Welcome to Kuching Travel Guide! I hope this simple Kuching travel guide will help you in planning your Kuching’s trip soon. Basically “Kuching”, in Malay, means cat, so Sarawakian always refer Kuching as “Cat’s City”. But don’t get it wrong, it just like a nickname, doesn’t mean Kuching has lots of cat wandering around the city. Just like Singapore, which always been referred as Lion’s City, does it means that lots of lion hanging around in Singapore?
Kuching is a capital of Sarawak, & also a main gateway for travelers to start their journey to the entire Sarawak. If you are planning to travel the entire Sarawak, you can always start from Kuching & end your Sarawak expedition in Miri, which is the second most developed city in Sarawak, after Kuching.

Annah Rais Longhouse Adventure
Annah Rais Longhouse – This is one of the traditional Bidayuh longhouse within 1.5 hours drive from Kuching. This longhouse is pretty old & still maintains its traditional structure since the good olden day. Most of the local people living here are still doing farming & living their life traditionally. You can just pay a day visit to the longhouse, which many local travel agencies in Kuching organize such trip to Annah Rais longhouse. If you really want to experience the longhouse traditional way of living, you will have to stay back, because the half an hour walk around the longhouse will never give you the real experience of longhouse communal life. So if time permit, consider to participate in the homestay program offered by the villagers there. For more information about the homestay program, you can visit this site – Annah Rais Longhouse Adventure.
