Lovely 4 Bed home in Kuching, Malaysia

Malaysia is divided into two regions: Peninsular Malaysia which lies on the Malay Peninsula and the
states of Sabah and Sarawak on the island of Borneo. To the south of the peninsula is Singapore while to its north is Thailand. Peninsular Malaysia is separated from Sabah and Sarawak by the South China Sea.

My house is situated in Kuching, the capital city of the East Malaysian state of Sarawak. Kuching has been described as one of the most liveable and attractive cities in Southeast Asia. Rich in history with old-world charms blended into 21st century modernity, it is the largest city in the state and rapidly developing.

This riverside city is home to about 600,000 people, made up of a mix of ethnic and indigenous people. Not surprisingly, you will discover that several languages and dialects are spoken. The colourful multicultural makeup of the people makes Kuching an interesting place to learn about
various cultures.

With its rainforest about the size of Austria, Sarawak houses the world's richest and most diverse ecosystem, making it a popular destination for eco-tourism. Its numerous national parks are known for many natural wonders. The state is home to many international heritage sites such as Mulu, Niah, Bako and Gunung Gading national parks.

The largest state in the country with a population of only 2.3 million, Sarawak is also the most culturally diverse in the country. Its 29 indigenous communities are well known for their friendliness and hospitality, and nowhere else in Malaysia can such colourful diversity be found.Internally Sarawak is well-connected by a network of air, road and river
transportation, making travel convenient and affordable.

Weather wise, It is normally wet from November to February and hot and humid the rest of the year.
