  • Of course gives no guarantee that you can see orangutans, because these "wild" live in the forest. We were lucky, that three orangutans came shortly before the end of the feeding period. To keep in mind is that one comes back locally only by public bus to Kuching, when not on the road with a tour. We went with grave and couldn't find any driver for the Rücjfahrt.

  • Really nice if we have the chance to see the orang sanctuary is magical. No need to guide this is a very good taxi from Kuching. However if the monkeys are not the appointment, there is really not much to deal with.

Where to stay in Kuching

The most popular area to stay in Kuching remains just south of the Sarawak River, where you can find affordable hotels offering basic but comfortable rooms. South of Jalan Main Bazaar, budget backpacker accommodations in the form of hostels and guesthouses draw many visitors with limited means. Consider the districts north of the river for more exclusive and resort-style alternatives.
