The last place we visited in Borneo was Kuching, the city of the cats. Unfortunately we had a bit of drama missing our flight from Mulu to Kuching (that only departs once a day) but the lovely MASWings got us on the next flight to a much larger airport so that we could purchase a new ticket to Kuching. We therefore arrived a bit later than expected, so we went to dinner and relaxed for the evening. The next day Richard wasn't feeling too great so we had a relaxing day exploring the city and resting by the pool.
As Richard was staring to feel better, we decided to go to the beach in the morning (our first time on a beach this trip!!) and the Sarawak Cultural Village. It was so hot and humid that we could barely lay in the sun, I have never had this issue! For dinner, we went to Zinc, a French/Spanish fusion restaurant. I would highly recommend going there if you are ever in Kuching, the owners were super friendly and it had a great atmosphere. It is expensive for Kuching, but compared to the UK it is still cheap.
Next up, we went to Bako National Park, for a day of trekking and looking for Monkeys. This was very similar to Mulu, however we did see lots of macaques and other creatures we had not seen before. As we had not yet seen an Orangutan (and you can't go to Borneo without seeing an Orangutan!) we visited the Semenggoh Nature Reserve. Here they look after Orangutans who have been mistreated, get them back to full health, then release them into the wild. As the Orangutans know they can get food from the reserve, they will come back for food, but you are not guaranteed to see them. Thankfully we were very lucky and got to see not just 1, but 4 or 5 of them! They are amazing animals, so human like - it was a real treat to see them in the "wild".
That is the end of my Borneo Photo diary - I hope you enjoyed it :)
