  • 2. Kuching Past & Present

    A friend traveled to Kuching recently and it was his first time in more than 40 years and he was amazed of what changes had occurred since he was last in Kuching (where he used to live. As he recalled in his mind, Kuching was still a small town with its main town Kuching Bau, Lundu and Serian. Across the Sarawak River around Astana and Fort Margherita are a few clusters of Malay villages. He used to consider them the poorer relatives as compared to the town side of the river. Even some of the richer and more educated Malay population lived on the town side of the Sarawak River. Now, that poorer side of the river is booming and that is where most of the Malays lived. Houses are huge and most of the Ministers eg the Chief Minister of Sarawak live in that part of town.

  • 3. Kuching Damai Puri Beach Resort

    I could consider this to be the latest and one of the best holiday Beach Resort in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia. Catering for both families and for romantic couples the holiday resort has activities to suit almost everyone such as water sports activities, including sea and river activities. Children and adults would love the kayaking, although they do close shop quite early. I saw a couple who wanted to rent the kayak around 4pm and were told that the shop is closed. The workers there are more relaxed than the tourist !! I suppose they acould be on a working holidays ....
