Most Padungan accommodation offer basic sleep-in facilities, without swimming pools and with parking areas shared with the public.
However, since Padungan is also very close to the Kuching City Centre, bigger hotels like Grand Margherita Hotel do offer swimming facilities and are highly rated. Do note that Padungan is a large area, and it is largely marked by the Padungan Road which stretches from the Kuching City Centre to Sekama Road.
Padungan is known as one of Kuching’s lively night spots. Bars and lounges dot the area, although its concentration isn’t as heavy as what you find in places like Phuket. That makes Padungan perfect for a night’s rest despite the availability of nightlife.
During the day, sundry shops selling flowers, hardware shops, and cake making shops open alongside mostly non-halal food shop to create one of Kuching’s best culinary adventures for guest.
There’s plenty to observe and enjoy in Padungan, and the hotels available within this area are listed below.
