Kuching VIC Relocating

KUCHING, Thursday: The Sarawak Tourism Board’s (STB) Kuching Visitor Information Centre (VIC) has been relocated to the Sarawak Tourism Complex, or the Old Court House.

“The relocation of the VIC is necessary in our efforts to better accommodate our visitors’ needs, by strategically stationing our tourist coordinators where they are easily accessible to provide tourism information and guidance,” said STB Acting Chief Executive Officer, Mary Wan Mering.

The new location is located between the entrances to India Street and Carpenter Street as well as the Kuching Waterfront, making it easily found by visitors seeking information.

The VIC is also scenically located in a significant heritage site, with the Complex’s main building, the Old Court House, dating back to 1871 when it was the seat of Sarawak government.

The building still retains its original belian (ironwood) roofs, colonial Clock Tower and Charles Brooke Memorial.

The VIC’s operating hours are 9.00am to 6.00pm daily, except on public holidays, and can be contacted via email at [email protected].
