Kuching my Home Town - Main Bazaar & Waterfront

The Main Bazaar is one of the oldest streets in Kuching. It was here that the earliest shophouses were built - as a base for the traders and wholesalers. Early traders were mainly Chinese, but there were also Indians and others. Today, the traders and wholesalers are slowly making way for souvenir shops and lodging houses, due to the advent of tourism. 

Next to the Main Bazaar is the Kuching Waterfront, a redevelopment of the old waterfront which was controversial at the time, as many lamented the change of character. Today this is a popular public space where many open air events are held - most recently the Kuching Regatta, a popular rowing contest.
