Logistics question

by kyhar

Hi,

My group consists of 4 adults and 3 young children.

Can you advise how much it would cost to travel from

a ) airport to harbour view hotel (preferably in one vehicle . read there are minivians..at 20RM..is this still applicable ?)

b) from harbourview hotel to damai beach resort (should we take the shuttle at RM 10 or how can we get a van ? i assume we cant get into one cab ? )

c) from damai beach to airport..Again, how can we get a van ?

Takes a lot,

Get a coupon ticket at the Taxi counter, the safest and [maybe] the cheapest way.
I'm afraid the fare to Damai is almost 50MYR
Vans maight be avaiable otherwise two cars

Hi We were in Kuching May 2009. Went to Dami Beach in the shuttle from our Kuching Hotel to visit the Cultural Village, I think it was 10rm one way, I have a tip which will contain the exact fare. On the return journey a man joined our shuttle and mentioned he came by taxi at 40rm one way.

The shuttle calls at Damai beach.

Hope this helps
Mike

Travel Tips for Kuching

The Cat City

by rajangexplorer

Kuching is capital of the State of Sarawak. So naturally it is the place to go when you want to go to Sarawak because its the place to stop to get to know the rest of Sarawak. Is the gateway to all the other towns in sarawak in terms of information. The best way to discover Sarawak is of course to see where it came from. That can always be found in the Sarawak Museum. Its like having starters before a heavy meal. The main course would depend very much on what you are in Kuching for. Attending Meetings? Nature Adventure? Exploring Culture? You will know that you may want to try bits and pieces of everything or go hard on one thing you like best.

Sarawak National Parks

by muddybok

Don't get me wrong that State of Sarawak is not a nature heaven because I didn't feature much of the 4-wheeling & camping stuffs.

In fact, Sarawak is much better outdoor heaven than Pahang State (as featured in my Negeri Pahang page).

Hope to include more National Parks such as Mulu & others in near future.

Chinese Temple

by gnh

Chinese can be Buddhists, Confucianists, Taoists or ancestor worshippers.
OR any mixture of the above.

So each temple would be unique in its archiecture and design, in addition to the Gods and statues that are worshipped. The variety is endless, so have a good time relishing the sights !

Tea Ceremony...

by Xinta

I know this tip is not important for most travellers. However, for those who travel far to attend a Chinese Wedding of their loved ones might think this is useful. Besides, I thought that this is quite an interesting Chinese Custom to share with those of you who are interested and curious about other races' customs besides their own.

Tea Ceremony is a local custom practise by the Chinese. It's done after the wedding, such as church wedding ceremony. However, on the wedding day, before the bride leaves the house, she will serve teas (holding the cup with both hands)alone to her parents as a sign of respect and to thank her parents for raising her.

Traditionally after the wedding, the newlyweds will serve teas (holding the cup with both hands) to their family members, by inviting them to drink tea by addressing them by formal title, eg Pa, Ma, 1st Uncle, 3rd Aunty, etc. The people being served will sit on chairs. They will serve the teas in order, starting with the groom’s parents then proceeding from the oldest family members to the youngest, e.g. the groom’s parents, then his paternal grandparents, then his maternal grandparents, then his oldest uncles and aunts, and all the way to his older brother, etc. Then this will be followed by the family members from the bride's side. In return, the newlyweds receive lucky red envelopes (“lai see” or 'ang pows' which means “lucky”.) stuffed with money or jewellery. These envelopes are placed on the platter which holds the teacups.

After all the elders have been served, it's time for those family members who are younger than the groom and bride to take over their task, and invite the groom and bride to drink tea. So, the groom and the bride will sit on the chairs and the younger members of the family will serve the tea (holding the cup with both hands) to them by addressing them with formal titles. In return, these younger ones will receive the ang pows which will be placed on the platter.

Sri Srinivasagar Kaliamman Temple

by Willettsworld

The Sri Srinivasagar Kaliamman Temple is a Hindu temple found to the east of the old part of Kuching that looked disused and all locked up when I visited.

Directions: Jalan Ban Hock, at the junction with Jalan Song Thian Cheok
