Kuching by bike , Kuching Borneo, Borneo (Sarawak)
This unique heritage and culture experience on bike gives this vibrant city and its surroundings even more charm. Your local guide will take you to key heritage sites in the town centre before crossing the Sarawak river on a traditional Sampan, your bikes in tow. On the other side, you’ll whizz past the traditional wooden houses, sample tasty local snacks in tiny Malay villages and greet the local people as you go.
We all remarked on how well tourism blended in to the local community in a positive way. At no point did we ever feel exploited or taken advantage of. We felt privileged to visit the Penan tribe in Mulu and enjoyed the market there without any pressure to spend money. Visiting Abai village and planting the trees was also a great experience for all ages of our party. Again, a privilege.
