Day 2 Kuching

Activities:

  • Discover the charms of this riverine city established by Sir James Brooke, the first White Rajah of Sarawak. In the city center many of the buildings date back to the colorful days of Brooke rule. Old Chinese temples and bustling markets dot almost every corner. Popular with locals as well as visitors is the mile long waterfront promenade. The shops along the Main Bazaar probably have the best collection of Bornean tribal carvings, handicrafts, antiques and souvenirs in the whole island of Borneo. A city of museums, the Sarawak museum completed in 1891, possibly is the best known. Kuching is clean and green.
  • After lunch, depart for the Semengoh Wildlife Centre located a short drive from the centre of the city. Observe the feeding of orangutans that have been rescued from captivity and are being trained to survive independently and ultimately be returned to the forest.

Day 3 Kuching

Activities:

  • Situated just 32 km from Kuching is the Sarawak Cultural Village. This 17-acre site nestled on the foothill of the legendary Mount Santubong, fronting the South China Sea offers an excellent introduction to the local culture and lifestyles of the ethnic people of Sarawak. A typical Sarawakian’s warmth and hospitality awaits you here. Share the arts, crafts, games, foods and music of the seven major ethnic groups in Sarawak.
  • After touring the village, enjoy a multi-cultural dance performance in the village’s own theatre.

  • After lunch, from the Park HQ, take a scenic 3km plankwalk through primary rainforest to the entrance of Deer Cave. Deer Cave has the world’s largest cave entrance and is the largest single cave passage in the world – about 120 ­150 m in diameter, or it can fit St. Pauls’ Cathedral under its massive archway. The cave has a moon-like landscape and from one vantage point, a perfect profile of President Lincoln can be observed.
  • Most evenings at sundown, a spectacular exodus of about 2 million of bats can be observed as they leave the cave in search of food.
  • Next to Deer Cave is Lang’s Cave. The stalactites and stalagmites inside this cave are representative of the very best limestone formations in the park.
  • Return to your hotel or lodge by torchlight.

One of them, the one-leafed plant can only be found at Mulu; rare species of orchids and pitcher plants can be seen in many locations and photo-sensitive algae grow on certain rocks and have produced needle-like formations that point towards the source of light. Clearwater Cave has a wonderful swimming area shaded by giant rainforest trees.
