About

Kuching is an administrative division in Malaysia, neighbour to Brunei Darussalam and Indonesia sharing the island of Borneo. The division consists of the capital, City of Kuching, and suburban areas Siburan, Teng Bukap, Bau, Lundu, and Sematan.

When it was still under the rule of Bruneian Empire, Kuching was the third capital of Sarawak. It was a part of British Crown Colony in 1946, and upon the formation of Malaysia, it became the state capital. The City of Kuching earned its city status in 1988.

As a melting pot to several cultures, Kuching is a home to many culinary delicacies. Its safe and clean reputation boasted off by its people. Becoming the gateway to tourists exploring Sarawak state, the popularly nicknamed ‘city of cat’ provides many cultural attractions and nature sites alike. Kuching is further divided into several areas, such as Padawan, Batu Kawa, Tabuan Jaya, Kota Sentosa, Padungan, Petra Jaya, Santubong, and other small areas.

How to Get There

By Plane

Kuching International Airport (KCH) is the main gate to get to Sarawak. There are frequent flights to Singapore as well as to other destinations in Malaysia, such as Johor Bahru, Kota Kinabalu, Labuan, and local Sarawak cities, such as Miri, Sibu, and Bintulu. Numbers of international flights are operated to Hong Kong, GuangZhou and Pontianak.

By Bus

Buses going to and from other areas in Kuching are now originated from Kuching Sentral Terminal, which is approximately one kilometer from the airport.

Tourist Attractions

Generally surrounded by natural beauties, Kuching is also famous for its sunset scenery that can be enjoyed from Kuching Waterfront, an esplanade with open air theatre and food stalls as well as heritage buildings along the Sarawak river. Though so, there are many other interesting activities in Kuching as follow:

Sarawak Museum/Ethnology Museum

Sarawak State Museum was established in 1888, making it the oldest museum in Borneo. It is now called Ethnology Museum and, as the name states, is home to various archaeological artefacts and ethnic crafts of Borneo culture on the upper floor and natural history museum downstairs. Do not be shock when you find an eerie installation on the lower floor, such as man found inside crocodile’s stomach along with hairball and watch.

The museum is open daily from 09:00 AM to 04:45 PM and 10:00 AM to 04:00 PM on Saturday, Sunday, and holidays.

Kuching Civic Centre

Kuching Civic Centre is compounds featuring the most remarkable umbrella-shaped roof tower for visitors to have a 360° view of the Kuching cityscape, available to be accessed during daytime only via two bubble lifts provided.

Aside of the fantastic view, Kuching Civic Centre also has souvenir shop and restaurant. On the ground, there is Sultan Iskandar Planetarium and hawker stalls.

Gunung Gading National Park

Gunung Gading National Park is a natural habitat to the Rafflessia, the largest flower in the world. It is located amidst the Lundu River. To ensure you witness this seasonal flower blooming, do not hesitate to ask the right timing to come to the Forestry Office, and at the same time, to confirm your visiting schedule.

Aside of Rafflesia- viewing, you can go for jungle-trekking. There are choices of the treks: Gunung Gading Summit (steep trek to inactive volcano takes around 3 hours); Waterfalls (ranging from 20 minutes to Waterfall 1 to 45 minutes to the more secluded Waterfall 7); Viewpoints (offering Lundu’s aerial view, a 90-minute steep trekking), and NightWalk Trail (close to camp and is safe to hike at night).

The national park also offers accommodation, with two double-bunk beds hostel rooms (about 15.00 MYR per person or 40.00 MYR per room) and three-room cabins for a very affordable price (about 140.00 MYR). It is also possible to camp in the national park for 5.00 MYR per person. Forestry Office in Kuching usually handles the booking process, so you have to arrange everything before going to the site. Note that there is no restaurant within the national park.
