      Kuching - Sibu ferry or flight

      Kuching Mar 20, 2014 at 3:09 AM

      Hi,

      we will travel Kuching - Sibu in August to make trip up the river. We dont expect to stay in Sibu and continue to Song or Kapit (and Belaga later). I think about two ways:
      1) Ferry - It would take 5 hr, so about early midday in Sibu.
      2) Flight - MASwings has cheap flight, early morning, so let say 9am be in Sibu. The prize is twice as much as ferry (?)
      My questions:
      - what are pros and cons except time? MASwing safe? Ferry trip boring?
      - If using ferry from Kuching, can we get into Song in the same day? Perhaps if fly we should stay in Sibu until ferry come from Kuching and follow with the same boat, so loose anyway?

      Thanks

      Thanks a lot

      White Water Rafting in Sarawak ?

      Kuching Oct 3, 2012 at 8:18 AM

      Hi, I enjoyed Kayakking 11 km along Semenggoh River during my Kuching trip in July earlier this year.

      My Rainforest kakis & I will be back next July 2013 & we were hoping to do White Water Rafting this time. Who the reliable White Water Rafting operators in Sarawak we could link up with ?

      2nd query => we would like to go to a proper native spa to do some Sarawak specialty treatments. Any good recommendations for this & would they have a link/website we could check ?

      Lastly => we would like to do a day climb up & down Mt. Santubong, maybe start in the morning & finish in the evening, along with pick-up & return to hotel. Any safe & reliable operators to recommend for this ?

      Thanks in advance to all members who can assist us with these queries.

      Cheers.

      Birdwatching in Mulu National Park?

      State of Sarawak Sep 21, 2012 at 2:59 AM

      Hello fellow travellers!
      Any idea if there's any chance of birdwatching in Mulu National Park? We are going there for the caves, but I am particularily interested in photographing kingfishers.
      Most of the birdwatching places seem to be located in eastern Sabah, but I don't really have time to go there, plus I am not that interested in primates and elephants most of the people go there to see, just the birds.. there must be something closer?
      So, what are the chances of stalking some birds in Sarawak?
