Last year I managed to score tickets to Kuching, Sarawak for a mere RM308 inclusive ourself and our little one. I wanted to cover Borneo and can officially say that I almost have, hehe! We will try to reach Sabah soon.
Hey hey gfs, am travelling again with my old folks, they seem to be taking me everywhere they go thesedays, how boring! Text ya when I'm back. Peace!! :D
We stayed in Ariva Getaway Kuching which was a 5 minutes drive from the Waterfront. The room only cost me RM130 per night and it was pretty decent. Small but very cozy.
We also rented a Saga BLM to take us around for only RM80 a day. It was the cheapest rate I could find. Taking cab within Kuching is very expensive that is why we opted to drive ourselves..makes it a whole lot more fun exploring too!
First stop on Friday when we arrived was to check out the Waterfront area. We sat by the River and ate some Cucur Udang for snack. Their version seems to be very different but it turned out to be pretty good that we ordered another plate.
The view of the Astana from the riverfront.
There are choices of taking a cruise too to check out the area. We opt for the river cruise and it cost us RM19 per person.
One of the things I made sure to properly research was where to eat. Kuching may not be the most exciting city we've been to but at least the food was DELICIOUS! Now I totally understand why those who are from Sarawak are totally proud of their food.
Just one of the MUST-EAT when you're in Kuching..I present you Kolo Mee! This was the halal version.
