Kuching, Sarawak 2011

Visited Kuching, Sarawak with family 2 weeks ago.
Overall, our program itinerary was as below:

4/12/2011 (Sunday): 
Meet on arrival at Kuching International Airport and transfer to Pullman Hotel, Kuching.

Our Room
View from our room
Christmas Decoration at the Hotel Lobby.
  Since we arrive late, we did not have time to explore the near by places for our 1st night Kuching.
It was raining as well, so we just have our dinner at one of the Hotel Restaurant.

5/12/2011 (Monday):
Breakfast at the hotel. At 8:00hrs, departed for Semenggoh Orang Utan.

The Semenggoh Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre is located about 22KM from Kuching. It is the only one of its kind in Sarawak. Set up in 19975, this 740 hectare of virgin forest is home to Orang utans, honey bears, hornbills, porcupines, storks, eagles, braking deer and monkeys. Most of this animal were rescued from captivity and are being rehabilitated here in their natural surroundings.

 To get to the centre involves a 30 minutes drive by car from the city and 1.6KM walk (20 minutes) which snakes through lush tropical rainforest. This tour provides an opportunity of a lifetime to observe how the Orang Utans are being rehabilitated and trained to fend for themselves before being released into the wild. Visitors are allowed to study and observe the Orang utans at distance.

After half day tour, back to the hotel, free leisure at the Hotel.
My children enjoying their afternoon at the swimming pool with my husband and Mother in-law,
while me, my Mom and Tante Dory walked to India Street and exploring the place nearby. 
I am happy with my iphone , so easy to find places with the map.
Will continue my story in the next post.
