Bintulu was formally a fishing village but following the discovery of large reserves of natural gas offshore in 1969 it has developed significantly and plans to be a fully industrialised city by 2020. Due to the expat population the area has plenty of bars, restaurants and nightclubs. Worthy of a visit is Taman Tumbina, a zoo which houses crocodiles and pythons. Most visitors enter the park for jungle-trekking or hill climbing. The beautiful scenery of the South China Sea awaits people who climb to the top of the hill! (B)(L)(D)
