Semenggoh Nature Park: What’s unique about this park, is that it is set up as a refuge for animals. All the animals here come from the places where they had been poached and this sanctuary is a place where they have safety. If an orangutan doesn’t want to come down during feeding time, they won’t be pushed to be displayed.

Semenggoh Nature Park

Sarawak Cultural Village: Go during the early morning when it is still cool to roam around between each of the houses. It is a must see if you want to learn about the local tribes in Sarawak. And the cultural show is entertaining as well which is performed mostly in noon or late evening.

Fairy Caves: Make sure to bring your own water because it could be tiring to climb all the stairs. The sight of natural light shining through on the mossy cave walls are fantastic. Try to visit the Wind Cave which is only a few minutes’ drive from here.
