Your Destinations

Kuala Lumpur

The capital of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur (or KL as it is affectionately known) is a dynamic and vibrant city, often lauded as the gateway to the East. Its skyscrapers, monorail system, sports stadiums and modern shopping complexes continue to rise and change the traditional skyline whilst cosying up to its fascinating colonial heritage and its temples and mosques.

Explore some of the highlights of this buzzing metropolis, where you will marvel at the juxtaposition of ancient and modern, from the iconic Petronus Towers to the ancient Gombak and Klang waterways. As this cosmopolitan city is most traveller's entry point to Malaysia, there is an abundance of glitzy hotels and highly acclaimed restaurants to keep you satisfied.

Borneo

Next you will jet off to stunning Borneo - an eco paradise island, home to abundant wildlife, lush jungles, the impressive Mount Kinabalu and beautiful beaches. 

The island of Borneo is a mixture of three countries. It is home to the two East Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak as well as the independent kingdom of Brunei, ruled by one of the richest men in the world. The remainder of the island, Kalimantan, belongs to Indonesia. In Sandakan you will find the famous "wild man of Borneo".

The island's many natural attractions are complemented by a fascinating local culture that has preserved centuries-old ways of living into the present day.

If you wish, visit the famous Petronas Towers, the world's tallest twin towers (452 metres) which light up every night at 8pm for a sound and light show.

Day 5: Kuching - Bako National Park - Kuching                                    
Depart at 8am for an excursion to Bako National Park. From the fishing village of Bako, you will reach the oldest park in the state of Sarawak by boat, first through the mangroves and then along the coast (30min). Located on a peninsula in the China Sea, a haven of peace awaits you: extraordinary rainforest where wildlife is abundant, streams, waterfalls, various exotic plants and beaches nestled in the hollow of protected bays. The fauna is just as varied as the landscapes with long-tailed macaques, varans and more than 150 species of birds. Lunch in the park restaurant. Return to Kuching in the afternoon, first by boat (30min) and then by road. Night at the hotel.

Distance / Duration: Kuching - Bako (37 km): about 45 min

The excursion to Bako National Park is seasonal (from March to October only due to the rough seas in the other months of the year), we offer the following alternative for departures from November to February:


Depart at 8:30 am to discover the Sarawak Cultural Village ,a "living museum" or reconstructed village presenting the history and traditions of the different tribes of the region. Seven houses with traditional architecture spread over several hundred square kilometers, with actors in period outfits presenting their lifestyles. Lunch on site and traditional dance show. Return to Kuching for an afternoon of discovery on foot: the many cat statues (the emblem of the city), the Chinatown, St. Joseph's Cathedral and the Chinese temple of Tua Pek Kong. The day ends with a cruise on the Sarawak River to watch the sunset. Night at the hotel.

Distance / Duration: Kuching – Sarawak Cultural Village (37 km): 45min 
Day 6: Kuching - Batang Ai
Depart at 8am for a fabulous journey through the Sarawak region. Your first stop is in Semenggoh to discover the orangutans in their natural environment. Established in 1975, this rehabilitation centre is now a nature reserve. You will be able to attend a feeding session by the rangers. You will also discover a series of rice fields, rubber plantations, pepper and cocoa, typical commodities of the region, but also lush tropical forests, tumultuous rivers and mountain ranges.

Then, stop in a thriving traditional market where your guide introduces you to exotic fruits and vegetables, before continuing on to a pepper plantation to discover how it is grown, harvested and dried. Lunch at a local restaurant along the way. Once you arrive at Batang Ai Pier, you board a motor canoe. You cross the eponymous lake which offers beautiful views of rice paddies and other crops before reaching the longhouse,  the traditional longhouse of the Ibantribe, the head cutters. Don't worry! This tradition has not been relevant since the era of British colonisation. Dinner in the longhouse prepared with fresh produce from the area, then taste the famous rice wine, local alcohol, and attend a traditional dance and music show. Experience the unique experience of sleeping in a longhouse! 

Distance / Duration:Kuching - Semenggoh(30km): about 45min
Semenggoh - Batang Ai Pier: about 4:15 a.m.
Batang Ai Jetty - Longhouse: about 35 min by boat

Be awakened by the mysterious sounds of the forest, then cross the river in a canoe and begin a hike through the jungle. The guide introduces you to all kinds of edible or medicinal plants, century-old trees, vines and other tree ferns. When you reach the top of the hill, you will descend down another trail, helping yourself if you wish with ropes arranged along the trail in case of slippery terrain. You reach a stream where it is nice to rest in the few natural pools before lunch of typical dishes of the area, cooked in bamboo wood fire.

Then transfer to Aiman Batang Ai, a 3-star hotel nestled in the heart of a beautiful nature and built in the pure tradition of longhouses, traditional houses of the Sarawak tribes. Free end of the day to enjoy the attractions of your hotel and the environment. Night at the hotel.
