Kuching North plans Kuching City night market

The Kuching North City Commission (DBKU) is considering setting up a Kuching City night market in the near future.

The market is proposed in the Kuching City centre as there are none of such markets in the vicinity at the moment.

A report by Borneo Post quoted DBKU Mayor Datuk Bandar Datu Junaidi Reduan, as saying that there is a proposal to set up a night market at the Jalan P Ramlee.

However, for the proposal to be accepted, it will be scrutinized first as the local authority wants to see how they can manage such market to avoid any complaints in the future shall it be implemented.

The move to have a night market in the centre of Kuching has also gained positive response from Minister of Tourism, Creative Industry and Performing Arts Dato Sri Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah who also suggested India Street to be developed into a night market instead.

The minister promised that setting up a night market in Kuching City centre will be considered in the near future as well.

Aside from annual festivals like the Kuching Festival and Intercultural Mooncake Festival, there isn’t any night market in the Kuching City Centre.

Nonetheless, the fringes of the city like MetroCity and sub-urban Siniawan does have it’s own night market which operates on selected days a week.

Prior to this, there was a night market in the vicinity of the Kuching Civic Centre, but due to complaints, it was shut down by the authorities.
