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.
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,then proceed to the famous sea stack before returning to Kuching City.
