affordable and dirt cheap...RM64 per night
sadly, it is also the road where the two British medical students were stabbed to death.
It is at the far end of the waterfront
what a dorm might look like...
we had the three bedded room, turns out to have two single and
one double bed, can sleep 4 or 5!
the tiny lobby and the only receptionist hahah!!!
simple room with basic amenities
see, the waterfront and the town?
has mats and cushions for chilling on the floor
every evening and morning we just walk out to Jalan Padungan to look for food
early evening....going out for our cruise
has a padang right in front of the hotel which is actually an office block converted into a hotel
since it is a waterfront, boats will bring in the latest catch, and there is a fish market selling the freshest fish!
people from near and far will flock to buy them
there is also an ice factory nearby and these men have already done their day's work!
it is only 8 or 9 in the morning!!!
we walked around, marvelling at the still undeveloped and informal atmosphere of this last stretch of the waterfront....
part of the waterfront and the last vestiges of untouched wharf...
boathouses that bespoke of an era suspended in time
with unspoilt views like this!
Then the view is gone,
and we walked across the padang for our breakfast...
this coffee shop visible from our hotel window serves
Kolo mee, Sarawak mee etc,
but only in the morning, by 11 or 12 it is sold out!
Since it was packed inside, we asked for a seat outside,
and surprise, surprise!!!
they carried a table and two chairs and accommodated our wishes!!!
De Palma Waterfront Kuching Hotel,
if you do not mind bare necessities....
after all you only come back to the room to bathe and sleep!!!
