The territory of the Asian island of Borneo is divided amongst three countries. Located in the north of the island, Kuching is officially part of Malaysia and is undoubtedly Borneo’s most sophisticated city. A vibrant mix of cultures and cuisines, the city is ideal for wandering around on foot, with a fascinating blend of Colonial-style buildings, Chinese temples and stylish hotels just waiting to be explored.

Kuching is famous for its superb selection of museums. The Sarawak Museum has been in existence since 1891 and is home to a wonderful collection of cultural artifacts which help to tell the story of the island of Borneo and its people. Located on the city’s waterfront, the Chinese History Museum is another attraction which draws a large number of visitors, providing an insight into the differing cultures of the nine Chinese communities. Cat lovers will adore both the Cat Museum and the various cat statues which are spread throughout the city. As the word ‘kuching’ means ‘cat’ in Malay, felines are very popular here.

Away from downtown, there is a wealth of natural beauty and exotic wildlife to be encountered. Semenggok Wildlife Rehabilitation Center carries out essential work in rehabilitating injured and orphaned orangutans. Visitors to the center have the rare opportunity of watching these magnificent creatures at play in their natural habitat and, if they so wish, can donate to their future welfare.
