A significant other is usually somebody you love spending time and collecting new experiences with. And although we strive to keep things fresh and exciting, sometimes the stress accumulated at work can translate into lazy days off and doing the same ol’ when on a date. It doesn’t have to be that way, though. Whether you’re just beginning to see someone, been dating for a few years, or happily married with a family, here are some date ideas in Kuching for your next special day.

  • Stroll along Kuching Waterfront

 

Kuching Waterfront, which lines the south bank of Sarawak River, is the place to sample the city’s cosmopolitan vibes. The walkway provides views of the river, access to hotels, and restaurants as well as vendors hawking snacks and street food. You and your partner can watch the sunset at the Darul Hana Bridge, visit Kuching’s oldest Taoist temple at Tua Pek Kong, and snap a photograph at the “Kuching North City Hall Family Cat Statue”, “Kuching Waterfront Bronze Cats” & “Scrap Metal Cat Statue by UiTM Kuching”.

  • Visit the Upside Down House

 

Located in the heart of the city, this upside down gallery is where you can have a fun afternoon with your partner. All the props in this house are more or less fixed on the ceiling and walls upside down. All you have to do is take lots of pictures of you and your partner climbing, jumping or crawling the walls like Spiderman!

 

  • Café hopping

 

Café hopping is the norm for most millennial and you certainly don't need to be a coffee lover to enjoy a cup of good coffee. There are a few places you can café hop with your partner, for eg. Black Bean Coffee & Tea Company, Fig Tree Cafe, The Granary Kitchen + Bar, Indah House, Pinggai Cafe, Lima Tujoh, Commons @ Old Court House, Earthlings Coffee Workshop, The Coffee Code, Wonderboom, and Keeper’s Ground.

  • Go bowling

 

Visit any bowling alley in Kuching (Riverside & Megalanes) and have fun playing against your partner. Unless you’re a pro bowler, you’re probably going to make a few mistakes. Laugh them off. Laugh together. Nothing spices up a date like laughter and a healthy dose of silliness.

  • Have fun at Borneo Samariang Resort City

 

Borneo Samariang Water Park is built on a 30 acre area in Samariang with four major sections, namely the Water Park Entrance, the Hornbill Island, the Salak Beach, and the Santubong Tower.

  • Take a trip to Damai Central

 

Built on a coastal land fronting the panoramic South China Sea, Damai Central (Damai Craftsworld & Event Centre) takes the “center stage” of Damai Bay with the advantage of natural ambience of sun, sand and sea, all set against the backdrop of lush tropical greenery of Mount Santubong. You and your partner can enjoy a sumptuous meal of fresh seafood at the Bayridge Fine Seafood Restaurant or a glass of wine or a cold beer at the Escobar Bar and Grill while admiring the sunset or just watching the ship and fishing boats passing in the distance South China Sea.

  • Embrace local culture at Sarawak Cultural Village

 

Embrace local culture with your partner at Sarawak Cultural Village (SCV). SCV offers visitors the chance to immerse themselves in Sarawakian tradition. The open-air museum features a collection of longhouse replicas such as ones the infamous former headhunting Iban tribes lived in, Malay kampung-style dwellings and Chinese farmhouses. You and your partner can stroll through the village and see traditional instruments inside the Rainforest Music House or follow jungle trails to the foot of Mount Santubong.

 

  • Visit Jong Crocodile Farm & Zoo

 

Fancy meeting up with some biggest alligators? Pay a visit to Jong's Crocodile Farm that is just 20 minutes' drive from Kuching. This 10-hectare attraction is the largest crocodile breeding farm in Malaysia. There is also a demonstration on crocodile feeding that is not to be missed! What’s more, there is a museum onsite and a zoo that houses other local wildlife. Visitors will get to see some barking deers, porcupines, wild boars, monitor lizards and other rare species of animals and birds.

  • Explore the Fairy Cave and Wind Cave

 

Sarawak has a reputation for extensive cave systems penetrating the interior’s limestone cliffs. Both the Fairy Cave and Wind Cave are accessible on a day trip from the capital. The first features an unusual array of stalagmites at its entrance that look a bit like an old Chinese deity. Stand at the entrance with your partner and marvel at the light penetrating in from the roof. Besides Fairy Cave, Wind Cave also offers some of the most spectacular cave scenery in Sarawak.

 

  • Hike Bako National Park

 

Pick a day to hike Bako National Park with your partner. Located an hour northeast of Kuching, this is among the most accessible of Sarawak’s 25 national parks. Visitors can trek along colour-coded trails, see rock formations, including one resembling a cobra’s head, and island hop. Bako also houses several types of mammals including the bearded pig, lizards, and 190 species of bird.
