Making Kuching Waterfront attractive with more activities

KUCHING: Kuching Waterfront’s management company Sara Urusharta Sdn Bhd will work closely with stakeholders such as the Sarawak Tourism Board in organising activities to attract more visitors to the waterfront throughout the day.

Its event and public relations manager Arthur George Clancy said the waterfront had been receiving a constant number of visitors, peaking at a specific time of the day.

“We have locals who commute across the Sarawak River to the city everyday for work and school. Due to our hot weather, there are more people from 3pm till sunset. During weekdays, we have a few hundred people passing through, and two to three bus-loads of tourists are common,” he said.

There were more people throughout the weekends, he told reporters here yesterday.

Arthur said the move was also in line with the Culture & Community 2011 programme launched by Tourism and Heritage Assistant Minister and Sarawak Economic Development Corporation chairman Datuk Talib Zulpilip last year.

Therefore, events would be held to encourage people’s participation in recreational activities and showcase Sarawak’s diverse cultural extravaganza with the hope that these would further improve the waterfront as an iconic centre for arts, music and community-based activities, he said.
