Could only give this three stars as we didn’t see ant orangutan. Too much food in the forest for them to come to the feeding station. Think we should have been told that we were unlikely to see them as none had been seen for...More

If you are interested to see orang utan in the wild - this is a must visit. The park is very natural and the jungle is kept in pristine condition. Be aware that sometimes the orang utan do not come out during the prescribed feeding...More

WE went to the Reserve this week, knowing that the chances of seeing orangutans was slim since the native fruit trees are in full production these days. While we didn't see any orangs, the place is remarkable old growth forest and beautiful to visit. Signs...More

In this rehabilitation centre orangutans live free and are supposed to learn finding their own food. There are plenty fruit trees, so the task is not difficult. However, if they are still hungry, there are two daily feeding times to which tourists are invited. When...More

I saw three four monkies and I was disappointed. I expected to see many. For someone who has never seen monekies, not bad an idea to visit.

Don't visit during fruit season, like Dec, as the 31 of them are very well fed themselves and there is not much to see for a long travel. Certainly not worth paying for package tour.

Sadly we didn’t know that Nov - March is the low season due to fruiting n rainy season. Went for the morning feed and there were none in sight. Note: these are wild Orang Utans

Advise for 4D3N Kuching Itinerary (3 Replies)
Hello, My friends and I plan to have a 4D3N Kuching trip in October. We will reach Kuching on 14/10/2017,(around 17:00) and back on 17/10/2017 (around 20:30). So far we are thinking to visit Fairy Cave, Wind Cave, Semenggoh Nature Reserve, Sarawak Cultural Village and Bako National Park. Do you guys have any other places recommended? Since we will arrive Kuching around evening, we have no idea what can we do and where we can visit during that time. Hope can get some advises from you guys....More

On booking.com (which I use often), it says 120 CAD, but when I go to the hotel website directly, it gives me 175 MYR (60 CAD), which is less than half. Am I doing something wrong ?

Hello, sometimes Tune Hotels will have sales by booking online through their website. Same like their sister Air Asia. If the website qouted CAD60, so it is the price. I managed to book RM50 per room (about CAD25) last time and my friend was even luckier. He managed to grab a deal at tune hotel kota kinabalu at 25 cent per room last year!!!
