DISCOVER KUCHING

Kuching is not only home to the Kuching Waterfront Jazz Festival, but it also has a few notable nature reserves such as the Gunung Gading National Park, the Bako National Park, the Kubah National Park, the Kuching Wetlands National Park, the Talang Satang National Park and the Santubong National Park.  All these parks are rich in flora and fauna and are a major attraction for those seeking to get close to nature.

Aside from national parks, food in Kuching has always been a focal point of mention for anyone with these highly recommended Sarawak Laksa stalls listed to give you the best Laksa Sarawak.  Aside from Sarawak Laksa, local food would also be a must try, with these seafood places highly recommended by locals as they are not only cheap, but consistent in their quality.

For those wanting to shop, check out shopping malls in Kuching, and last but not least, learn more about Sarawak (and Kuching) before you come by reading this quick guide I prepared.

See ya at the KWJF!
