8 Underrated Sarawak Destinations

8 Underrated Sarawak Destinations

Written by: Sarah Bennett

Sarawak happens to be the biggest state located in Malaysia. And it is also one of those 2 states, which are positioned on the Borneo Island that is well known for the exotic orangutan territory rainforests. The populace of Sarawak includes Chinese, Malays, Eurasians, Indians and different local tribes like Dayak, Iban, Melanau, Bidayuh, Kedayan, Orang Ulu and Penan.  Every clan has its typical unique language, culture, traditions, and food, which are not seen in any other areas of Malaysia.

What makes Sarawak really attractive is the availability of some national parks that showcase almost everything starting from the vast cave systems to the coastal swamp forests. Besides, Sarawak also preserves the most diverse as well as the richest ecosystems of this world. For the travelers, here are numerous scopes for extended or short treks both outside and inside the protected areas. Besides, travelers here can also visit the remote longhouse communities.

Here are the details of 8 underrated Sarawak destinations that one can visit: 

Kuching Waterfront 

This is the place where James Brooke, the 1st white skin Rajah set foot in Sarawak for the first time. Therefore, the Sarawak Government later spent a good amount of money to reconstruct the waterfront as well as to reclaim the parts of Riverside, which happened to be the crossing area for all the villagers to cross the river using small boats. At present, this waterfront is a wonderfully landscaped esplanade beside Sarawak River along with a few entertainment areas and eateries. Besides, there are a few sculptures, historical buildings and a watch tower present in that area. 

 

 

Old Museum of Sarawak

sarawak museum

It is the historic of museums located in Borneo, which was mainly sponsored by Charles Brooke, the 2nd Rajah and it got inaugurated in the year 1891 in order to display local arts crafts. Therefore, this place was renovated with a few additions to the present structure. At present, this museum houses a complete collection of historical information and tribal artifacts of Borneo. But, this museum is now temporarily closed until 2020 for refurbishments. 

Cat Museum

sarawak borneo kuching cat museumsarawak borneo kuching cat museum

Kuching- the capital of Sarawak is known popularly as the cat city and it is quite rightly said. This city houses one cat museum on Bukit Siol at the Petra Jaya opposite the Sarawak River. For every cat lover, this place works as a wonderful assortment of cat keepsakes starting from Garfield and Hello Kitty to the cat of Matthew Flinder and other popular felines. Here the visitors can enjoy exploring the photos and exhibits of all cats. Apart from that, they can also choose some souvenirs from the gift shops. 

Taman Budaya

It is a public garden located in Sarawak. This place used to be a reservoir previously for storing water. Due to this reason, this place is known as the Kuching Reservoir to local people. It is located near the Old Sarawak Museum and it is mostly used by people for walking and jogging. The hilly landscape of Taman Budaya makes this garden more attractive. 

Sarawak Islamic Museum

islamic heritage museum

This museum is located at the back of the Dewan Tun Razak. Previously, this place was a school namely James Brooke Malay College. Later this place was used as the Teachers Training College for studying Malay. Seven galleries are there in the museum. Each of these features items and artifacts regarding Islamic Civilization including coins, weapons, costumes, and jewelry. 

Kuching City Mosque

At this place, a wooden mosque was constructed in the year 1852. Later that mosque was destroyed and in the year 1968, the Kuching Mosque was constructed in that location. The best thing about this mosque is that it has a great blend of Italian and Midwestern architecture. Therefore, this place is considered to be one of the most important landmarks of Kuching. 

Tua Pek Kong Temple

 Seeing Kuching City on Foot

Constructed in the year 1843, this building is counted on as the oldest of Chinese temples in Sarawak. The temple is also considered as an important milestone situated in the central part of Kuching city close to the Sarawak River. During celebrations and other important religious celebrations, Chinese worshippers gather in this temple in order to pray for their wellbeing. 

Fort Margherita

fort margheritafort margherita

This fort was constructed in Sarawak in the year 1879 throughout the period of British Colonization for protecting the Sarawak city from outside attacks. The fort was called after Ranee Margaret – the wife of Charles Brooke. It is mainly located on the bank of the Sarawak River can easily be sighted from the Kuching Waterfront. The actual structure of this fort with the cannons, guns, cannon balls, prisoner’s cells and other important structures are still there. Now, the old Fort has changed into the police museum with the display of opium dens, weapons and various types of criminal punishments.

Seeing Kuching City on Foot

Seeing Kuching City on Foot

For the visitor to Kuching, the best way to explore this unique city is by foot.  This means, you simply need a pair of good walking shoes and you can walk around the old part of Kuching to see some of its tourist sites.

Kuching City is usually the main gateway into Sarawak as the main airport is located about 20 minutes from the city. Often called Cat City, because Kuching translates from Malay to cat, you will easily spot multiple cat structures which are also great for photo stops.

I would also like to share with you that Kuching city is a morning city, which means this place is best explored in the mornings when it is not too hot and humid. Most of the businesses close by 5.00PM and by 7.00PM, everything comes to a standstill here.

Seeing Kuching City on Foot

Tua Pek Kong Temple along Jalan Main Bazaar

Where to start in Kuching?

The best place to start your walking tours are from the Main Bazaar area where the Kuching Waterfront is located. I started in the morning about 9.00 AM and found that this is a great place to walk around, where I visited the Chinese History Museum and the prominent Chinese Temple called Tua Pek Kong.

Seeing Kuching City on Foot

Kuching’s vibrant Main Bazaar

From these two landmarks, just walk along the Main Bazaar where you will pass through a series of shops that sell ethnic Sarawakian antiques, collectibles and souvenir. This is probably the best place to get your souvenirs for Sarawak.

Along the Main Bazaar, you can spot some decades old businesses that are still trading goods like pepper, rice and so on. Once you reach the end, look across the road and you will see the Kuching Waterfront Bazaar, where you can find more authentic souvenirs.

Crossing the New Darul Hana Bridge

From there, you can either take the newly opened 335m-long S-shaped bridge called Darul Hana Bridge that goes over the Sarawak River that links Pangkalan Batu and Pangkalan Sapi.

Visitors can now walk over to the Old State Legislative Assembly building passing through Botanic Gardens and Orchid Garden and also to the iconic Fort Margherita.

After this, head back across the Darul Hana Bridge and walk towards the Brooke Monument for a photo moment. This is also where the old Court House is located at. Walk into Jalan Barrack and you will find the entrance to India Street.

Seeing Kuching City on Foot

India Street and the covered walkway

Called the India Street Pedestrian Mall, this old area has been given a beautiful makeover and is now a covered walkway. Traders are seen on both sides of the street selling all sorts of wares as I walk through and exit at Japan Power.

From the exit, keep walking along Jalan Market to see the old Kuching trading and business communities. While walking around here, do look out for some of the well known local eateries or coffee shops.

Seeing Kuching City on Foot

Carpenter Street in Kuching

After I explored this part of the city, I headed back to Carpenter Street which is just behind the Main Bazaar. I selected this because by the time I was done, it was lunch time and at Carpenter Street, there is a great place to try which is the Temple Food Court. It is located just opposite the Hiang Thian Siang Ti Temple.

Seeing Kuching City on Foot

Hiang Thian Siang Ti Temple at the end of Carpenter Street in Kuching

After lunch, I continued along Carpenter Street towards the end where I ended my walking tour of Kuching. This I where you will find the Hong San Si Temple, which is one of the most beautiful temples in Kuching.

In general, you can see this interesting part of Kuching in just under four hours on foot and very suitable for anyone who has half a day free in Kuching.
