Explore Kuching’s Myriad Of Artistic And Historical Architecture
Shutterbugs, this one is for you.
Modern-day Kuching city boasts a varied lineup of interesting architecture with a myriad of influences — none more so than Sarawak’s White Rajah. Kuching’s Astana, for example, continues to exude the Brook Dynasty’s legacy to this day, being the former residence of the ruling Rajahs.
Other colonial architectures from the Brook era also include Fort Margherita, the Old Court House, the Round Tower, and the General Post Office — all of which make for excellent backdrops for a photo shoot.
In contrast, Carpenter Street is also a particular highlight as the traditional Chinese shophouses which dots these busy roads and intersections offers a different facade as compared to the colonial-style buildings of the Kuching Waterfront region.
Bed and breakfast joints, cafés, temples, old family-style grocers, bars and pubs are some of the interesting spots you may visit when you’re in the area. Indeed, the best way to experience the history of Kuching is through the city’s hodgepodge of architectural styles.
