Kuching, the state capital of Sarawak, is arguably one of the most attractive cities in Southeast Asia. With its romantic history of White Rajahs, its rich architectural heritage, and the warm hospitality of its residents, it is quite easy to end up spending longer than intended in Kuching. The city has adopted modern amenities but has not lost its charm. The river, once an important transport link, is still a central feature of the city with the beautifully landscaped waterfront promenade providing a relaxing venue for strolling both day and night. The city centre is compact, with most of the main attractions located a short distance away from the Kuching Waterfront. The Sarawak Museum, Brooke era heritage buildings such as the Square Tower and the 19th Century shophouses at Main Bazaar are all within walking distance of the city centre hotels. There are number of excellent national parks and wildlife reserves located close to Kuching. These include Bako, home of the rare Proboscis monkey; Gunung Gading, where Rafflesia flowers bloom; Semenggoh Wildlife Centre with its semi-wild orang utans; and Kuching Wetlands National Park with its mangrove attractions and diverse range of wildlife.
