2. Bako National Park

  Bako National Park is a national park in Sarawak, Malaysia, located in the Kuching Division. It is Sarawak’s oldest national park, having been established in 1957. It is located near the point of the Muara Tebas peninsula, at the confluence of the Bako and Kuching Rivers, and has an area of 27.27 square kilometers. Kuching is roughly 40 kilometers away by a vehicle. The sandstone has been eroded over millions of years, resulting in a coastline of towering cliffs, craggy headlands, and stretches of white, sandy coves. Many of the rocky headlands have been cut into beautifully shaped sea arches and sea stacks with colorful patterns generated by iron deposition at the base of the cliffs.
