Culturally diverse Kuching

Flying into the vibrant oasis of Kuching, you’ll take in a snapshot of Borneo - a modern city nestled on the banks of the Sarawak River and surrounded by wild jungle. But once you’re wandering the clean streets or floating on the river at night, Kuching’s broader nature seeps in – delicious wafts from open-air hawker markets will tempt you to savour bowls of noodle broth and spicy rice, the clash of British colonial architecture, Chinatown and cranking contemporary nightspots hints at an unusual and fascinating history (one best explored at the fine Sarawak Museum) and a slow evening river cruise will perhaps conjure thoughts of romance. You’ll discover Kuching is a lively city of diverse people and culture, one that both supports and belies Borneo’s untamed jungle vibe.
