Kuching is one of my fave cities in South East Asia. Maybe because I got a chance to spend a month there and volunteer at the MonkeeBar. Apart from that, I had the wonderful opportunity to revisit with Sarawak Tourism Board and that’s when I had one of the best tours in Kuching – Irrawaddy dolphin cruise.  This wonderful cruise takes you along swamps and fishing villages, plus if you are lucky, like we were – You get to see cute Irrawaddy dolphins as well.
