KUCHING CITY TOUR
Kuching is the capital of the East Malaysian State of Sarawak. Kuching is the most populous city in the state of Sarawak and the fourth largest city in Malaysia Nestled on the banks of the Sarawak River, the capital, Kuching, retains the old-world charm of its romantic past. The river is the focal point of the town and features a graceful, European-style esplanade - The Kuching Waterfront - with views across to the Astana (The Palace) and Fort Margherita. The narrow, bustling streets near the river are crammed with ornate temples, markets, historic buildings and traditional Chinese shop houses selling local handicrafts.
Kuching also lays claim to nine museums, many within walking distance of each other. No other city in Malaysia displays its charm with such an easy grace as Kuching, the capital of Sarawak. The city is cut almost in half by the meandering Sarawak River - its lifeline since time immemorial and where it all began in 1839.
Its skyline is a mix of minarets and domes, ornate temple roofs, church spires, fortress, towers, modern and colonial buildings - all set amidst a profusion of greenery against the dramatic backdrop of the inky-blue Santubong and Matang Mountains.
A tour of Kuching will take you from the era of the White Rajahs to the present day. Visit the world renowned Sarawak Museum and the Brooke Legacy (White Rajahs) - Square Tower, Astana and the Court House. There is also the Cat Monument, Tua Pek Kong - Chinese Temple, the old State Mosque and one of the hottest leisure spots in the City, the Kuching Waterfront Esplanade.
