A perfect introduction to Sarawak's historical capital, Kuching. This informative three-hour tour covers many of Kuching's sights including the Cat Statue, Tua Pek Kong Chinese Temple and the world famous Sarawak Museum. Take a walk through Old Kuching along the narrow alleyways visiting the Central Markets and heritage building of the White Rajah era.
What You Can Expect
You'll be picked up from your selected Kuching hotel, and taken across the river to visit the unique Cat Museum, passing the magnificent State Mosque and the Astana, the former residence of the White Rajahs.
Tour returns via the golden-domed City Mosque where you'll proceed on foot through Old Kuching, visiting the colorful Central Markets and squeezing through narrow alleyways crammed with spice dealers and textile shops. Pass by the heritage buildings of the White Rajah era, the Pavilion, the Square Tower, the Court House, the Charles Brooke Monument and the Post Office.
A great way to orientate yourself in Kuching - it takes you to quite a few points of interest. The guide, whose name was Richard (I think), was very informative. We have done this tour before and found it to be a good introduction to the wonderful city of Kuching. We didn't do it this time but the add on river cruise is also good
