The Specialties in the Cat City

HotSpots In Kuching


          Built in 1870, the Astana has a romantic story behind its construction as it was build as a gift to his bride, Ranee Margaret. It is actually three separate buildings fused into one. Each building is connected to the other by short and narrow passageways.

          Today it is the official residence of the Yang di-Pertua Negeri, the Governor of Sarawak. As the official residence of the governor, it is not open to the public except during special events like the Hari Raya celebration.


         There are a few cat statues in Kuching as a tribute to cats (and even a Cat Museum). The waving cat statue is an iconing spot of Kuching. Many tourists get out from their cars at the roundabout just to take a photo with the waving cat statue.

          Nick named The Great Cat of Kuching, the cat statute will be dressed up with traditional attires during major festivals - Chinese New Year, Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Gawai Dayak and Christmas.
