Kuching Attractions

Kuching Waterfront

Kuching Waterfront, which lines the south bank of Sarawak River, is THE place to sample the city’s cosmopolitan vibes. During the daytime, it offers scenic views of the Astana, Fort Margherita and the Malay kampungs across the river; but night-time is when it really comes alive! It seems like half of the city is out meeting friends, watching a show, or just shooting the breeze. For something different, why not try jetty-hopping along the river on the local Penambang boats, and savour the different sights, sounds (and delicacies!) between the two riverbanks.

Malay Kampung / Kampung Boyan

There are many authentic Malay Kampungs (traditional Malay villages) along the north bank of Sarawak River, next to Fort Margherita. One of the more famous ones is Kampung Boyan. For a special experience, arrive from the opposite bank on a local Penambang (river taxi). Then, explore the villages and savour the variety of traditional Malay snacks, dishes and seafood as you enjoy the sunset against the skyline of Kuching on the other side. While you’re there, do check out the famous Kuih Lapis (layered cake).
