Kuching is a very disperse town, but the central area, is very compact. It is best viewed from the Sarawak river. You can take a "sunset cruise" in a larger boat or do as the locals and hire one of these lovely small boats for one hour or so.
Yo can catch one of those shuttle bus from kuching to Damai or Cultural village for RM10 one way (Apr 09). See pic for the schedule.
You can cover Kuching town on foot. Break your journey and stop by a cofffee shop for a cold cold drink to recharge and then you can be off again
From the Kuching Waterfront it is possible to take boat/ sampan cruise along/ across the Sarawak River.
This is Brilliant. Nowhere else have I seen this. The thing is that once he's stop how does he get about? There is no wheelchair roped to the back. Or the man in red is his personal forklift.
This is by far the most inexpensive transportation I ever taken. The charge is only 30c to cross the river from Kuching River Front to Astana.
We crossed the river in a sampan, it cost the princely sum of 2 British pence
it was very small and low in the water be we crossed safely and didnt get wet
