    Our second visit, and an even better experience. There are 2 feeding times 9-10am and 3-4pm for visits and these times are strictly observed by the rangers. On our visit there were two orangutans in the first area - so we got a very close up (but very well controlled - of the visitors - by the rangers. On going to the feeding area we saw a large male, several solo Orangutans and two females with babies - fabulous.
    The walk from the gate to the feeding area would be quite arduous for your average visitor, we hired a taxi (if you would like his details please message me) and he parked in the car park very close to the feeding area.
    Entrance price is MYR10 for foreigners - which in my humble opinion is too cheap for such an experience.
    A must do

    This place is magical!
    We prebook our stay through the forestry website the room is basic but clean.
    Just make sure you got an e mail/code and then you are all good.
    Get to the Jetty by bus at the Kuching bus station. Is just RM1 and it comes every hour.
    A boat ride cost RM20 one way please mentioned you willing share with others. The boat ride only starts 1 pm due to the low tide during raining season! So no need rush to thw Jetty!
    We did hiking Lintang trail loop seen wildboars and probocis monkey! Lovely day

    Have been going to Niah caves from time to time over the past 40 years. Dont be put off by the slight difficulty of getting to the Park HQ or by the lack of accommodation in the Park or Batu Niah. Can be comfortably done as a day trip from Miri- if own transport.

    The Caves themselves are a pleasant (if sweaty) hour's walk on a wide plankway from the boat landing. Inside there is now a strong (but slippy) pathway to the furthest extent of the caves. The cave paintings have now mostly disappeared as have the wooden relics which were preserved until at least the mid 80s. Birds nests are still gathered by Iban who somehow clamber up rickty poles- how were these erected in the first place??

    I never understood why anyone would find cave tours boring. Pictures really don't do them justice - you need to experience them yourselves. I always thought I'd be disinterested, but this is the third time I'm visiting any kind of caves and I still find them so fascinating. Mulu Caves are even better with their sheer size, I cannot be more amazed! From the bat exodus of the Deer Cave to the underground river in the Clearwater Cave, I really have nothing bad to say about them. Book the tours with the park itself, it's cheaper and the guides are super friendly!

    It was easy to get Grab from Kuching city to SCV but near impossible to get Grab from SCV back to our hotel in the city. Fortunately, one of the staff there, one Mr Habib was kind enough to offer us a ride back to our hotel.
    As for SCV itself, If not for the current renovations, I would’ve given this a five star experience.

    One of the great tourist attraction landmarks with symbol of seahorse light-house,located at Marina Bay and it's convenient as just 15 minutes drive from Miri city .
    Besides seaside scenery,you can find a lot of local Sarawakian food and entertainment here.

    Tour Guide & Boatman: Very friendly and helpful throughout the whole trip with amazing skills in cooking and boating. (seriously not kidding, their cooking is better than the food we ate at a restaurant near Lubok Antu)

    Accommodation: Exceed my expectations! I didn't hold a very high hope towards the lodging in a forest but theirs is amazing! It was clean, with mosquito net and a well-maintained bathroom for each room!

    Electricity: Available from 6+ to 10+ but I have no problem with that. Just charge your phone between that period. It is quite cooling during the night.

    Things to bring: Sunblock is very important during the ride from the jetty to the longhouses, easy to dry clothes, slippers and sports shoes that you won't miss

    We are very lucky that we saw a wild orang utan hanging from the trees during the boat ride, it was amazing!!

    Beautiful view of the South China Sea and great to catch the setting sun. There is a jogging track which is well maintained along the seaside. Ample parking lots are available.

    Summit trail (now yellow markings): 4hrs up 3.5hrs down, bring enough water especially if you're not used to the heat. The last 2.5hrs are climbed on all fours. The trail is very well maintained and safe even for beginners, however very challenging. I'm not in bad shape but my legs barely made it.

    A visit to any city is incomplete without a visit to its local market.

    If you're a foodie, the night market is a perfect food haven for you. Plus, it's also a street food paradise, to boot. Craving barbecued meat? Looking for apam balik (literally 'turnover pancake)? Hungry for tofu desserts? Eager to sink your teeth in local cakes? Fancy steamed buns? Fret not, the night market has got you covered.

    P.S. You may need a bath or a shower after a visit to the night market.

    A national park, it provides amenities for the solo to the group traveler and visitor. Walk through the forest to the many caves within. Explore the multiple caves available with an easy walk through the forest on its boardwalk or you can get a guide to get you on the trails. With mini falls and event views from peaks. There is even a river boat ride to travel down. Get to know people and if your lucky, visit a village that is link by the river.

    We went with the intention to have a nice picnic next to the waterfalls but in the end the waterfalls have been closed off! And please be aware that this is strictly suitable for jungle trekking purposes, especially for those with some hiking experience to ensure a pleasant hike. There are some parts on the Pantu Trial that was very steep that requires a bit of stamina and since the path wasn't very well-maintained, a pair of shoes with good traction is highly recommended. We were quite disappointed that we weren't able to access the waterfall but it was still nice to be able to see it along the hike.

    Upon arrival the gate was closed which was an ominous sign after having checked that the NP was reopened after the COVID pandemic.
    Apparently there had been a storm late April causing damage which needed to be cleared with repairs to be done. At least the authorities could have updated the forestry website.
    Most important - check, check ,check ...........
