2-1/2 Days in Kuching - Still Struggling with How We'll Spend our Time

Jump to last reply

My original thinking was to attempt a trip to Semenggoh Orang-utan Sanctuary on the first (half) day, a trip to the Sarawak Culteral Village on the 2nd (full) day and a trip to Bako National Park on the 3rd (full) day. That doesn't seem allow a whole lot of time to explore Kuching, however. Also, since this will be our first destination after coming from the east coast USA and spending the night in Singapore, we may or may not be feeling the effects of jet lag. Furthermore, I have heard that Bako is best seen on an overnight (which we have no inclination to do) as the wildlife is most visible early in the morning.

My thinking now is to take it slow on the first (half) day: wander the riverfront, do a little shopping and enjoy a pleasant dinner somewhere. Then we could do the orang-utan sanctuary on one day and the cultural village on the other day. This would leave additional time to explore Kuching and perhaps we could take in the Weekend Market and do a sunset river cruise without feeling pressed for time. My reason for asking all this is I am just not sure about the scale of Kuching - is it relatively small or is it somewhat spread out?

Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.
