Blue Lagoon 2 nights
Day 1 Kuching/Batang Ai: Travel light for your morning journey of 166 miles by road (approx 5 hours) passing through scenic countryside of quaint little towns, villages, paddy fields, palm plantations interspersed with secondary and virgin jungle. Stop for lunch en route at the small town of Lachau before continuing to Lubok Antu. Transfer by shuttler ferry to the stunningly positioned longhouse style Aiman Batang Ai Resort & Retreat before perhaps joining a short evening nature walk (additional expense).
As an alternative to Aiman Batang Ai Resort & Retreat, 'go local' in dormitory style basic accommodation - an opportunity to experience an original Iban longhouse. Please ask for prices.
Day 2 Batang Ai: Travel for 30 minutes by native longboat towards the Lemanak River to an Iban settlement and traditional style longhouse built on stilts deep in one of the world's oldest rainforests and a truly incredible setting. Take a step back in time as you enjoy a short cultural performance and then observe ancient crafts and experience a blow pipe demonstration by traditionally clad natives. After lunch you have time free to wander before the return journey down river to your hotel.
Day 3 Batang Ai/Kuching: Travel for approx 6 hours, initially by boat and then by road to Kuching stopping for lunch en route at a small roadside town.
Departures: Daily from Hilton Kuching or Damai Beach Resort.
Accommodation: 3* Aiman Batang Ai Resort & Retreat

Tour price: The price shown is based on the best value travel dates in low season and includes two nights accommodation, entrance fees, transfers and services of an English speaking guide.
Note: The tour, by its sheer nature, will suit some and be impossible for others and is not recommended to the less mobile. This is soft adventure and the terrain can also be unpredictable.
