Sarawak is Malaysia’s biggest state by size and is located on the island of Borneo, which is well-known for its great diversity of culture, wildlife and nature.

Sarawak occupies much of the northwest coast of Borneo, and is almost the same size as England. However, it is the most sparsely populated due to the tropical rainforests, rugged mountains, mighty rivers, mangrove forests, white sandy beaches and pristine island. It neighbours Brunei to the North, Sabah in the northeast and Indonesia (Kalimantan) in the south. Kuching is the economic capital. There are many theories as to how Kuching got its name, but a favourite adopted by the city is Kuching is the Malay word for Cat. Therefore, cat monuments and a cat museum are famous icons of the city.

With many available options for photography, TopLiners Club has specially designed this short and intense trip for the photography enthusiasts.  Expect interesting genres featuring street, wildlife, scenics, night, astro (weather-permitting), action and even night macro.

Join TopLiners Club’s Photo Master Julian W., on this epic journey into the realms of Borneo Sarawak.

Julian W. first started weaving images with light in 1992.  He honed his photography skills by immersing himself in fashion, portrait and commercial photography, but soon found these pursuits a little too monotonous for his liking.

To challenge himself, he listened to his inner callings and venture into nature photography soon after.  His works soon caught the attention of Animal Planet, Sony, HSBC, Singtel, Vitagen, and many various wildlife institutions

Today, this workaholic runs 4 companies, which includes a brand agency and a full-fledged travel agency that is registered with the Singapore Tourism Board.  Julian is also the brainchild for Singapore Photography Meets, a photography community that has more than 6000 members.

Minimum 8 to travel.  Maximum 12 participants.

Do sign up early as accommodation space in the National Park is extremely limited.  Please email contact@toplinersclub.com if you have any queries in regards to this trip.
