This is how real nature should be. And I don’t really feel there is a need to stay overnight. In fact I’m glad we didn’t. The boat trip was a great experience and quite unique. Easy walking tracks. Recommend.

For me it is the best national park to go if you like trekking. Although there are no orangutans, you can spot the proboscis monkeys, wild boars and more unique animals.

Stayed 2 nights in a basic cabin but paid a bit extra for aircon. Worth it. Came looking for an environmental and wildlife experience and wasn't disappointed. The scenery was beautiful and the jungle amazing. Plenty of wildlife. The food was very basic but cheap....More

We debated whether to take a tour to Bako or go by ourselves. We went ourselves after talking to other travelers and it was easy. No need to pay for a tour or guide. Others have explained the bus and boat trip to the National...More

It was an easy day trip from Kuching. The walk can be demanding if you go for the small loop plus one of the beaches. Although we were thinking the timing provided by the park were conservative, it took us almost that time to complete...More
