Cruising through Kuching

On arrival into Kuching, you’ll be collected at the airport and transferred to your hotel. Borneo might not be known for its cities, but Kuching is truly a gem and the perfect place to begin or end your family adventure. Named, the ‘Cat City’ and with references all over to its feline friends, as well as its delicious food, relaxed vibe and a melting pot of cultures, it’s undoubtedly the most family-friendly urban area in Borneo and a place that all the clan are sure to fall in love with.

Day trip to Bako National Park

Today you’ll head on a day trip to Bako National Park. Teaming with wildlife, including numerous species of monkey, yet within easy reach of Kuching, this trip is a great jungle experience for all the family. Your experienced guide will lead you through the winding boardwalks and rainforest trails, helping the kids to spot the mischievous Macaques, Silver Leaf Monkeys and of course the most famous resident, the funny-faced Proboscis Monkey.
