Sarawak (Borneo) Overland

Sarawak, the East Malaysian state on the island of Borneo offers every traveler the experiences that satisfy. Undoubtedly, one of the major attractions of Sarawak is its people who are famed for their warmth and hospitality. It is for this inevitable reason that this overland tour finds it obligatory for the visitors to begin with an overnight stay in a traditional Long-House to truly experience the old values and the tribal customs and traditions of the native Ibans who live on much as they did a century ago.

 

Recommended Tour Itinerary:

Day 1:   Kuching- Arrival

Arrive Kuching International Airport, meet our local guide and transfer to Grand Margherita Hotel located at downtown Kuching and by the legendary Sarawak River. Check in and overnight.

 

Day 2:  Kuching – Lemanak River Iban Long-House  (B/L/D)

Today we travel by road for 5 hours along the country road and by native longboat for 45 minutes along the Lemanak River to spend a night at a traditional Iban Longhouse. Many Longhouses here are set on iron posts and contain several family rooms. The community is ruled by a headman and a council of elders and most Ibans are simple cultivators of hill rice and pepper vines plantation. This evening, you will be entertained to a jungle feast by the Headman followed by an evening of native dances and merry making, mingling and talking to the Iban hosts until you wish to retire.  

Day 3:  Lemanak River - Sibu  (B/L/D)

After a jungle breakfast, we leave this river community behind, travel downstream and then by road for 4 hours to Sibu, a busy trading port situated 60 km upstream on the mighty Rejang River and much of its population originally came from China's Foochow Province. The Port is often full of rushing ships that plough the waterways, mainly trading in timber which is floated down from the highlands. There is a lively market with plenty of fresh seafood. This evening we have a seafood dinner at one of the local restaurants. Overnight at Kingwood Hotel.

 

Day 4:  Sibu – Bintulu- Similajau National Park  (B/L/D)

This morning we journey through green countryside on the Pan-Borneo Highway which leads us gently onwards to Bintulu Town, then along the coastal road to Similajau National Park. The Park offers visitors one of the most beautiful and unspoiled golden beaches in the country, the unique geological characteristic of its coastal area and the conservation of flora and fauna. Tonight we stay at the Park chalets.

 

 

Day 5: Similajau – Niah National Park  (B/L/D)

After a morning's drive of 2 hours, you arrive at the Niah National Park. The Niah Caves are perhaps one of the most important archaeological sites in Asia where traces of human habitation and relics dating back as far as perhaps 40,000 years were unearthed. We visit the Niah Museum and walk on a 3 km plank walk through the forest to reach the caves. The caves are also home to countless tiny swifts who build their nests high up the cliff using their own sticky saliva which becomes very hard. These are the source of the famous Chinese delicacy 'birds nest soup'. Overnight at park chalet.

 

Day 6:  Niah Cave - Miri  (B/L/D)

Today after breakfast we drive to the oil town of Miri. There is time for a short city tour visiting to the ‘Grand Old Lady’ standing atop the Canada Hill. This is where the first oil well started pumping in 1901. Visit native market and handicraft shops. We stay overnight at downtown Mega Hotel.

 

Day 7:  Miri – Departure  (B)

Your memorable tour of Sarawak Overland concludes with a departure transfer to Miri Airport.
