Kuching - after the sun sets on the river
Kuching, which literally means “cat” in Malay, is the state capital of Sarawak. It is the 7th largest city in the country and sits on the banks of the Sarawak River. The Sarawak river splits Kuching into 2 districts – the North & the South. These 2 districts are governed by two separate administrative groups and have two different mayors.
But no one can stay in Kuching without watching the sun setting over the Sarawak River .... either by a commercial sunset cruise or sitting quietly on the riverbank. It truly is quite beautiful.
The above is one of the "sunset cruises" returning to the waterfront after the sun has set over Kuching.
