The second day of the trip, we went for Kuching City.Wandered here and there by ourselves. The van driver told us that the historical building is not just far from each other. There are just in one place. You just need to walk few distance only. Therefore, he dropped us at the Kuching Waterfront and we were exploring the Kuching city by ourselves. And it's fun hehe..
At our room veranda back at the resort..
Ready for breakfast before go for walking around Kuching city
Ok, breakfast-ing.. to gain energy for walk..hehe
After about 30 minutes journey from Damai Puri resort, we reached here.
The Kuching Waterfront
Behind us the official residence of the Governor of Sarawak called "Astana" which means "palace" in the local dialect and were constructed in1870 for newly married of the second Rajah of Sarawak, Charles Brooke.
Behind us the "Fort Margherita Building". It was build by Charles Brooke in 1879 and named it after his wife "Margaret". It was built as defence line against pirates.
How relaxing.. Duduk-duduk baca paper di waterfront..
Still at waterfront area
Main Bazaar at Kuching's oldest street. You can shop for souvenir around here at more cheap price. I noticed they still maintaining the old buildings rather than to replace it to a new one. Most of them were built from James Brooke era.
Kuching Waterfront Bazaar. The place where you can shop for souvenirs but slightly expensive than at the Kuching's oldest street shops.
Mee Jawa. I was so hungry while walking here and there, so we stopped a while at this shop (forgot already the named of the coffee shop) located at the main bazaar area. I decided to ordered this, while hubby want to find for Mee Kolo at other coffee shop later. So, he let me eat first. The taste not really nice haha..
Ok, this is Chinese History Museum. It was built in 1912 used as a court by Chinese community until 1921. This museum was officially opened in 1993. Interesting place to visit because there's a lot of history information here about immigration of Chinese to Sarawak. The entrance fee for this museum is free.
