    Sarawak National Parks

    Bako National Park

    Favorite thing: 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.

    But most of all, a place full of exotism

    by DanielF Updated Aug 1, 2003
    Chinese street lamps.

    Favorite thing: Malaysia is modernising itself at a vertiginous pace. In this process, they risk losing a significant part of their identity. Fortunately, there is still much more to Kuching than McDonalds and Holiday Inn. You do not even have to search for exotism. It is at the turn of every corner, like this coarching wall in great contrast with the bright red of Chinese street lamps.

    The Riverfront

    by zrim Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: First thing head down to the waterfront. It is busy, clean and entertaining. All along the waterfront there are restaurants, food centers, shops and old colonial buildings. To cross the river to visit Fort Margherita take a tambang (ferry).

    An Act of Tribalism...!

    by Xinta Written Dec 17, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: Ahhh...you really want to know??? Well, one of my fondest memory was when I had heaps and heaps of fun, partying the whole nite thru together with my friends, both local and ex-pats at Tribes, a fun pub at Holiday Inn Kuching with real cool bands (Headwinds from KL) performing. That was the time I simply can't get enough sleep from all those parties...hehe ;-)

    Also a modern looking city

    by DanielF Written Sep 13, 2002
    Kuching's skyline

    Favorite thing: Kuching is the capital of the State of Sarawak, teh biggest of Malaysia. Apart from its exotism, it looks also quite modern. They have built a lot of high buildings by the river. Most of them host hotels that belong to those ubiquitous international hotel chains, like Holiday Inn or Hilton.

    Fondest memory: When dusk arrives, even those ugly buildings become beautiful when reflected on the Sarawak river.
