This itinerary is designed with the adventurous traveller in mind and includes visits to 3 of Borneo's less visited National Parks, Batang Ai, Mulu and the Bako National Park, one of the best places in the world to see wild Proboscis monkeys. After exploring Kuching and Bako, head out deep into the Batang Ai National Park, on a three day trek, sleeping in a local longhouse, a simple jungle camp and a specially built jungle treehouse. Along the way you will meet some of the local tribes whose way of life in this jungle has remained the same for thousands of years. After returning to Kuching, head north to the Mulu National Park with its spectacular caves and pristine rainforest for 2 more days to explore. Continue to Kuala Lumpur for a couple of days reacquainting yourselves with civilisation and experiencing the exciting tastes and atmosphere of this modern capital, a stark contrast to the jungles you have been in for the preceding week. Finally, finish your holiday on the pristine beaches of Pulau Perhentian, a tropical paradise, great for diving and snorkelling or just relaxing on the beach and reviewing your adventure!
