About
Kuching, the capital of Sarawak, is simply unique. No other city in Malaysia has such a romantic and unlikely history, nor displays its charms with such an easy grace. The residents of Kuching enjoy living here, and take great pride in their fascinating city, which is reflected in their attitude to visitors. Visit Bako and the rainforest and then relax on the beach after the rigours of jungle trekking.

          Bako National Park
          Stop: 8 hours - Admission included
          The tour starts and departs in the morning to Bako National Park. It takes about half an hour to the fishing village of Bako to board the boat to the Park headquarters. Bako is the oldest gazette national park in Sarawak. It offers the perfect introduction to Sarawak flora and fauna. The 16 square kilometers of primary forests is home to seven distinct ecosystems; beach vegetation, cliff vegetation, mangrove, peat swamp forests, mixed dipterocarp forest, heath forest and grasslands. Constant erosion over millions of years has turned the Bako coastline into a unique geographical landmark. Cliff faces, sandstone structures, sea stacks and pristine sandy beaches dot the area. Wildlife thriving in the area includes the rather intrusive long tailed macaques which roam all over and their shier cousins, the silver leaf monkeys and the long-nosed, and the unusual potbellied Proboscis Monkeys. Other denizens include flying lemur, mouse deer, bearded pigs, bats, tarsiers, slow loris and palm civet cats. Lunch served at Bako Canteen (Guest own Expenses) then proceed to the famous sea stack before returning to Kuching City.

          Flexible sight seeing tour
          As myself and my daughter were the only ones on this tour, the tour guide, Andy, was friendly and accommodating. Besides the mentioned destinations on this tour, I was able to have a drive down memory lane and visit the site of my previous primary school in Miri, which is now Piasau Nature reserve. To make up for time, some of the other places we drove past, and others were closed on the Sunday (eg Petroleum museum). Our last stop was so crowded as it was the weekend and we were unable to find a parking spot so had to just drive past Coco Cabana instead. I suggest doing the tour on a weekday. All in all our tour duration was still 3 hours. Andy could answer the 100 of questions I asked him about Miri and Sarawak - he is a bank of information and knowledge. This tour is highly recommended if you would like to see the sights of Miri in half a day.

          Worthwhile visit
          Really enjoyed the cave walks, even in monsoon rain on first day. The cabin was comfortable and quite satisfactory to stay. Food provided was good and we really enjoyed our stay.

          Stay at the Marriott instead of the Rainforest Lodge
          The setting is beautiful and convenient to the Park. The chalet I was in smelled so strongly of mildew and mold that it could knock you over upon entering. The air conditioning was barely functioning. There was no drinking water provided and no refill station so a lot of plastic waste. Every little thing is an extra charge including wifi or changes to the set breakfast. I was sick and requested rice and toast which cost wise is cheaper but they charged extra. I asked if someone could help with my luggage on departure as I was weak but I was told no one was available. I do not recommend the Rainforest Lodge as it was the most expensive thing I did while in Borneo and the accommodations and services were a big disappointment.

          An Incredible Day Trip to Niah Caves
          The trip to the Niah Caves was one of the highlights of our recent visit to Sarawak. Our tour guide provided sufficient information to prepare us for the nature walk and the climb to the Niah Caves. The drive from our Miri hotel to the Niah National Park took about an hour and a half. The walk to the caves is about 3 km through true nature and the track is mostly on planks installed by the park authorities. As we started early in the morning, the walk was pleasant - not very humid initially. After the climb to the Traders' cave, we entered the Great Cave. What an impressive sight, nothing like being there yourself. There were number of locations where archaeological digs were being carried out. Unfortunately, we were not able to proceed to the Painted Cave due to closure for archaeological works. This is an experience not to be missed if in Miri, Sarawak!!

        A great and worthwhile trip, especially thanks to our guide Eli, who passionately explained the flora and fauna to us and never tired of looking out for snakes, monkeys, etc. Thanks to him, we were able to see a lot of animals.
        It starts with a boat tour, then we continue with trekking, where we could choose between a shorter (about 1.5km) and a longer (3km) route. We opted for the longer route (there are normally up to 4km of trails, but they were closed) and managed the ascent and descent well despite knee problems.
        Then we continue by boat to the rock formations, which were smaller than expected but still worth seeing, and at the end we had lunch at our own expense before returning to the terminal by boat.
        All in all, a great and recommendable experience.

        Paid to much to see the unusual shape sandstone rock.
        Just a one hour return boat ride for most visitors where the boatman wait to grab you.
        The rock is smaller than we imagined but we got photos and crossed off our list.
        Luckily, we saw the errawaddy dolphins en route back that made the trip.

        Dear guest, Bako not only for the sea stack but mainly for jungle trekking for it's flora and fauna and wildlife for example proboscis monkey, silver leaf monkey, wild boar and some other wildlife but of course seeing wildlife is very much depends on your luck as well.
