Kuching — 9 Comments

  1. Marta,
    Wonderful photos, and I like the lodge you guys stayed at, I tend to go for these type of lodgings over the Hilton, money saved can be better spent I feel.

    I have to say, the mosque is very interesting looking, I have seen many beautiful mosques, mostly in the Middle East and Egypt, and I’ve never seem anything that resembles the one in Kuching. Very interesting and beautiful.

    I also love the cat statues.

    Sounds like a great city.

  2. Marta, sitting here clicking from one photo to the next I’m just saying to myself, Wow, Wow,oh Wow. These photos are just wonderful. What a wonder land you visited. So exotic and different. Just fascinating. Your husband looks so happy too. I bet it was a great trip for both of you.

  3. Dear martha,
    i had been to kuching many times(more than 10 times) and i still continue to do so as i like the unique atmosphere.another cheaper and comfortable option is the harbourview hotel which located near the temple at the waterfront.http://www.harbourview.com.my/.I would recommend that you go to sibu via boat from kuching which is quite interesting and don’t forget to go to SERIKIN near the border of indonesia as there are a lot of interesting places along the way like the wind cave and the native market along the way.

  4. Love the pictures of the girls in school uniform. We spent three months in Penang — Batu Ferringi beach area — and loved it. One favorite was train from Penang to Bangkok — 24 hours but fun.

    Enjoy:) Kate

  5. Marta, I love your description of Kuching and your photos,depicting the diversity of cultures in this city. It is a place so different from anywhere I have visited!

  6. Thanks everyone for the comments.

    Candi, the mosques were varied. This mosque was completed in 1968 and was the state mosque until a newer one was built in Petra Jaya a suburb. The new one is very modern. This one was build where an older wooden mosque was located. In the foreground is a Muslim cemetery which we also found very interesting. One of my regrets was I did not go into any of the mosques. We were uncertain of the protocol.

    Xplorer: Thanks for the tips. We hope to get to Sibu next time. The Harborview was right across the street from the Singgahsana and looked like a good mid-range valued hotel.
