Another famous one would be at Jalan Padungan. That white cat always dress up according to special occassion. Location map refer here.

360° view of Sarawak from Civic centre Tower Kuching at Jalan Taman Budaya was magnificent.

Semenggoh Wildlife Rehabilition Center, ticket for student was RM1.50.



Richie, the biggest Orang Utan in Semenggoh. Too bad we were not able to meet him. 3 crocodiles there for you to visit while idling waiting the gate to orang utan feeding platform open.


Short briefing before we are allowed to enter feeding area. We were not allow to take photo with flash and hide your umbrella because those orang utan might think they are under attack.


Walking to the feeding area.


Enjoying watching them moved from tree to tree and grab their food at feeding platform.

Found the second toll in East Malaysia on our way to Sarawak's Cultural Village at Damai Santubong.



Some of the nice wall paint at the roundabout before you arrive at cultural village.


Cultural Village's ticket for student cost the damage of RM 15. Sticker on our shirt before enter.

Stop by Damai beach resort to enjoy the view from Damai Beach. Spotted a selfish driver occupied two parking lot. Amaazed by Kuching's parking style.

Fairy Cave and Wind Cave kind usually been visited in one short because they are near to each other at Bau. You will reach Wind Cave before Fairy Cave. I personally prefer enter Fairy Cave first because it involved a a number of staircase climbing and makes me sweat alot while Wind Cave on the other hand very windy.



 A lot of water drops falling down from the hole opening at the top. With the sunlight coming in, it is just like a fairy scene. Too bad my camera wasn't good enough to capture those stunning water dropping effect coming through the top.
Location map to Fairy Cave refer here.


Wind cave was windy and dark. It has 3 type of Passage and toilets are available. Prepare torch light before you come or you can rent it there. Here, you can have a close up view on bats, stalagmites, stalactites and pillars. The pathway inside could be a little slippery due to Bats' excrement. It's better you wear a pair of shoe with strong grip.
All the national parks operating hour is from 8.30 am-4.30 pm.
Location map to Wind Cave refer here.


Before we leave bau, headed to Tasik Biru. The pond's water is really blue in color.
