides by tourists and locals.

Five Lepa-Lepa boats at the Dalit beachfront of Shangri-La’s Rasa Ria Resort were officially launched by the resort’s general manager Alain Borgers recently.

The launch was done not with the smashing of a bottle of champagne but with the sprinkling of rice, flowers petals and rose water over the bows of the boats by Borgers.

The boats were provided by the newly-formed Borneo Traditional Adventure Company which will hold new activities on the nearby Tambalang River.
