The history of modern Sarawak began when an english adventurer James Brooke sailed up the Sarawak river in his schooner in 1839. Retrace this historic route with a (Traditional Boat) boat ride down this same river which still bustles with its charm.
The trip also offers a panoramic view of the fast developing Kuching City, where the presence of old buildings standing amidst modern ones give the place a quaint character. Although Kuching has undergone much development over the years, its Waterfront still retain its old charm. This contrasting picture is readily apparent with a river cruise where one will notice the commercial growth on one side of the river and the idyllic village lifestyle on the other.
The cruise passes through the Waterfront Esplanade, the many historical and beautiful landmarks such as the Fort Margherita, the Astana, State Assemble Building - Domes Mosque, Brooke Dockyards, traditional Malay houses built on stilts and a Chinese fishing village and return to the hotel.
