Kuching is a perfect city to enjoy on foot! Walk down the same streets and alleys that the three “white kings” used to walk during their 100-year reign. Let the sights, sounds and smells of old Asia fill your senses with awe. At the same time, you’ll discover how the Rajahs left their trademark, building beautiful colonial buildings like the Astana or the old Court House. Your highly knowledgeable guides will answer any quesitons you have about the history of the city. Also, visit the oldest Chinese temple in Sarawak, where you’ll walk to the Waterfront jetty and, like James Brooke used to do, take a sampan (river taxi) across the Sarawak river to visit a small Malay village. Explore the old streets and alleys of Carpenter, Gambier & India, and the oldest Indian mosque in Kuching.
Why choose this tour?
Kuching's city centre is well preserved, and virtually all the highlights can be reached on foot or by sampan.
