Kuching is a haven for animals

Hi, I'm Jane from the Philippines. An animal lover. So, when I volunteered at an animal charity in Kuching, I made time to visit some of its tourist hotspots. Lucky me, Kuching has a lot of animal reserves. I visited the Semenggoh Nature Reserve. I love how the monkeys there are well taken cared of. They're very healthy and happy. I also did nature walks at the Bako National Park and Kubah National Park. I especially enjoyed the flora and fauna in Mt. Santubong. Kuching is a real haven for animals, I hope they keep it that way. I really recommend everyone to see and visit Kuching. It is very much worth paid a visit for.
