2. Pusat hidupan liar Semenggoh

Pusat yang dibina pada 1920 ini sebenarnya bukan khusus untuk orang utan tetapi adalah tempat rawatan lebih 1,000 ekor haiwan liar. Tetapi oleh kerana ianya cukup berjaya memulihara orang utan, tempat ini sinonim dengan haiwan itu.

Orang utan yang telah dipulihara dilepaskan ke hutan di sekitar kawasan ini dan haiwan-haiwan separa liar ini kerap kembali ke Semenggoh untuk makan dua kali sehari. Jadi ini adalah waktu terbaik untuk anda datang untuk melihat orang utan jantan yang beratnya melebihi 100kg makan di atas pokok bersama-sama orang utan betina dan bayi-bayi mereka.

Menariknya orang utan di sini mempunyai nama seperti manusia. Jadi jangan terkejut bila Delima atau Salina dipanggil turun dari pokok tinggi untuk diberi makan.

Selain melihat orang utan, anda boleh merasa dingin hutan dan mendengar bunyi unggas dengan berjalan melalui 5 denai dan laluan berkayu yang disediakan di sini. Perjalanan denai ini mengambil masa 5 ke 30 minit untuk dihabiskan.


Pusat ini ditutup awal. Semua pengunjung diwajibkan keluar dari pusat ini selewat-lewatnya pada pukul 4:45 ptg.

Malangnya ia ditutup pada hujung minggu.

Jika anda datang dengan bas awam, anda perlu berjalan kira-kira 25 minit dari pintu luar sebelum sampai ke tempat makan orang Utan.

Orang utan sangat sensitif dan mungkin mengamuk jika berang. Patuhi arahan pegawai bertugas pada setiap masa.

4. Kuching WaterFront

Kuching Waterfront, which lines the south bank of Sarawak River, is THE place to sample the city’s cosmopolitan vibes. During the daytime, it offers scenic views of the Astana, Fort Margherita and the Malay kampungs across the river; but night-time is when it really comes alive! It seems like half of the city is out meeting friends, watching a show, or just shooting the breeze. For something different, why not try jetty-hopping along the river on the local Penambang boats, and savour the different sights, sounds (and delicacies!) between the two riverbanks.

A result of a major restoration and land reclamation project, Kuching Waterfront today is the most popular meeting place in the city. Drab warehouses have been replaced with an almost 900m long esplanade, beautifully landscaped and dotted with wooden benches, food stalls, restaurants and entertainment facilities. A number of older buildings have been preserved and incorporated into the design, including the Chinese History Museum, the Sarawak Steamship Building, an open-air theatre and the Square Tower. Modern additions to the Waterfront include a restored Chinese pavilion, colourful musical fountains, and a number of modern sculptures.

5. Taman Negara Gunung Gading

Gunung Gading National Park has a very special star attraction - the Rafflesia, the world’s largest flower - and the park is one of the best places in Asia to view the Rafflesia’s spectacular blooms. Gunung Gading sprawls across four jungle-clad mountain peaks, and its dense primary rainforest is criss-crossed by crystal clear streams and waterfalls.

Gunung Gading was gazetted as a park in 1st August 1983 primarily to provide a conservation zone for the protection of the Rafflesia. It was opened to the public in 1994 and visitors can now view one of the most spectacular plants found on the planet. The park is easily accessible from Kuching on a day trip. Those wishing to stay longer can enjoy Gunung Gading’s other attractions - particularly its rainforest scenery, waterfalls and jungle trails. Some of these trails lead to the peaks of the mountains that make up the park and offer challenging jungle treks.

6. Taman Negara Bako

A National Park since 1957, Bako offers the perfect introduction to Sarawak’s forests and wildlife.  The park covers the northern tip of the Muara Tebas peninsula, an area of 27 sq km.  Despite its seemingly small size, Bako contains a wide range of vegetation – swamp forest, scrub-like padang vegetation, mangrove forest, dipterocarp forest, delicate cliff vegetation and more.   In fact, at Bako it is possible to see almost every type of vegetation found in Borneo. Bako also contains a rich variety of wildlife and a coastline covered with small bays, coves and beaches.  The park has a number of well-marked trails offering interesting walks ranging from short pleasant strolls to serious full-day hikes.  Unlike some national parks, visitors to Bako are almost guaranteed to see wildlife.  Long-tailed macaque monkeys and silver leaf monkeys are ever present, wild boar are often found rummaging around the park HQ, squirrels and monitor lizards are also common. There is every chance of seeing the rare and unusual proboscis monkeys on trails such as Telok Paku and Telok Delima, particularly if you go late afternoon.  You are more likely to see wildlife if you quietly follow the trails and keep listening.
Bako is also home to approximately 275 rare proboscis monkeys, found only in Borneo. The male is an odd-looking creature, with a huge pendulous nose and a large pot-belly, weighing in excess of 20 kg. Both male and female are covered in reddish-brown fur with grey limbs and a white tail. They are mostly arboreal (tree-dwelling), moving about the forest or mangroves in small groups and feeding on young leaves, shoots, sour fruits and seeds. Although it requires some patience, an encounter with a group of proboscis is likely to be the highlight of your trip to Bako. The best times are early in the morning or in the hours before dusk. Telok Delima and Telok Paku are the best trails for viewing the proboscis. The mangroves at Telok Assam are also a good place for viewing proboscis monkeys.
Bako’s plant life is both beautiful, and readily accessible.  All the trails have a great variety of vegetation, from mighty 80-metre dipterocarps to dense mangrove forest.  Carnivorous pitcher plants are found on the Lintang trail.
Bako also has some good white sand beaches that provide perfect resting spots in between jungle treks.  Telok Pandan Kecil is perhaps Bako’s best beach.  After an hour or so the Telok Pandan Kecil trail comes to a rocky headland.  The view down to a beautiful secluded bay, and the thought of a swim in the cool waters, has a magical effect on tired calf muscles.  The following 20 minute descent suddenly becomes more enjoyable.  All of the beaches are bordered by limestone and sandstone cliffs, and the action of the sea has left some remarkable rock formations, such as the famous Sea Stack.
If you take a stroll at sunset on Telok Assam beach near the park HQ, you will see hundreds of swifts hovering around their nests at the rocks at the far end of the beach.  Don’t leave the beach after the sun disappears behind Mount Santubong.  Wait another 20 minutes as the sky’s colours often change dramatically, providing a colourful backdrop to the mountain.

