Public bus or shuttle advice

Hi to all...

I will be travelling to Kuching for 5 days in early December.

I would love to visit Kubah National park and Mount Santubong.

I need some peace and quiet for a relaxing holiday...

Does anyone have a time table for the public bus schedule?

I am planning on booking Telang Usan Hotel. Where should i take the buses from.

Do any of you know if there are any shuttle service from this hotel?

Any advice or help is greatly appreciated...Thanks in advance!

In the morning buses start from Kuching to Kubah about every hour. If I remember correctly Matang Transport do this route. Kubah Park is close to the city, only 20 km.

Enjoy

Check this review of Kubah for bus info:

tripadvisor.com/…REVIEWS

I'd say the bus would take around 1 hour, as driving is a good 45 mins.

Have you visited Bako before? Its a more interesting park IMO.

Shuttle bus to Sarawak Cultural Village at foot of Mount Santubong departs from the big hotels such as Grand Margherita.

Thanks to Matti & KR for your replies.

KR, actually I am interested in trekking up Mount Santubong instead of visiting the cultural village. Are they located at the same place? I read about I have to get to a canteen at the foot of mount Santubong to start the hike up. Any idea if I can reach there by bus?

The canteen were you commence the walk is about 5 mins from the cultural village. It could be worth checking if the shuttle bus will make a request stop for you.
