Amazing experience to immerse yourself in the simple life surrounded by beautiful nature and lovely locals in the village. Abbie and Dawson were our guides and translators and made our stay in the village run so smoothly and were awesome people to engage with!

Great experience. Well organised. Would not have been possible to have the same level of cultural immersion without Abbie & Dawson.

I scheduled 2 days-trip with Backyard Tour with my twin sister after I've reviewed the tours offered. I wanted to explore nearby forest, waterfall and caves.

Day 1 trip, we departed at early morning heading to Bau. 1st destination was Serikin Market, where I can buy "batik traditional", handcraff made from sarawakian and souvenirs for my family members at affordable price. Then, we explored Fairy Cave, Bau. After that, we had a boat cruise at Blue Lake. I love the view at Blue Lake.

Day 2 trip, we departed at early morning heading to Semenggoh to meet Orang Utan during feeding by the rangers. It was my 1st experience to get closed with Orang Utan. I still can remember how tough they are but still sweet to have the foods among themselves. Then, we departed to Sadir Village. We trekked with local guide about 20-30 minutes to reach at Mabi Waterfall. I still can feel the cold waterfall. Its so refreshed. After that we learned tradional native Bidayuh's cooking, prepared by local guide. I felt glad that Abbie and Lawrence can serve us Halal meals. While waiting for the foods ready, we had the conversations to share about local people surrounding. After done with meals, we departed to Annah Rais Bidayuh Long House. We explored the long house where the people still practice traditional lifestyle. Love to see the people there.

I really recommended to join Backyard Tour for those who loves to get closed to nature, green view, waterfalls and traditional village.

After a long time, finally had my trips with dear one. A fascinating trips to Serikin where you can buy anything from the border between 2 country. And then to Fairy Cave, a beautiful cave with its own myths that I only heard from the old folks. And the infamous Tasik Biru ( Blue Lake ),with legend and history behind it existing.Took a boat around the lake, can see how big is the lake and how blue it water,where it get it name. Really enjoy my one day trips. It definitely a worthy trips to enjoy with friends or family. Releasing my stress over works and get back to nature.
