Leave some time on your itinerary for the outdoors! Just an hour’s drive from Kuching, the pristine waters of the Semadang River are great for group kayaking. Be sure to slow down from time to time to take in the views of the lush hilltops in the distance, and to admire the smooth flow of the river. The two-hour trip downstream also makes for a good workout – and, as a cheeky bonus, your friendly guides will help you catch a fish and then barbecue it for your lunch! Eats & Drinks Kuching’s heritage cuisine is hard to resist for foodies. Some of the best bites are found on street carts and in hawker centres; interestingly, many are variations of the celebrated dishes we have in Singapore, only a lot cheaper! A must-try is Sarawak laksa, which is less creamy and more savoury compared to ours. It’s made with vermicelli, coconut milk, shrimp paste, herbs and red chillies that gives it the iconic red colour. Taste it and you’ll see why American celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain once described Sarawak laksa as the “breakfast of the gods”.
