Arrive in the City of Kuching
The adventure begins in the Malaysian Borneo state of Sarawak, known to locals as Bumi Kenyalang ("Land of the Hornbills"). Sarawak doesn't struggle to live up to its title as the region 'where adventure lives'.
You'll start your journey in the cosmopolitan capital of Kuching, which still retains their fantastic ‘old quarters’ sitting comfortably beside trendy cafes and lodges dotted along the Sarawak river. A perfect place to acclimatise before heading inland which will feel another world entirely, and for many it's the Borneo that they had expected to see. Vast rivers, the Rejang and the Baram, drain the highland interior west to east all the way to the coast some 600km away.
Throughout the program you will be provided with 3 meals a day. Expect lots of fruit, rice, noodles, fish and meat with vegetables and salad.
