Kuching

Charming riverside base for beach and jungle adventures

Kuching is a city whose identity is strongly rooted in its past, which is sure to particularly pique the interest of avid historians. The land was given by the Sultan of Brunei to a British adventurer, James Brooke, in thanks for helping him crush a rebellion. Brooke set up his own regional government, and many of the finest buildings in the city - including the Astana Palace - were built by Brooke and his son.

The city is nestled on the bank of the Sarawak River, a source of water and major transport artery, as well as the location of local sailing regattas. River cruises or bike tours provide stunning views of Fort Margherita and the spectacular architecture of this cultural capital.
 
From Kuching, you will have ample opportunities to escape the city to the region’s many nearby natural phenomena – hike into the belly of the earth in the ethereal Fairy Caves or visit coastal Bako National Park to see towering rock structures. For an up close wildlife encounter, we highly recommend Seminggoh, an orangutan sanctuary and conservation area where you will have the opportunity to join volunteers working with these marvelous primates.
