Kuching, the capital of Sarawak, is simply unique.
No other city in Malaysia has such a romantic and unlikely history, nor displays its charms with such easy grace. The residents of Kuching (pop. 680,000 approx.) enjoy living here and take great pride in their fascinating city, which is reflected in their attitude to visitors. Kuching welcomes visitors warmly, but it does not put on an act for them. Instead, it goes about its own business in a relaxed manner that hasn’t changed in 160 years. To make the most of your visit you must put on your walking shoes, take to the streets (and the water), and join in.
