Kuching Holiday Day 3

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

Getting back to my travel post on my trip to Kuching. Now for Day 3, we hired a chartered van to bring us around for the whole day. One van is RM250 regardless of how many people ride the van. Well, the more the merrier right? :) For Day 3, we visited Semenggoh Wildlife Centre, Uncle Jong's Crocodile Farm, Friendship Park, Cat Museum :)


So the first place we visited was the Semenggoh Wildlife Centre to see... *drum rolls* Orangutans!! This is a nature reserve where the orangutans are not caged up but they actually live in the area and during feeding times, the park rangers will bring out fruits and leave it on the feeding platform and we just have to patiently wait for the orangutans to come out and eat. If you're lucky, you will be able to see most of them but I've heard that during the fruit season, it is quite difficult to see them because of the abundance of fruits in the jungle that they will not come out to eat. 

Entry tickets cost RM 5.00 per person and here are some pictures of the area :)

A Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. So, what is a Liebster?  The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. Isn't that sweet? Blogging is about building a community and it's a great way to connect with other bloggers and help spread the word about newer bloggers/blogs.

Kuching Holiday Day 2

Friday, August 02, 2013

Continuing on to my next holiday post still at Kuching :)

For the second day we went on a little exploring trip that literally made our feet sore and tired. We walked and walked the whole day and by the time we reached our hotel we were super exhausted. I think we finished walking and touring all the museums at the town center and also knew our way around quite well. We had dinner at the famous TopSpot Seafood Food Court which was reasonably priced and tasty as well. We also went on a taxi river cruise ride which is RM 20 per person and the boat takes you up the river. You can opt to take the last boat so that you can catch the sunset. However if you are staying at the Tune Hotel please remember to check if there are any promotions for guest. Because... we opt to take the taxi ride as we the original River Cruise was a little too heavy on our budget, RM 60 per person but you get to sit on a mini cruise ship with on board entertainment and refreshment. We totally missed the promotion and totally *face palm* ourselves! If we had known about the promotion we could have rode on the cruise for just an additional RM10!! Anyways there is always a silver lining as we managed to secure ourselves a chartered van to take us sight-seeing the next day. So here are some photos of Day 2 :)

This huge tree is a cotton tree which is super big and has huge thorns!
