    Kuching gem of a hotel

    We booked to stay initially for four nights and ended up staying for twelve. We loved Kuching and the LimeTree was a perfect base for exploring all the wonderful sites that the city and surrounding areas have to offer. We were in room 405, it was one of the cheapest rooms as it didn't have a window, in spite of that it was absolutely fine, the room was spacious, good and quiet air con - we'd thought it might be stuffy and airless without window but not the case at all. Great shower, powerful and hot water at all times. Excellent breakfast, good choice of Malay and Western foods. Wonderful staff - warm, friendly, and smiling at all times. Rooftop bar was a great spot for enjoying some wonderful sunsets over the city and views across the river. Good food too, welcomed after a long hot day trekking when going out for dinner felt too much effort. WiFi worked well, could be a little slow occasionally of an evening. Centrally located - less than 5 minutes from the waterfront, about 25 mins walk to Kuching Bus Centre but bus for Bako National Park stops just a few mins from hotel which is real handy. Round the corner from hotel (turn left out of entrance, cross over, turn right) there is a great and cheap laundry, Spotfree, brilliant service, washing done within a few hours and delivered back to the hotel, for less than £5 for a week's worth of washing. We wish there was a LimeTree in every Borneo city, it would definitely be our choice - at £28 per night, excellent value and sorry to leave.

    Good hotel, nice rooms, quiet, good breakfast, reasonable location (only 5 minutes walk to the main part of the riverfront), staff very helpful with all requests and can arrange transport at competitive prices, just booked transport to the airport for 25 RM, slightly cheaper than the taxi on the way in.

    Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and would recommend to anyone else visiting Kuching.

    Supernature in the wilds of Borneo

    Have you ever fancied going to Borneo, had a look at the holiday packages available and perhaps then been put off by the price? Well, we certainly were but whilst in Koh Samui and with our wanderlust returned, so one day I said, do you fancy going wild in Borneo? We used our quiet time in Koh Samui to research and were amazed at just how big the …

    Another early rise today, this is starting to become a habit! But as I couldn't sleep last night it wasn't a problem to be up and about and out to catch the bus just before 7am.

    Today we headed to Baku National park. Well prepared, having read all the reviews about the park, dressed in our hiking boots, trousers, rain jacket, carrying …

    So we did.. We slept until almost 3pm today, other than a brief interlude of awakeness to go downstairs for some breakfast, to then return to the room to go back to bed!! Still, they say you shouldn't argue with your body, and mine was screaming "SLEEP!", so I could not refuse.

    But we did still get out, went on a boat down the river. It's …

    You probably won't be in for a surprise, at least we weren't. After another restless night with only a couple of hours sleep and another box of tissues consumed we headed out around 6am, walked up to Little India and got on the bus to head out of the city and to the Semmenggoh Orangutan Sanctuary in the jungle. After being dropped at the bottom of …

    Today we have been mainly seeking out shade. The forecast said it was only 35c, but within 20 yards walk of the hotel we are already sweating buckets!! As such we have not ventured far, instead favouring the shade offered in the backstreets. Popped into a couple of chinese temples and even with a blocked nose and a cold the smell of burning incense …
