Really nice position on the river in an interesting building. Food is good value for money and very well presented. Desert menu is a bit simple, so fill up on the delicious starters and mains. Excellent and polite staff

The Square Tower can only be seen from the outside. It is placed on the end of the Kuching Waterfront so ideal on an evening stroll.

Part of the history of Sarawak and the Brooke Dynasty, once a ballroom but later a prison. Beautiful monument.

There is nothing much here to see already not as more then 20 years back where this place still have the rhythm fountain in operation which is very amazing to look at, now this place a bit messy and the fountain area are also quite dirty, the only beauty at the moment is the DUN right in front of this...

This slice of Sarawak's past is located right on the waterfront and I believe it was a former prison. Currently it has been reincarnated as a bar/restaurant but other than that you can only view it from the outside. Unfortunately it will be totally overshadowed by the new mosque and bridge development right next to it .

This square tower is located along the waterfront Kuching. I believe it is a restaurant now. It is one of the oldest building in Kuching.

Not much to this rather small white square of a building but it does look much better when lighted at night. Located close to where the new bridge is being constructed.
