Let me see if any of you guys can answer this question:

"What is the true landmark that truely represents Kuching City"

Before you guys start shooting with answers, let me filter it out.

Cat Statue
- this is certainly not a landmark that represents Kuching. Its a misconception of the word Kuching. It does not mean Cat.

Civic Centre
- The building is old and ignored. No one bothers to clean the dirty black roof top. Building not fully utilized and considered as abandon structure. Not fit to be a Kuching city true landmark.

Waterfront
A long stretch of path and rails. What else is there?

All religious places which includes temples, mosque, etc etc
Does not quality either, Kuching is a multi racial state and having temples or religious places as true landmark does not reflect truely represent Kuching


Unlike KL, the twin tower or the telekom tower is a true landmark there. A structure that represents power and recognized around the world.

Or Penang, first thing pop into my head is Penang bridge. Thats their proud landmark.

So anyone can give comment about this?

How about Matang Sua or Santubong Sua? during late noon they look spectacular from aeroplane view. . . surely they can mark the land kua.

When I was in Kuching, one of the more recognizable structures (if we're talking about buildings) is the Civic Center. So I guess you should include that even though it is a run down dirty building next to a cemetery.

The other is Hilton, and the Tin Pek Kin building. And last but not least the gigantic hideous Cat Statue...

This is from a visitor's viewpoint.

I agree with edgar, ie museum.

Other than that, it has to be the civic centre, its sorry state/condition notwithstanding.

Yea I kinda agree...Civic Centre...even though as Webbie points out it is really run-down, it is really unique. The design looks like some kind of umbrella-rocket-ship so its instantly recognizable. The two city council buildings are also quite unique looking. Perhaps when the new DUN is up, that can be a landmark as well....

The Civic Centre looks like a mushroom. a overgrown one. The building has no purpose at all. With the dirty roof, having it known as the local landmark would be very sad.

This could be a good idea but its sort of out of Kuching.

Hmm.. still my conclusion, Kuching has no true landmark that is truely recognize and approved by all Kuching ppl

Dude, a landmark can't be 'appointed'. If it's there and well known, it's a landmark..

*We used to have a run down house in Miri where people call it the ghost house which worked well as a landmark.

"Where did you say your place is again?"
"It's a Krokop, just around the area of the Ghost House"
"Ooooooooooooooh"
