Kuching, the capital of Sarawak on the island of Borneo is a delightful food lovers paradise! It is also home to some amazing wetlands, gorgeous flora & fauna & just so much greenery!
We came to Kuching initially for a friend's wedding celebration. We arrived roughly a week earlier to enjoy some relaxation and chill time after our own Bali wedding and to pretty much stuff our faces silly! There will be a whole other blog post on Kuching fooding as there was just so much goodness!
Leaving from Haneda International Airport is sooooo convenient! It also has a delightful sushi restaurant to appease your tastebuds of delicious fresh fish. For this trip the majority of my wardrobe packed, was all from my little Tokyo Kaleidoscope label! Such versatility! Don't you love my printed kimono tee (above) teamed with some short shorts I've had for years & an upcycled BeeKeeper Parade Backpack made from a kimono my mother took back to Australia!
Arriving in Kuching several hours later, we took a taxi (TIP: go to the taxi counter & purchase a ticket to easily grab an official taxi for a flat rate! rather than pay the extra charge many hotels will put on for Airport Transfer) to our lovely boutique hotel The Ranee.
The Ranee (named after the official title given to the former King of Sarawak's Queen) is located on the Main Bazaar in the heart of picturesque Old Town (perfect location for exploration) and features 24 beautiful private rooms including five glorious larger suites.
We stayed in the Elizabeth Suite which features a private "sky garden deck" (perfect for us to relax, enjoy some sunshine & work on our tans!) with a view of the Old Town & Bishops House on the skyline.
Exploring the ever colorful India Street and then heading into China Town with some glorious temple visiting.
Taking a moment and enjoying our darling rooftop terrace - so nice to be able to chill and relax.
Epic sunsets in Kuching.
Tokyo Kaleidoscope playsuits, culottes & mini skirts - perfect for exploring on holiday & incorporating into my other wardrobe ^^ They are always in my suitcases now when we go travelling!
