Bau is in Sarawak, Malaysia. Located only an hours drive out of the city of Kuching, Bau is a regional area and home to the decendants of the Bidayuh tribes. The people are extremely friendly and the place feels very safe. Its a big difference from the city of Kuching but much more rewarding with mountains to climb and rivers to swim in.
Buses run every hour from Kuching's downtown or it takes an hour to drive.
There is a homestay program offered in a local village and helps to provide travellers with a real experience of what Malaysian life is like but also offers some amazing scenary and places to visit such as the Blue Lake, Fairy Caves, Bung Jagoi and the Serekin Market, famous for its location along the Malaysian and Indonesian border.
Home Stay Program Accomodation with the local homestay program is available . The program provides accomodation, breakfast, lunch and dinner and tourguides all in one. Activities and local knowledge of places are included and overall is a great experience.
