Kuching is a tourist haven. It is small, safe, warm, and fairly clean. The months from March until October are the best times to visit. Kuching, also, has plenty of interesting sights to offer visitors. Its primary sights are museums such as the Sarawak Museum, Dewan Tun Abdul Razak, Sarawak Islamic Museum, and Fort Margherita. There are also the Cat Museum, Sarawak Timber Museum, and the Sarawak Textile Museum. Nonetheless, other interesting places to visit are the Tua Pek Kong Temple and the Sultan Iskandar Planetarium. Furthermore, the skyscrapers that are built on verdant forests are simply breathtaking.
The Kuching Civic Center is a beautiful three-building complex. The Waterfront is perhaps the most well-known meeting area in Kuching. Then, tourists may also come to the Taman Budaya to jog, walk, and enjoy the surroundings. Plus, they may visit the Astana, Friendship Garden, and the State Library, as well. And if they want to shop for items, they may go to the Main Bazaar. This place consists of shops that sell a variety of handicrafts and souvenirs. They may also go to the Boulevard Mall and to The Spring. Green Heights Mall and Sarawak Plaza are two other ideal places for shopping. However, cheaper items such as accessories and clothes may be found at Kenyalang Park and Hock Lee Center.
Then again, food trip will always be a favorite pastime. Sarawak laksa and kolo mee are among the most popular dishes. Mi sapi, manok pansoh, umai, manok kacangma, midin, bubur pedas, and mi jawa are also several other specialties. But the nasik aruk of Kuching is very good, as well. It is not really like the nasi goring because even if it is fried rice, it is not oily. It consists of garlic, anchovies, and onions. Then, visitors may go to the Dayang Café, Bla Bla Bla Restaurant, The Junk, and Restoran Barok to experience luxurious dining. They may also try the White Lady drink at Ah Meng’s stall. But they must also never forget to taste the Sarawak coffee which is very good and abundant in Kuching kopi-tiams.
