Aims &Objectives The first week in Kuching, Sarawak is to introduce you to Malaysia which is truly Asia. During this week our aim and objective is to get you immersed in Malayan culture and to also get you acclimatized to Malaysia.
Accommodation is a standard semi-detached house in a residential area called Kali Garden in Kuching. This is one of the typical homes. A small park behind the house is where residents jog and exercise. There is a Malay village and a fishing village within the vicinity. Furthermore, there is a refrigerator which you are welcome to use to store food and beverages.
Sarawak makes access to Borneo’s natural wonders and cultural riches a breeze. Kuching, the capital of Sarawak, is simply unique. No other city in Malaysia has such a romantic and unlikely history, nor displays its charms with such an easy grace. Kuching goes about its own business in a relaxed manner that hasn’t changed in 160 years.
