Backyard Tour

Backyard Tour is a social enterprise that aims to empower rural communities in Sarawak; Kuching for now, through sustainable tourism. We see that there are lots of tourism potential in the villages around Kuching that are hidden from travel maps and the people there are living on the brink of poverty with issues such as youth unemployment, idleness, alcoholism, increased rural to urban migration. Thus, we want to combine the act of solving these social problems as well as bringing more hidden beauties around Sarawak to the public eye through the tours conducted. The tours will include short excursions, overnight stays, education camps. leadership camps, various events that will enable travelers to learn about the native culture, building structure, biodiversity and unique skills from the community members. We hope to be able to bring a wave of change in the tourism industry that focuses too much on corporate profit and bring more equity to the local communities through our unique business model that gives ownership to the community members, such as having local guides and logistics provided by the locals. Also we want to add value to the travelers' stay here in Kuching.
