“Take a picture and then move on”
Reviewed 7 May 2012 via mobile

A nice building, but there is not too much else to see here. Take a picture, enjoy the waterfront and then move on.

“Needs a clean up”
Reviewed 15 April 2012

Quaint, small tower that is one of Kuching's colonial heritage buildings.

Would look much better with a repaint.

“Abandoned fortress”
Reviewed 13 December 2009

Build in 1879, firstly served as City Jail, later converted into defensive fortress, then a dance hall. Before it being closed down recently, it had being used as information center for tourists. It is located at the end of Waterfront, oppositing the new State Legislative Assembly Building. The tower is not big, nor magnificient. However, it form a great contrast between new and old town when we backgrounded it with the new assembly building.

You can visit the old Town Court, Charles Brooke Monument, India Street, and Main Bazaar together. For more information about our experience in Kuching, pls visit our blog at:
