Kuching to have more tourist attractions

KUCHING: More tourist attractions can be expected here in the next five years.

They include a water show at the Kuching Waterfront as well as an English tea house and a cascading waterfall at Fort Margherita in Petra Jaya.

Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg said he had appropriated funds to erect these facilities though he had not informed the Kuching North City Hall (DBKU) about it.

“There will be water sprouting from our river in front of the new DUN (State Legislative Assembly Complex), not just water but also music.

“And for Fort Margherita, we will build a tea house and a cascading waterfall with music in front of it (the fort),” he said at the Chap Goh Mei Festival 2018 at the India Street Pedestrian Mall here Saturday night.

Abang Johari pointed out that the ‘water sprouting’ facilities planned at the Kuching Waterfront would be something like the Spectra at Marina Bay Sands Singapore.

As for Fort Margherita, he said a tea house will be built in front of the fort.

He added that a cascading waterfall with music had also been planned to be built near the proposed tea house.

“The tea house is for the people and visitors to enjoy, like the westerners. Fort Margherita is the legacy of the Brookes, and so we want to build an English tea house.”
