Day 2: Kuching City Tour
After breakfast, start your exploration in Kuching. Touring around this sophisticated Malaysian city, you will get along fine with it. Attractions include lively Chinatown, the well-preserved Tua Pek Kong Chinese Temple decorated with dragons, various cat-shaped statues that can be found everywhere, the Civic Centre Viewing Platform and the world-renowned Sarawak Museum.
After that, return via the gold-domed State Mosque and pass through the bustling streets lined with old shops filled with handicrafts and spice shops with spicy aromas. You also have the chance to view the heritage buildings of the White Rajah era, the Pavilion, the Square Tower, the Court House, the Charles Brooke Monument, and the Post Office along the way back. Then appreciate the Astana across the river at the Kuching Waterfront, which has a love story behind the old building.
Afterward, continue to take a boat to cruise on the Sarawak River. Rivers crisscross the jungle across the residential area. This is a great way to enjoy the natural beauty while you're close to the local life.
