Kuching is the capital city of Sarawak, one of the states in East Malaysia. You think you have known it all, the museums, the famous caves, beaches, the commercial cultural villages. BUT do you? Here's a list of things and facts you might not have known, we are betting on it.
HERE WE GO!
No. 1: Hidden beauties within Kuching itself
Wait what??? These places actually exist around Kuching? Why havent I heard about them? We want to show you these places that are not commercialized and stunningly beautiful. They are not offered elsewhere, so you'll have quite a lot to brag to your friends.
No. 2: Amazing traditional food
Yeah we know Malaysia is famous for its food, but what about the food scene in the rural areas? We are happy to report that even all the way into the deeper parts of Kuching, there's still AMAZINGGG food....! Just look at the smiles on these people's faces!
No.3: Fantastic people
They say that Malaysians are generally friendly and hospitable. The people here just brought it to the next level and we're speaking from a personal point of view. The Bidayuh natives are probably the most hospitable people we have interacted with.
No. 4: The rich culture
Despite slowly disappearing in the midst of modernization and lack of appreciation, the authentic cultural aspect of the Bidayuh people is spectacular, and colorful.
Last but not least.......
No.5: The communities in need..
We have gone through a good list of things that are amazing + spectacular, but what you really might not know, is that the communities, especially the rural youths need a lot of help. Did you know that one of five rural youths are unemployed, and 30% of employed ones are doing low quality work (International Labor Organization, 2013). We have personally how brilliant these people are, just looking for a breakthrough in life.
