Christmas season in Kuching, the capital city of Sarawak is no different from other cities of the world. The Christmas tree figures! This year tHe Spring Shopping Center put up a 46-footer easily making it the tallest and the most well-decorated tree to date.

Speaking of modern shoppping centers in Kuching, Plaza Merdeka located in the historical quarters of downtown Kuching opened its door recently 12-12-12; auspicious indeed. For a start, the once quiet enclave of the Sarawak Tourism Complex and India Street's night life will never be the same again.

Merry Christmas from all of us at Sarawak Tourism Board.

We have discovered a new group of Rafflesia in BUKIT TASAU, KPG LEBOR, GEDONG, SERIAN.

The journey to Bukit Tasau takes about 30 or 45 minutes drive from Kuching City to Serian Town, another 30 minutes from Serian Town to the junction of Bukit Tasau foothill (Kpg Lebor). Continued by another 20 minutes drive up to the hill, and trekking to the RAFFLESIA area takes about 25 minutes.
