Joanna & Nick (New Zealand) and Alice (France) joined guide David Lim on a day trip to some of the local attractions in Kuching recently. A day trip that starts at 745am and ends at 5pm, the 3 tourists sure had a full day of sightseeing!

The trip started with an early morning stop at the local Kota Sentosa wet market. A great place to see local faces selling local produce. Here, Joanna, Nick and Alice get to do a little bit of shopping for their later ‘surprise’ meal.

After that, it is off to the famous Semenggoh wild life center to chance upon the Orang Utans. A first time visit to Kuching can never be complete without a visit here.

As the day progresses, David was beginning to be a little bit worried about the weather. Dark clouds looming over the horizon, it was time to head over to the long house village at Semuti. It was timely as after drive took almost 1.5 hours. By the time they arrived, the clouds have cleared, promising a good day ahead.
