Key Highlights

  • See historic Caching from the still waters of the Sarawak River
  • Glide by traditional Malaysian villages
  • The sight of the City Mosque in the distance will have you reaching for your camera
  • Overview

    The very best way to see and enjoy historic Kuching is from the Sarawak river, the main artery around which the city has grown. This river cruise offers a view of the city and its surroundings that is impossible to experience from dry land. Glide past a host of fascinating sights to get a close-up view of traditional life on and around the river including colourful Malay villages. See brightly-painted tambangs ferrying passengers, villagers going about their everyday activities, and fishing boats and wooden cargo vessels plying the river. The cruise runs from late afternoon to twilight with the added pleasure of the setting sun as a backdrop (weather permitting). The cruise ends with colourful lights coming on all along the Kuching Waterfront as you approach the jetty.
