KUCHING : Recreation & Sports

 
 

SPORTS & RECREATION

 

All the 4 & 5-star hotels have fitness centres with tennis courts. Crowne Plaza Riverside also has a squash court. There is a public swimming pool on Jln Padungan just past the Kuching City South Council office complex. Reservoir Park is a popular local jogging spot. Riverside Superbowl is a 24-lane bowling centre situated in the Riverside Complex. Damai Beach is the best area for watersports (jet-skiing, windsurfing, water-skiing) - see Damai and Santubong section for details. Hotels and travel agents can arrange fishing trips just offshore from Santubong. If you are into deep sea game fishing, the place to go is Tanjung Datu at the western tip of Sarawak close to the Indonesian border. A number of fishing tackle shops can arrange these trips. Try Mr. Jong Joon Soon ( Johnson) at Fui Lip Marketing, 15 Ground Floor, Wisma Phoenix, Jln Song Thian Cheok.

 
 

GOLFING

 

Golfers have a choice of courses. The 36-hole Kelab Golf Sarawak at Petra Jaya is strictly members only. The quaintly named Prison Golf Club on Jln Penrissen has 9 holes. The Hornbill Golf & Jungle Club is located at Borneo Highlands Resort, 70 km from Kuching. This challenging par-72 course sprawls over rugged mountain terrain, offering the toughest of sporting challenges amidst magnificent rainforest scenery. Definitely not for hackers, this course suits golfers who can play straight, as it?s just a single step from fairway to forest.

 
 
 

KAYAKING

 

Kayaking enthusiast Francis Ho offers a range of coastal and rainforest Kayaking Tours in the wider Kuching area, with prices around RM168 per person. Some of the most popular trips are on the upper reaches of the Sarawak River near Bau. Kayak down jungle streams and pass through some stunning upcountry scenery, whilst catching a glimpse of the life of the local Bidayuh communities along the way.

 
 
 

MOUNTAIN BIKING

 

Sarawak is essentially pioneer territory when it comes to Mountain Biking. However, a few local riders have discovered some great trails just outside Kuching and further afield.

 
 
 

ROCK CLIMBING

 

The "Batman Wall", a climbing wall located at the Fairy Caves near Bau, offers a series of challenging rock climbs and abseiling routes. The wall is named after a huge roof section that rock climbers can opt to traverse before they continue up the main climbing wall. The main wall is 60 meters wide and reaches a height of 40 metres. The Batman Wall offers 20 climbing routes and both easy and difficult climbs.

 
 
 

SCUBA DIVING

 

Although Kuching is not yet developed as a diving destination (unlike Miri in Northeast Sarawak, gateway to the Luconia Shoals), there are a number of dive sites within easy access of Kuching.
