I only went here to take some photographs. Not a whole lot to see or do but the architecture is quite lovely.

“Lovely old colonial building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

The ice-cold fresh lime drink was divine and the snack lunch hit the spot, sitting under the fan for a mid-day cool off. The guys in the Tourist Office were great - gave us a brilliant bus timetable which we used to get to Semenggoh and Bako as well as round Kuching, a cheaper and much better experience than sitting in a taxi.

“Very attractive Colonial building complex”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

This is the heart of Kuching town in the days of the 'White Rajah' Brooke dynasty. On the opposite bank of the river is the Astana which was the Brooke official residence.
Elegant architectural style with handsome columns and wide verandahs. Very evocative of the early days of Sarawak colonial administration - and it puts to shame all the ugly modern buildings in the town!
