Day 1 - Kuching
Day 2 - Bako National Park
Notes: Youâll stay in basic National Park lodgings â fan cooled, multi shared rooms. Most visitors will only come to Bako on a day trip, so after 4pm youâll have the beach to yourselves at a prime time for wildlife spotting and spectacular sunsets. This is the best time to be at Bako National Park, and why we prefer to stay overnight. Even if the accommodation is basic, it's worth it for this experience!
Day 3 - Kuching
Day 4 - Iban Longhouse
Day 5 - Mulu National Park
Notes: The maximum luggage allowance for todayâs flight is 15kg. Excess weight will incur an extra cost to the traveller, not Intrepid.
