I took an amazing 12 day trip to Myanmar arranged by Jack from Audley Travel. I have travelled the world extensively and this was by far one of the best trips I have ever taken. After speaking with Jack about my interests and listening to his suggestions he was able to design a perfect itinerary for me. The professionalism and dedication of the guides and everyone involved with Audley Travel made this a trip of a lifetime. I would highly recommend this travel company to my friends and family and look forward to using their services again.
I'll never forget when…
Bako National Park covers 2,742 hectares of a rugged sand stone peninsula to the east of the Bako River near Kuching, the capital of Sarawak. Millions of years of erosion have created an impressive and breathtaking coastline of steep cliffs, rocky headlands and stretches of white, sandy bays. Wave erosion at the base of the cliffs has carved many of the rocks into fantastically shaped sea arches and seastacks.
The coastline is also dotted by a sandstone cliff vegetation characteristic of Bako. Other major vegetation types include the mangrove forest, mixed dipterocarp forest, peat swamp forest, kerangas (heath) forest, and kerangas scrub on the plateau; it's possible to see just about every type of vegetation found on Borneo at Bako National Park.
Well worth a visit even to experience the novel way to enter the park- from the sea.
