Pesta Babulang

Watch water buffaloes in action at the Pesta Babulang of the Bisaya community in Batu Danu, Limbang, takes off on June 9 to 11.

Organised by the Bisaya Association, this annual event drives tourists to the streets of Limbang as exciting water buffalo races begin, and also spiced with decorative water buffalo ‘float’ competitions, beauty pageants and traditional Bisaya food fiesta, an affair for the whole community!

To get to Limbang one has to take a 30 minute flight from Miri, or a short 15 minute drive from Tedungan if you are travelling from neighbouring Brunei Darulssalam.
