  • 走出户外:在古晋必做的户外活动

    1. 去海龟岛看海龟 A post shared by Visit Sarawak (@sarawaktravel) on Jan 24, 2017 at 5:18pm PST 达郎沙当国家公园(Talang-Satang National Park)是由四座海岛组成,是砂拉越首个海洋保护区。从古晋的达迈海滩(Damai Beach)乘坐30分钟的快艇就可以抵达大沙当岛(Pulau Satang Besar)。大沙当岛着重于海龟的保育,在这里可以看见濒临绝种的海龟,因此也被称为“海龟岛”。由于岛屿被珊瑚礁围绕着,这就给海龟提供了天然的庇护场所,这也是海龟选择到这里下蛋的原因。达郎沙当国家公园设立了海龟孵化所,由看守人员监测登岸的海龟,并将龟蛋移置到孵化所,最后孵化的小海龟将被释放回到海滩上,让他们自由活动。每年的五月至九月是海龟的产卵季节,如果在这段时间到访海龟岛,看见海龟上岸的机会是最高的。 2. 去人猿庇护中心看人猿 A post shared by Lillian Tveit (@lilliansense) on Oct 29, 2016 at 8:34am PDT 距离古晋市中心大约一个小时,士孟谷野生动物保护区(Semenggoh Nature Reserve)是许多野生动物爱好者必到的地方,其中人猿庇护中心更是游客们集中的地方。庇护中心和动物园不同,他们存在的目的是为人猿提供训练,好让他们重新适应野外的生活,并确保它们有足够的生存能力后才让他们重回野外。想在这里亲眼看见人猿的机会并不是百分之百,不过在喂食时段里人猿出现的几率比一般时段高。来到庇护中心的人猿一般都是为了觅食和寻求保护,所以游客们不能大声喧哗,照相的时候更不能使用闪光灯,以免把人猿吓跑。 3. 探索仙女洞 A post […] More

  • Sacred Ink

    The longhouse was enveloped in darkness. The howls of a dog pierced the still of the night and sent a shiver down my spine. Seated cross-legged on a mat, I listened with rapt attention to the tuai rumah (headman) as he recounted tales of courage […] More
