Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysian Borneo

The state of Sarawak is located in the northern strip of the Island of Borneo. It is the largest state in Malaysia and Sarawak houses one of the world's richest and most diverse ecosystems. Sarawak was famed as a land full of headhunters and longhouses lining lazy rivers. Contrary to these legends, Sarawak has since experienced rapid urban development especially in its major cities. It has emerged as a premier tourist attraction in the region, promoting its richness in culture, adventure and nature.

Despite its growth and development, the state of Sarawak still maintains its reputation as the most exotic state in Malaysia and Asia's best kept secret. Rainforests of Sarawak are among the oldest in the world, boasting the Rafflesia - a flower the size of a coffee table, snakes that fly and bearded monkeys.

KUCHING - CAT CITY OF THE WORLD

Kuching, in the national language, means cat. This is accentuated by dozens of cat statuettes around the city plus a world-famous cat museum featuring statues, photographs and memorabilia gathered from all over the globe.

The capital city of Sarawak was famed in the early days as a river port ruled by legendary White Rajahs. The olden day stories of Kuching are enchanting, as acknowledged by the dozens of biographies and books published and screenplays written based on its rich history.

As the largest city in the state, Kuching is now a rapidly developing city, boasting a population of almost half a million. In the city itself, one can find bustling shopping hubs and eclectic buildings that consist of a mix of modern and post-colonial architecture. Within minutes of journey to its outer boundaries are magnificent mountains, unspoilt beaches and even an award winning "living" museum, the Sarawak Cultural Village .

Kuching's environment is safe and peaceful, its topography is free from earthquakes, tsunamis and other natural disasters with a wonderfully tropical climate that is full of sunshine.

Voted as one of the most livable cities in Asia in year 2000, Kuching remains one of the best kept secret of the region.
