Kota Kinabalu Marine Parks

Unfortunately, it is endangered by mass tourism and poor monitoring. Check out what you can expect to see if you are planning a visit to Manukan Island, Sapi Island, or Mamutik Island. $1=RM (MYR) 3.21 Unlike the city of Kuching in Sarawak, there is not much to do in Kota Kinabalu, and we were a little bit disappointed when we explored the city. We came to Sabah after seeing a very beautiful picture of the sea, clear water, and bungalows on stilts just upon the clear water. Heaven on earth, we thought. Sea and sea activities are actually...

Semmengok Wildlife Rehabilitation Center Step by Step

Summary: Check out how to visit the Semmengok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Center on your own, how to go there, what to bring, things you should know. Orangutans are not totally wild there because they were rescued and fed, but they are still free and in the trees, not in cages! So this was a really good opportunity to see them because it is (as they told us) very difficult to spot totally wild orangutans. It takes half a day to do this visit. We arrived too late (at 10:20 am), as they close the park from 11 am to 2 pm. People were bitten by the monkeys in years past, and they don’t let anyone inside anymore without the monitoring of the park rangers. So we spent three and...

Kuching Travel Guide: The City You Never Want to Leave

Summary: There are so many things to do in this peaceful city that it is really difficult to do them all, especially if you don’t have much time. We stayed 40 days in Kuching (we could have stayed even longer), enjoying the Sarawak River, the city and its dense ethnical diversity background, as well as the surrounding parks. Here is how we experienced Kuching: $1=RM (MYR) 3.21 When we first arrived in Malaysia we had planned to stay on the peninsula without visiting Borneo Island, but when we found out that the flights were that cheap (there were flights on Air Asia starting at $10!), we didn’t hesitate much. We had already been deprived of the Perhentian Islands...
