Bako National Park is the oldest and one of the most frequented attractions in Sarawak, depicting the unrivaled biodiversity of the magnificent Borneo Rainforest.
The park is located about 47 km away from Kuching on the Muara Tebas peninsula, making the national park a strategic spot for local visitors and foreign tourists. Bako was officially made a national park in 1957 and spans for only 27 square kilometers; it is one of the smallest national parks in Malaysia.
Albeit small in size, the park offers diverse landscapes and multiple ecosystems that highlight different parts of the park. Such diversity includes steep coastline cliffs, tropical beaches, mangroves, and coves. Aside from that, the park also features streams, rivers, swamps, beaches, a dipterocarp forest, and diverse vegetation.
