The capital city of Sarawak is Kuching, a bustling city set on the river mouth. Other cities and towns in Sarawak include Miri, Sibu, and Bintulu. Sarawak has an equatorial climate with tropical rainforests and abundant animal and plant species. Known for rich with natural resources, its economy is driven by the export of oil and gas, timber, oil palms, manufacturing, energy, and tourism sectors.
Enormous chambers, fabulous calcite, incredible cave wildlife and remarkable cave paintings are amongst the wonderful things you will experience.
Kuching is covered in references to cats, but perhaps the most famous is the Cat Statue that sits at the entrance of the city.
Semenggoh Nature Reserve is around 40 minutes outside of Kuching so it is easy enough to visit as part of a day trip.
The reason that visitors flock here is to see the orang utans and the center had a rehabilitation program that lasted for some 30 years.
IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Kuching is the capital city of Sarawak, which is part of East Malaysia and is located in the broader island of Borneo. Sarawak has a very different feel. Kuching, in particular, thanks to its strategic location on the snake-like Sarawak River, is one of the prettiest spots in the region.
There is an excellent range of accommodation, from luxury via boutique to budget, good restaurants, and nightlife to suit most tastes and pockets. You can try local delicacies such as deer meat and jungle fern, drink a glass or two of tuak (local rice wine), or feast on a vast array of seafood dishes Kuching.
You may also be surprised to find that Kuching is covered in statues of cats. This is said to come from miscommunication during the colonial period when the local people were asked the name of the city and thought that James Brooke, the first British Rajah of Sarawak, was pointing to a cat. As such, they replied ‘kucing’, the Malay word for cat, and the rest is history.
