Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Tabo River

A boat up the Tabo River is the only way to get to Bako National Park

The only way to get to Bako National Park is by boat up the Tabo River. This is after a roughly one hour bus trip from Kuching, the capital of Malaysian Sarawak. After a 15 minute journey up this beautiful river, you get dropped off at a beach and then have to report to the Visitor’s Center. Be on the look out for eagles and crocodiles as you make your way towards this amazing national park.


The goal of Traveling Ted is to inspire people to outdoor adventure travel and then provide tips on where and how to go.
