From freshly-painted, technicolour India Street and Mosque Lane to the gritty dockside area, downtown Kuching is a wonderland of colours and textures. The shophouse architecture, cultural melange, street art and interesting nooks and crannies reminded me a lot of Penang (another Malaysian city I had a lot of fun photographing when we visited last year). Kuching has it all, minus the throngs of tourists you find in George Town, which is why I’ve decided that it’s one of my favourite cities in Southeast Asia. When we weren’t busy eating and visiting museums, we spent a good chunk of time in Sarawak’s capital wandering the streets and laneways, soaking up the humidity and snapping photos. Here are a few of my favourites!
