The preferred introduction to Kuching. This tour starts with a river cruise along the Sarawak River followed by the Kuching City Tour.
A traditional albeit modern way to see and appreciate historic Kuching would be a boat cruise along the Sarawak River. It provides a time-honored view of the city and its surroundings that is impossible to experience on land. The boat glides past colourful Malay Villages with houses on stilts, the elegant City Mosque, the imposing Fort Margherita and the Kuching Waterfront.
Whilst cruising, wave a hello or two to those in the brightly painted water taxis (known as tambangs), see villagers going about their everyday activities, with fishing boats and wooden cargo vessels plying the river.
Enjoy a full view of the Astana, the former residence of the White Rajahs which is now the Governor’s official residence. The practicality of our purpose-built pontoon boats offers unobstructed views of every aspect of everyday life on the river.