12. Muzium Sarawak
The joy of museums is their capacity to be places where people explore something of themselves, although this does not necessarily come about the way the museum itself may intend."
- Sheldon Annis -

 Muzium Sarawak telah ditubuhkan oleh Rajah Kedua, Charles Brooke pada tahun 1860 dan terima kasih kepada naturalis yang tersohor, Alfred Russell Wallace diatas pengaruhnya. Mereka sedar niat mereka dengan menubuhkan sebuah muzium sementara di Market Place, sepanjang Gambier Street Kuching pada 30 Oktober, 1886 . Kemudian muzium dibina di tapak sekarang dan dibuka kepada orang ramai pada 4 Ogos 1891.

Muzium ini berkembang perlahan-lahan dengan mengekalkan kebanggaan asli, identiti dan tradisi orang-orang kita, rakyat Sarawak. Ia masih kukuh berdiri semasa Perang Dunia Kedua. Berdiri teguh apabila Sarawak mencapai kemerdekaan melalui pembentukan Malaysia pada tahun 1963. Sebagai hasilnya, Muzium Sarawak telah menerima pengiktirafan antarabangsa bukan sahaja sebagai sebuah muzium yang hebat tetapi juga sebagai sebuah pusat penyelidikan di Borneo di mana Jurnal Muzium Sarawak yang diterbitkan setiap tahun untuk edaran dunia sejak tahun 1910.

Ia adalah penjaga budaya yang kaya dan sejarah Sarawak dan repositori kelas pertama budaya Borneo dengan koleksi terbesar di dunia flora dan fauna di Borneo. Bagi menghargai kewujudannya, Muzium Sarawak telah ditubuhkan sebagai sebuah jabatan sepenuhnya di bawah Kementerian Pembangunan Sosial Sarawak. Kini Muzium Sarawak merupakan tarikan utama para pelancong yang melawat Sarawak.


13. Rumah Panjang

Jenis rumah panjang masyarakat peribumi Malaysia Timur biasanya mempunyai bilik-bilik tambahan. Di sebelah depannya ialah serambi dan di sebelah belakangnya pula ialah bahagian dapur.

Rumah panjang itu didirikan dengan bertiang tinggi supaya ia tidak terjejas oleh air bah (banjir). Pada zaman dahulu, ini juga merupakan satu cara untuk melindungkan rumah daripada diserang oleh musuh. Untuk masuk ke rumah itu, seseorang terpaksa menaikinya melalui tangga-tangga yang dibuat dari batang kayu.

Rumah panjang Sarawak[sunting | sunting sumber]
Pada 9 Oktober 2009, kerajaan negeri Sarawak berhasrat memberi nilai dan gaya baru kepada rumah panjang Sarawak tanpa mengorbankan ciri-ciri unik rumah panjang.Menteri Perumahan negeri Datuk Amar Abang Johari Tun Openg menyatakan seminar rumah panjang diadakan bagi mendapatkan pelbagai input daripada pemimpin masyarakat Iban, Bidayuh dan Orang Ulu . Hak milik strata bagi setiap bilik akan dikeluarkan dan dengan itu dapat digunakan sebagai cagaran apabila memohon pinjaman. Insuran rumah juga dapat dikeluarkan demi keselamatan rumah. Biasanya rumah panjang mempunyai 10 dan 20 bilik . Setiap rumah panjang mempunyai "ruai" iaitu ruang bilik bersama yang terletak di bahagian hadapan rumah itu di mana kebanyakkkan aktiviti diadakan di tempat itu.

Arkitek daripada kaum Iban akan memastikan tidak menghapuskan hak "tuai rumah" yang menjadi ketua bagi setiap rumah panjang. Hak pentadbiran mereka akan dikekalkan. Di kampung tradisional Melayu , ketua kampung menjadi penghulu bagi kampung berkenaan.Reka bentuk baru itu mungkin sama seperti konsep sebuah lot kedai dengan kaki limanya tetapi masih mengekalkan reka bentuk rumah panjang.[1]
