Kuching Holidays Overview

 

Kuching is the capital of the state of Sarawak in Malaysia. It is located on the island of Borneo and is the fourth largest city in Malaysia. Kuching has a population of just over 600, 000. Its name is believed to mean “cat” derived the Malay word “kucing” which means “cat”. This is why the locals refer to Kuching as “cat city”
 
Kuching has an interesting history. It became the personal kingdom of James Brooke, a British adventurer about 200 years ago, after it was gifted to him by the Sultanate of Brunei for helping crush a rebellion. Brooke’s family ruled it until December 1941 when the Japanese invaded and occupied the city and larger Sarawak. After end of World War Two, the third Brooke heir of Kuching, Sir Charles Vyner Brooke, ceded the city to the British empire. Eventually, the British granted independence to Sarawak in 1963 and it became part of the newly independent nation of Malaysia on 16th September 1963.
 
The city of Kuching is multi racial and multi cultural. The Chinese form the largest racial grouping at about 45% followed by the original inhabitants, the Malays. Other racial groupings include; Indians (Tamils, Sikhs and Punjabis) and numerous indigenous people.
