On one of our last days in Kuching we decided to check out the Pitcher Plant and Wild Orchid Garden.  We had obtained a map with bus routes to various tourist sites from the Tourist Information Center, but even so it was tricky to find the correct bus.  The buses aren’t labeled very clearly, so […]

by Heidi

Our major excursion from Kuching was a kayaking trip in search of Irrawaddy Dolphins.  We really hoped to see some of these rare dolphins, but our guides didn’t seem to have much experience in finding them, and the oncoming storm didn’t help either.  The Irrawaddy Dolphins are found in coastal areas and estuaries, which was […]
