Head to Bako National Park then take a boat to the far end and walk back to the park centre where you stay. It's a truly amazing little walk. But take torch too ... Once nightfall arrives if you haven't arrived you'd be completely stuck overnight. almost 8 years ago
I would recommend the Niah Caves at Miri. Just take a look at these over 300 photos here:

As stated earlier, bako national park is amazing... Had my best time in borneo there. From the earlier post, miri is a flight away from sarawak... Tbh, i would go to mulu to see the biggest caves instead.... I also theres a place to see raffesia plant and a orangutan sanctuary just outside of kuching.. Wanted t there b4 but ran out of time almost 8 years ago
Above all those, you should also walk the Kuching Waterfront (don't forgot snap a photo of yourself too!) and it's shops.
There's plenty of shops selling unique Sarawakian stuff; all sorts of wooden crafts (think key chain, wooden spoon to floor lamps) which you'll have to pay thru your nose when re-sold, batik cloths (printed and woven), woven place mats for your lovely aunts back home...etc.
Then come evening, take a stroll along Waterfront and grab a bite at any stall you fancy. If you prefer restaurant setting, Hilton Hotel along the bank is fantastic!
Enjoy your holidays! almost 8 years ago
I love the waterfront and the museum is great. Kubah national park is a beautiful day trip by taxi - it's small but I was the only one there for a while, I swam in the waterfall pool at the end of the paved trail. Always have a bag of salt with you to get leaches off just in case. over 7 years ago
