By the time we returned back to our hostel in Kuching , it was late afternoon and we decided to check out the Kuching Waterfront area which is just a short 10minutes (1km) walk away.

The Kuching Waterfront is a relatively small area along the river (Sungai Sarawak). This is the old town centre of Kuching which includes the Sarawak State Legislative Assembly Building and Fort Margherita on the northern banks, and the Old Courthouse and waterfront bazaar on the southern banks.

During the evenings, the waterfront bazaar has a number of al fresco style riverside food stalls serving local dishes. Sensing that these stalls mainly cater to tourist, we decided to take a boat to the northern side of the river where there’s a local food centre.

The frequency of the boats are high and there’s typically 1 boat waiting for passengers at the jetty at any one time. The boatman will wait till the boat is full before leaving for the opposite bank; the boats do get filled up rather quickly. ......
