Kuching is a perfect destination for a traveller to start exploring Sarawak in Borneo, especially if you travel with children and are aware of responsible travel.

Kuching  is a nice town offering a wide range of good museum – maybe among the best in Malaysia -, nice heritage buildings from the 19th century, wide and safe sidewalks that allow you to discover the place slowly  – everything is at a walking distance –  and the best sunset I have ever seen in Malaysia

Kuching giant spider BakoNature and wilderness – proboscis monkeys, orang-outan, turtles,birds, big spiders..- are easily accessible at less than one hour, as well as nice and quiet beaches. And no leeches waiting for your blood, that’s great! 

The place offers also many opportunities to learn about the indigenous communities of Sarawak.

Check out the 2 posts we already published :

The Society Atelier, which conducts research and promotes the traditional craft of Sarawak, especially weaving. Now you can even have your lunch in the beautiful bungalow.

The Tun Jugah Fondation, Kuching, Sarawak : a must see museum for textile lovers especially for the indigenous ikat weaving of the Iban, called Pua Kumbu.

Who they are and what they do

japamala-kinnaree-overseeing-the-walkway-to-the-resortThis is a resort like no other in Pulau Tioman, Pahang. It is luxury without decadence; a rustic escape with all the amenities of a 5-star hotel; a soothing sanctuary in an undisturbed corner of an otherwise busy island. Japamala Resort is high-end comfort at minimal cost to the planet.
Maple Loo-Asaro and Federico Asaro are avid fans of nature and this husband and wife team has transferred this passion to their resort. The most outstanding feature of this place is how it has incorporated all the elements of nature into the design of each of their villas.
