The Old Courthouse is a wonderful colonial building in the center of Kuching, right next to the waterfront. There is a cool coffee shop inside. It is free to visit and well worth it.

It is a very nice building with a courtyard, you can sit on the benches there. Also, the tourist information centre is in the house, where they can give you some info on whatever you are interested in, grab a copy of brochures and maps....More

If you are already at the waterfront or at the plaza merdeka go ahead and walk through these buildings. The garden is beautiful and the buildings are unique. Also check out the Brooke monument at the front across from the square.

The architecture really evoked a sense of the past. They have made the most of the building, a range of businesses eg restaurant, bar, tourist info centre. Even the toilets were amazing!!!
