Itinerary

Day 1

We meet you at the airport and once settled in at the hotel we use our favorite vehicles to explore the city. With our bikes we visit Kuching's oldest Chinese temple and continue along the river to the Astana, visiting the residence of the Governor of Sarawak and Fort Margherita.

Day 2

Our day starts with a visit to the Semenggoh Nature Reserve a home for injured and orphaned orangutans. Then we get on our bikes and cycle on back roads through plantations, forests, rice fields and farming villages. If we are lucky we'll sight the rare Raffelesia flower. We finish our ride at Annah Rais village.

Day 3

We cycle through beautiful scenery to the Sarawak River and trade pedals for paddles. A relaxing kayak downstream takes us to a Dayak village for lunch. Then it's back on the bikes to ride to Siniawan, a town dotted with Chinese wooden houses.

Day 4

The road is flat but windy today, making it an easy and fun ride. We visit the Wind Cave Nature Reserve and follow the enormous sandstone ridge of Mt. Kubah to Matang Wildlife Centre for another chance to see the orangutans in their natural setting.

Day 5

We have a long ride today as we cycle along the coast to Lundu, crossing numerous creeks on narrow bridges. At Gunung Gading National Park we stop for a dip in a waterfall before riding to our beach resort. At the hotel we'll have an opportunity see turtle hatchlings at their conservation area.

Day 6

We say goodbye to baby turtles before heading out on a dirt back road and off the beaten track to the old trading post of Semantan. We arrive at the beach in time for lunch and have the afternoon free to enjoy the swimming pool or beach.

Day 7

Enjoy your last morning by the sea and take a walk on the long beach before we drive back to Kuching. In the late afternoon we take a cruise through the spectacular mangroves near Kuching to sight exotic birds and animals before our farewell dinner.

Day 8

Depart Sarawak for a flight back home or you can extend your stay in Borneo.
