This is a great place to visit, but getting here is the most tricky part. If you opt for bus, there is minimal information in Kuching as to where to catch the bus from. Also, the bus will drop you about 1km from the centre...More

We went to 3:00pm feeding - couldn't face an early start after a long flight the previous day. It's only 3 ringgits admission although there's no guarantee you will actually see anything. The Ranger gives a briefing (stay away from the orangutans, don't feed them,...More
