As far as backpacking goes Kuching has not really embraced the concept as well as places I have already visited in Peninsular Malaysia. Accommodation is more expensive here and facilities such as laundry service seem to be rather pricey too. There is a lack of 24 hour services, like internet cafes and supermarkets.
The climate is pretty similar to Penang but I have a feeling the further you get into the wilderness the more humid it becomes. It has rained a couple of times today but only for a short while. In the heat it always comes as a welcome relief and cools the air just a little. I think I am pretty used to the heat now and am needing less water than I used to when I first arrived in KL. It's going to be quite tough flying into Auckland in August and arriving in the middle of winter!
