    If located next to the Sarawak State Parliament building with a distinctive large roof "Astana", Japan Japanese Palace and Palace in the difference between "Istana" what? Sarawak's words in it? Building itself is now that the No. 2 White King Charles Brooke built, current Sarawak State head of State's residence. Simply because not easy to approach as Japan Prime Minister's residence, we also looked at as a part of the landscape from the opposite bank. However, we can go up close "Astana" is approaching in the final stages of the Sarawak River Bridge construction, cross the bridge. After completion it is fun.

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.
