The word "kuching" stands for cat in Malay, but I do not know Kuching City for cats. Instead, Kuching is a great city for foods, places of interest and nature. If you ask the locals about the people in Kuching, I bet they would say the people in Kuching loves to eat, eat, and eat! The famous "ABC" at Chan Swee Kang in Jalan Haji Mataim, the irresistable "Laksa Sarawak" at Mom's Laksa in Jalan Astana, the delicious "Mee Sapi" at Sepinang Sari Restaurant in Jalan Satok, the all-time-favourite "Rojak Ayam" at Rojak Kuchei's stall in Batu Lintang Hawker Center, the hot and spicy "Ayam Penyet" at RJ Ayam Penyet Kopitiam in Jalan Nagor, the sizling "Steamboat" at D11 at Jalan Ban Hock, the fresh seafoods at Buntal Seafood in Kampung Buntal or Topspot in Bukit Permata, and many more.
So many foods, I almost forgot to mention places of interest in Kuching such as Kuching Wetland National Park which offers great sights of Mangrove forest, Probocis Monkey, not to mention that it is also one of the place listed in the RAMSAR sites. Bako National Park is a great place to visit too if you miss the chance to get to Kuching Wetland National Park. Cultural Village is a very nice place for you to see and experience the culture of the 9 main native races in Sarawak including Malay, Iban, Bidayuh, Melanau, Penan, Kenyah, Kayan, Kelabit, and Orang Ulu. You can also enjoy the beautiful and smooth beaches in Santubong area or take a hike up on the Mount Santubong. Oh, and don't forget to visit the shophouses along Kuching Waterfront to buy some suveniors and the Fort Magherita on the opposite site of the river!
