Sarawak Tourism Board relocates Visitor’s Information Centre to Old Courthouse

KUCHING: The Sarawak Tourism Board (STB)’s Kuching Visitor’s Information Centre (VIC) has been relocated to the Sarawak Tourism Complex at the Old Courthouse here.

STB acting chief executive officer Mary Wan Mering, in a statement yesterday, said the relocation of VIC was necessary in the board’s efforts to better accommodate visitors’ needs by strategically stationing STB tourist coordinators where they would be easily accessible to provide tourism information and guidance.

The new location is situated between the entrances to India Street and Carpenter Street as well as the Kuching Waterfront, making it easily accessible to visitors seeking information.

The VIC is also scenically located on a significant heritage site, with the complex’s main building, the Old Courthouse, which dates back to 1871 when it was the seat of the state government.
