KUCHING

A city of modernity yet cloaked with romantic colonial charm. That is the appeal of Kuching, the capital of Sarawak where cleanliness is a way of life. And thro ugh this garden City meanders the Sarawak River that gives life to its community. You can watch scenic sunsets over the Matang Mountains while enjoying the soothing lull of waves at its waterfront esplanade or take a boat-ride across the river to view the grand Astana (residence of the head of state), the Orchid gardens Fort Margherita and Malay villages.

 

For a glimpse into its rich historical past., venture into the Sarawak Museum, the Cats Museum, the Islamic Museum, the Chinese Museum, the Timber Museum, and the Civic Centre with a planetarium.

 

Just 40 minutes from downtown Kuching is the Saiawak Cultural Village at Darnai where you can see the essence of Sarawak in a day, as you stroll leisurely through seven homes and seven cultures. You can also go sightseeing around town via the city tram. This unique looking bus will pickyou up at various stops and designated hotels. Its a free and easy ride.

SIBU

Gateway To Central Region

 

Step into Sibu and you are stepping into what was once wild frontier that was given to Sir James Brooke as reward for taming the rebellion for the Brunei Sultanate, who ruled the land then. He became the first 'White Rajah? and began his administrative seat from Fort Brooke in Sibu, in 1862. As interesting as its history is its named Sibu which comes from the local fruit 'Sibau' - a small, sour and wild version of the sweet fleshy rambutan.

 

While the Melanau's were the first inhabitants of the area, it is now steeped in Chinese influence, as the Chinese settlers began to make their honk here encouraged by the first White Rajah.

 

Although the city was razed to the ground twice - once in 1889 and again in 1928, the spirit of the people survived. They rebuilt the town, this time with bricks and mortar and lots of determination, to become a thriving town.

 

Enviably located in the heart of Sarawak, Sibu is a holiday destination for culture, adventure and nature. You can shop, dine, go bargain hunting or for a little more excitement, take a ride in fast passenger ferries to remote areas where the locals live right next to the jungle inhabited by exotic animals or simply be enchanted by the lure of Sibu.

 

As you journey upriver from Sibu, Chinese shop houses soon give way to than 1onghoues. This exciting journey will take you on to the Pelagus Rapids where than culture quietly merge into that of the Orang Ulu with isolated settlements of Punan Bah, Kajang, Kayan, Kenyah, Bukitan, Lahanan, Ukit and Penan people.
