    Best trip to kuching, Sarawak we had. Sarawak has loads of interesting places to visit and experience true local culture. An ideal number of days should be 5 days just to cover near by kuching area 100km radius...

    Beautiful sight. The lights, the scenery and the walk along the riverfront is particularly nice after dark. We went twice..one late afternoon and once at night. I vote for.after dark.

    I did a bike ride around Kuching & we came across quite a few of the murals.
    They were great fun & good to photograph.

    This building can be found on the opposite bank of the Sarawak River from the main Kuching town and right beside the Durul Hana Bridge, it is the State parliament building. It is not open for general tourists however even from the outside it is an impressive building. At night the musical fountain plays on the edge of the river at 8 and 9:30 in front of the building.

    It was a very good experience for me and my friends spending time hiking together during the break. Its a very healing hike for nature lover and its a little bit tough tho,theres a little bit of mosquitoes and red ants bites.make sure to wear a long sleeve shirt and pants.but it was a good exercise.we found "periuk kera",and a big durian fell out from the tree,be careful with your head and we even found a crab at the top of the mountain!😍btw,Make sure to bring a lots of water and some food to enjoy the view up there while eatingg.
    Goodd vieww.

    Easy to get to being to only a 30 minute walk from the Waterfront and situated in a nice suburban area Jalan Song, the park is tidy compact and well organized. Two parts to the park , one the introduction to the other states in Malaysia and the other Chinese Tea Pavilion, and zig zag bridge overlooking the large pond. The pond is full of huge Koi Carp and other colorful fish. Around the park is a walk way /jogging track.

    It was an extreme hot afternoon for us to climb up to the temple which is situated on the top of the hill. But worth to be there. Awesome view from the temple which is facing the sea, the far and near scenery of the fishing boats and fishing village. The temple is very spacious with many god statues placed accordingly to their status. Very colorful exterior, but still under some renovation works. For senior citizens with leg problem are not advisable to go because of the steep stairs to climb.

    From a distance the buildings looks impressive and inviting. They have a museum and did have a planetarium which is now closed. The buildings are very different but the whole place, from toilets to café are in need of a lot of attention. Shame, this could be so good.

    Once through the Harmony Arch at the beginning of Carpenter Street is this colourful Chinese Temple, a sacred place of worship built in 1863 by Teochew immigrants from China. In 1884 it suffered great damage due to fire and was rebuilt and carefully maintained to this day as a place of historical cultural heritage, worship and popular with tourists. We did not venture inside, visitors are welcome but need to remove their shoes at the main door.

    It is a white cat statue at Padungan roundabout, the statue is surrounded by bush and flowers beds. Nice place especially if you like to take photos. This place is very close and loacated at China Town area. Do the visit and take photos but also do the leisure walks along the main road, and stop for nice food or coffee break at one of the local cafe.
