Hello Kuchingites,

Just wanted to record our appreciation for your splendid hospitality on a recent but regrettably short visit to your lovely city. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment although we did not get to see all we would have liked owing to the time constraints.

We stayed at the Crowne Plaza hotel and we were lucky enough to have great views of the river. It was great fun watching the boatmen ply their trade backwards and forwards all day and we too crossed the river with them a few times.

Kuching, to us, was quite amazing. For what is a relatively small population you have an extraordinary number and variety of shops and outlets which we found irresistable. Also we were highly impressed with the people who were truly open, helpful and generous. We enjoyed many walks around the city and the riverfront and sampled a great number of the many food outlets the city has to offer.

Hopefully, we might be able to return next year for a longer time and enjoy Kuching hospitality again.

Really happy you enjoyed the trip in Kuching. On behalf of the people of Kuching I thank you for visiting our small city.

Have you tried the Sarawak Laksa and famous kolo mee?

Tried various dishes including kolo mee which we found delicious but, foolishly, did not get to try the Laksa. Most definitely will next time. We had several different mee dishes and also nasi lemak as well as many other lovely meals.

Because we wanted to see the city and walk around unfortunately we did not get to too many places but we certainly hope to when we return.

Understand that Malaysia Airlines fly directly from London to Kuching so we are investigating that as our best option.

What would you say is the best time to visit Kuching regarding the weather?

Glad you enjoy your trip here in Kuching.
There are lots more to explore. Especially the food.

As for the weather, I am not very sure whether this year would be much predictable. Mid year (june, july, august) would be the most happening for Kuching City as there are lots of events throughout the month.

But last year there was a haze disaster due to the uncontrol open burning in Indonesia. If it wasn't for the haze, I would say Kuching's weather is ok all year round.

November December January February is most likely to be a rainy season.

Nvm there is still the next time and before you come. Notify us and we will be more than happy to pin point the best place to get Laksas and Kolo mees. haha.

Did you manage to get some souvenirs back?

Hey you should come for the Rainforest World Music Festival. It is a very interesting festival. You can find out more here.

Hmmm... I don't think Malaysia Airlines flies directly from London to Kuching anymore. do they?
