Located in the east of Malaysia, Kuching is the capital city of Sarawak, and is situated on the wider island of Borneo.

Knowledge of the day: Did you know why Kuching is named "Kuching"?

This is said to come from a miscommunication during the colonial period when the local people were asked the name of the city and thought that James Brooke, the first British Rajah of Sarawak, was pointing to a cat. As such they replied ‘kucing’, the Malay word for cat. Once you reach the city, you will be welcomed by the statues of cats, they even have a Cat Museum and a Kuching Mosque in pink colour. Not kidding, it's true! 

Many tourists flock to Kuching to learn more about the unique culture found in this part of Malaysia, you can visit the Sarawak Cultural Village. There are live demonstrations which will teach you ancient techniques such as weaving, bamboo carving, and bead making. It's very fun when you first hand on. Some other tourist destination you don't want to miss is Kuching Waterfront, the Astana which has a unique history during the time of Charles Brooke, Cat Museum, Kuching Mosque, Sarawak Museum, Fort Margherita and The Old Courthouse.

If you would like to explore some natural reserves, you can go to the Bako National Park and Gunung Gading National Park where the world largest flower, Rafflesia, grows.
