Today I finished writing an article on Kuching in Malaysian Borneo for an inflight magazine. The piece described the varied cultures, cuisine, jungle wildlife, incredible architecture and sights of this refined city by the Sarawak river. It was a joy to step back into the humidity, smells and experiences that is Asia, even from here at my computer in Australia.

One of the things I loved about Kuching was how there was definitely jungle beyond the town limits, but you could also discover the flavours of Sarawak’s 40 sub-ethnic groups, rare flora and fauna, colourful arts and crafts and tasty food without leaving the city.

Here’s a brief photographic insight into some of the experiences of Borneo.
