After breakfast, he left for work and I decided to walk around instead of heading back to the hotel. As it was still early and most business only open at 9am, I decided to take the Kuching Heritage Walk as shown on the map.
Its like a prison + detention place kinda thing. It wasn't open so I couldn't see inside.
Went in for a peak. They have 4 stories showing different kind of textiles, fashion, material and craftsmanship. Its quite scary walking alone as there were mannequins sitting or standing quietly, looking really realistic. I will never know when one will jump up and stab me from the back or something.. Haha. Guess I watch to many horror movies.
Looks really old outside but take a peak inside and you'll discover a bustling nosiy normal Pos Office.
I think someone told me it cost RM1 for a ride.
This walk took me about 3 hours just walking and snapping pictures.. oh, and I did some shopping too :) Was worth it cos it gave me the opportunity to see and understand Kuching better. Would love to go back as I did not mange to complete the whole thing. And found out much later that the Kuching Museum is a must-see. :(
Kuching its such a queer place. Its modern-ish yet maintains its old town charm, with new high rise buildings just across a riverside kampung. Vast differences yet peacefully co-existing.
