Your day-by-day itinerary
Arrival at Damai Beach
Whether you’re coming straight from Kuching Airport, or from elsewhere in Sarawak, we’ll arrange a transfer to take you straight to your hotel by the beach. Your afternoon is free to do as you please – relax by the pool, take a dip in the sea and watch the sunset. If you fancy a stroll then there is a little village nearby where you can pick up some local food.
This morning your guide and driver will pick you up after breakfast and take you to the area of Bengoh, which is the starting point of your kayak adventure. You’ll paddle slowly down stream in a small group admiring the beauty of limestone rocks and rainforest surrounding. Your guide will stop at the friendly village of the Bidayuh tribe, where you can meet local people and have a refreshing dip in the river. You’ll arrive back at your hotel in the afternoon, and can spend the rest of the day however you choose.
Departure from Damai Beach
It’s time to leave the beach behind, and we’ll arrange a transfer to the airport for you to meet your flight back home, or onto to your next destination.

Semenggoh Orangutan Centre
During your time in Kuching, you have the option to visit Semenggoh, a temporary home for various endangered wildlife in Sarawak, especially orang-utans that have either been orphaned or rescued from captivity. Here, they’re trained in all the survival skills, to venture out into the wild and fend for themselves. This tour can be arranged either in the morning or afternoon, to make sure it fits with your day and you get to see feeding time with the the orang-utans.
£45 - per person
River Sunset Cruise
If you fancy a river sunset cruise, then in the late afternoon you’ll head to the jetty and board your boat taking you along Kuching’s famous city river. This is a great way to view Kuching from a different angle and will transport you back to a time when goods were shipped across the city, before the invention of modern roads. Sit back and relax on the deck, get yourself a drink, and watch the sun go down over the horizon… Bliss!
