Discover nature and culture in the Borneo region of Sarawak, East Malaysia, through an itinerary that will bring you through the best features of local culture and outdoors scenery.
Most of the tour will bring you South-Southeast of Kuching, towards the seaside and the Kalimantan (Indonesian Borneo) border. You will visit two of the most important caves in the area, the orangutan sanctuary of Semenggoh, Sematan village paddy fields and the nearby beach (and also a waterfall where you can have a bath if you want). You will also have a taste of Sarawakian culture and food visiting a local Bidayuh village, where people have been producing handicrafts such as typical shell chandeliers since generations, or the rice farmers with whom you will have a simple lunch. You will be accommodated by the large and quiet Sematan Beach, located on a huge, stunning bay. Last but not least, a trekking at the Tanjung Datu National Park, one of the less touristy in the area due to its remote location which can be reached exclusively by boat.
This itinerary includes private vehicle with a driver and a local person as a guide who will take you around for the entire tour. While in Sematan you will stay at the Palm Beach Resort; you can also visit nearby locations by bicycle while there (provided). We recommend to have with you suitable shoes and outfit, an insect/mosquito repellent, a raincoat (a disposable one will do), a hat for the sun, sunscreen, some water and a swimsuit if you want to swim in Sematan or take a bath in the waterfalls.
