Kuching, the charming capital of Sarawak, is one of the two East Malayan states on the island of Borneo. Once you arrive, you will love this city and it's worth it to spend a few days. The laid-back atmosphere, the markets, and the nightlife will detain you here probably for more time then you planned. The city isn't big, so you can discover it on foot, but it has a lot to explore. The waterfront is the main area in the city during day and night; on one side, there are the traditional markets and handicraft shops called the main Bazaar, and on the other side is the historical part with the ancient courthouse building that now houses the tourist center. Obviously the waterfront is also the place where a lot of restaurants, cafes, pubs, and bars appear for an evening drink. Use your time to visit at least one of Kuching's museums -- either Sarawak museum or Islam museum, according to your favorite theme or simply visit both. On the other side of the river, you can find Fort Margherita and the village called Kampongs.
The easiest way to arrive in Kuching is by airplane; there are airport taxis to take you into the city. If you are already in Sarawak, then the bus should be the best option. The hostels in Kuching are pretty fair, with good standards of cleanliness and all the facilities you need for a fair price. When booking your hostel in Kuching, try to stay as near as possible to the waterfront to enjoy the city at its best –- probably as you move closer to the waterfront the prices rise a bit, so find the best tradeoff for yourself.

"Great staff and nice stay - We stayed here for a week and had a very pleasant experience. Friendly and very helpful/knowledgeable staff. Place was kept very clean except the bathrooms were constantly wet because the showers are inside the same tiny room as the toilet (not my favorite). We stayed in both the dorm room and a private double during our stay. Dorm was a bit dingy smelling, but not too bad. The beds are on the floor which is nice,...
