This walkabout tour commences at the Kuching waterfront, with a visit to the “Tua Tek Kong” Chinese temple and Chinese Historical Museum where the historical Fort Margherita can be viewed on the other side of the Sarawak River. From the temple you will walk through Carpenter Street, consisting of old shop houses on both sides of the narrow street passage. At the end of the street junction you pass by the General post office.
Also situated around this area are historical buildings and monuments built during the era of the Brooke dynasty which consists of the Round Tower, the Pavilion, the Brooke Memorial Monument, the Square Tower and the Old Court House.
Proceed to India Street, a pedestrians’ shopping mall specializing in local and imported textiles. From India Street, walk through a narrow covered passageway where you will find a Masjid India on your left with very low walls built sometime in the mid-19th century. Just as you reach the end of the passageway, your senses will detect the slight aroma of Indian spices which navigates you to Gambier Street. Proceed to Brooke Dockyard and Dockyard lane passing by the Old Fire Brigade Station (known now as the open air market). Our last stop is a direct walk pass the Merdeka Square to the St Thomas’s Cathedral for a short visit. The tour would then conclude at the Sarawak Museum which could take your time in browsing around and returning to the hotel on our own.
