    Well worth a visit - at both nightime and in the day.

    Feels very safe, no pressure re boat trips or restaurants.

    Free light show at 8:30 and 9:30 nightly.

    Lots of photo opportunities

    Shame about some of the rubbish in the river but they do try to clean it up.

    worth a visit.

    When you leave the city area of Kuching and venture into the countryside you are met with the imposing landmark of Mt Santubong. While we did not hike to the top we were impressed by the low cloud over the peak.

    As a crazy cat lady as soon as I read about this I knew I had to go. Located on the lobby floor of the Kuching North City Hall about 10kms from the waterfront/city centre, I spent around 2 hours there. It is comprised of 4 galleries with over 4000 items dedicated to all things feline. The first gallery has several taxidermy specimens, these looked scruffy and tired (and were vaguely disturbing) but nonetheless it was good to see the various species of the area. The rest of the exhibition contained sculptures, artworks and even fashion dedicated to our feline friends. There is a cafeteria in the lobby selling hot food, drinks and snacks.

    I was visiting Kuching, Sarawak, MALAYSIA (Borneo Island) early in December 2023. And there was this tallest flag pole in the country recently constructed and completed. Ready for official opening in the eve of the New Year 2024. Wonderful scene. Great activities along the waterfront (Sarawak River). Lots of local foods and western foods as well. Must visit!

    Place is beautiful and is housed in a massive building.
    Interesting artifacts and some good knowledgeable contents across 5 or 6 floors.
    Washrooms are spotless , impressively clean.

    A good place for a jog especially in the early morning and late evening. Best place to take a walk at night time with friends and family.

    We found this place by accident, we crossed the "bridge to nowhere " expecting to be able to see/visit some of the sites on the other side of the river we found everything locked up apart from this place if you like plants and flowers it is well worth a walk over the bridge.

    This is a nice stretch of street to walk about, buy some local stuff and great food. Parking can be a challenge and crowded during peak hours.

    This place is architecturally pleasing. There is a decent small museum and places to eat and drink. This is opposite the waterfront.

    A good short visit to a small temple, free entry and you only need 10-15 mins to see it all. Makes for some good photos. Situated in middle of roundabout.

    It's a very local market for fruit and vegetables, but there are some souvenir stalls selling items at very reasonable prices. Do ask the vendors to cut the fruit for you if you plan to eat the fruit at the market. There are some very good Malay food and drink stalls on the street next to the market. There is an excellent bakery/cake shop opposite the market. Do be patient while waiting for a Grab car, traffic can be very congested on a Sunday.

    The best view of the mosque is from the Kuching bridge over the river during the sunset. You can get the whole city background in the pic.
