The express boat that travels to Kapit makes its first stop in Song. This is a jumping-off point for visiting Iban longhouses of the Katibas River. Song, with its old Chinese shophouses facing the wharf is well-known among the locals for its ijok, a palm wine produced from the Arenga Pinnata. Song is also connected to Kapit Town by road which takes about 45 minutes drives through a picturesque hilly terrain.

Kapit town is surrounded by undulating hills. The centre of town can be quite chaotic with the number of cars on the road. In the last decade, the town has grown exponentially with the emergence of the new township of Bleteh.
