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.

Individually designed by Federico himself, each villa or sarang
(nest) is made to accommodate the area on which it is perched, and not the other way around. Read the rest of this entry »

Annual arrival of hundreds of Raptors: join Raptor Watch Weekend on 
Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th of March 2009 

Who they are and what they do

rww-raptorsEvery year the Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) celebrates this annual arrival of hundreds, sometimes thousands of honey-buzzards, goshawks, sparrowhawks, Black bazas and many more birds of prey. These amazing winged creatures pause in the Tanjung Tuan Forest Reserve (not far from Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan) as they make their way on their long sojourn to their breeding grounds in Japan, Siberia, Kamchatka, Korea and other far-flung northern areas.
