Kuching Heritage Walk

The Kuching Heritage Walk with the media took place on January 11, with the Assistant Minister for Tourism Datuk Lee Kim Shin and the Acting Chief Executive Officer of the Sarawak Tourism Board, Madam Mary Wan Mering, with the objective of promoting cultural and heritage tourism in the city centre of Kuching.

The Heritage Walk began at the Chinese History Museum at waterfront, proceeded to the three Chinese temples along the central road of the town, Carpenter Street, and ended at the Sarawak Museum.

Kuching has hundreds of years of history, and the heritage sites, buildings and relics can be found throughout the city centre, and some of that history is a living history, with some of the oldest restaurants and shops in Kuching still open today.

The walk was particularly special as Datuk Lee brought the media to view the newly discovered pottery shards found near Kuching Waterfront, which the Sarawak Museum personnel believe date back to the Qing Dynasty era.
