After an early breakfast, check out from your hotel. Depart to the Semenggoh Nature Reserve. The entire facility occupies an area of 740 acres and acts as a sanctuary for orangutans that have been rescued from captivity and young orphaned primates. Many have been returned into the surrounding area of the nature reserve. But there are few that will never re-learn their natural skills due to a long association with, and dependence on, humans. There are daily scheduled feeding times. However, sightings of these primates during feeding times are not guaranteed because the orangutans roam freely within the nature reserve.
After your visit to the Orangutan Centre, continue the journey by air-conditioned vehicle to Sri Aman Division. Along the way, visit the native market in Serian, pass by rice fields and visit a pepper plantation (if time does not permit to stop on the way, a stop is made on the way back from Sri Aman). The last stop is at Lachau, a small up-country Chinese village, for lunch, before proceeding to Sri Aman.
Upon arrival at Sri Aman, you will be checked into your Seri Simanggang hotel.
In the afternoon, take a guided stroll of Sri Aman town, visit Fort Alice (closed every Monday's) and the century-old Tze Yin Khor Chinese temple located on the bank of the Lupar River.
Overnight at Seri Simanggang, Deluxe Room.
