It wasn’t because I’ve claimed myself a cat lady when I decided to stay in Kuching for the longest period compared to the other cities I’ve visited during my Borneo trip.
Well, maybe it’s one of the reasons. However, I already planned to go to stay overnight at Bako National Park on my last day in the city. I didn’t really want to have a tight schedule during my trip this time, so I decided to book the accommodation in Kuching for 4 nights.
At first, I really wanted to have a nice and rather ‘fancy’ accommodations for the whole stay. You know, with elevator and everything. However, when I calculated the whole budget for 4 nights, the ‘fancy’ one would exceed my budget.
My other consideration is that I had to leave my big bag there for one night after I checked out, as I had to go to Bako. Before I made a booking, I dropped an email to some accommodation to confirm whether there’s any additional charge for luggage storage service.
Long story short, I ended up booking a room at Woodpecker Lodge in Kuching.
