Kuching is a must-see when visiting Sarawak. The laid-back state capital is rich in Dayak culture, full of tasty food, and is a great jump-off for all your Sarawak adventures. Stretched along the banks of the Sarawak River, the charming Kuching Waterfront is lined with old shop lots selling handicrafts and food, and trickles back into a network of quiet alleyways that are ripe for exploring. The city is surrounded by a handful of parks such as Bako, Kubah, and Tanjung Datu national parks, and the nearby Santubong area is great for wildlife.
