Kuching

3.4

Cat City

A state capital, Kuching offers access to the surrounding landscape on a range of ecotours through national parks and reserves. The area also provides a home for important conservation projects designed to protect Borneo's primate inhabitants and teach visitors about the vital work done to protect them. Kuching attractions include ethnographic, natural history, and art museums. Many tourists delve into the city's cultural heritage on guided walks through the old town, which provide a good look at the hybrid architecture of Chinese shop houses and colonial-era buildings. Kuching is in Sarawak. Use our Malaysia travel planner to arrange your visit to Kuching and any other destinations in Malaysia that take your fancy.

Where to stay in Kuching

The most popular area to stay in Kuching remains just south of the Sarawak River, where you can find affordable hotels offering basic but comfortable rooms. South of Jalan Main Bazaar, budget backpacker accommodations in the form of hostels and guesthouses draw many visitors with limited means. Consider the districts north of the river for more exclusive and resort-style alternatives.
