Hello everyone!
I'm a new member... would like to know how to get to Kuching from Jakarta (I live in Jakarta). Is there a direct flight? Or do I have to go to KL first then take a connecting flight? Is there an airport in Kuching? What's the best route? Any suggestions?

Sorry for these questions... I planning to visit Kuching maybe next month.

Thanx in advance!

- Batavia Air - Jakarta > Pontianank > Kuching

LAND

and yes, Kuching have an International Airport. :)

wow, thanks for all the infos!

i'll be going on vacation with my family so i'll probably be looking for a 3-star hotel in the city center (so it will be easier to visit tourist spots, right???)

my family and i are true cat lovers so we can't wait to see the 'cat monument' and the 'cat gallery/museum'... any other cat things to see??
