Cultural Heritage - Fun and Leisure
Kuching is a truly lovely city – rich in history, it's the most sophisticated on Sarawak and is a unique and enjoyable tourism destination, and an ideal base from which you can explore.
As the official Sarawak Tourism Department says: Kuching's city centre is well preserved and very compact; virtually everything that is worth seeing can be reached on foot or by sampan.
The nearby national parks include Bako, home of the rare proboscis monkey, Gunung Gading, where giant rafflesia flowers bloom, Kuching Wetlands, which protects a fascinating mangrove ecosystem, Kubah, with its rare palms and orchids, and Semenggoh and Matang Wildlife Centres with their resident orangutans. Literally hundreds of Iban and Bidayuh longhouses are within easy travelling distance.
Take time to explore the shops and cuisine of Carpenter Street, or just take an evening stroll along the river bank.
