Kuching Waterfront Revisited – Water Tour

on

I am not sure when was the last time I visited Kuching but this year I had the opportunity to visit her again.

At the usual place of interest, the Waterfront, there is not much change from what I saw a few years back. Night along the slow flowing Sungai Kuching seems not lively. Maybe its due to the siesta fever after the most celebrated event in Sarawak this year, the 50th Merdeka anniversary.

Even though the night seems so dull, apart from the musik jalanan from a busker, there still is the popular gambier Sarawak peddler (maybe a change in peddler) around besides the beads and pearl accessories seller.

Signage of daily river activities for tourist is about  the same as what was there since my last visit

The River Cruise is still around but the fare had increased.

I was told that there’s a water taxi service plying between Satok and the Waterfront for those who want to go and shop for your Ikan Terubok Masin. The normal market place where tourist go and buy the Terubok Masin had been shifted across the Sarawak River to ease the traffic congestion around Satok.

Tourist can also take the opportunity to feel the Orang Ulu Traditional boat ride

Apart from these the stalls seems still remain the same.

The only distinct latest view is the Bangunan Dewan Undangan Negeri across the river that can be considered a new background for snapping away photos for memories.
