There’s more to the East Malaysia drinking scene than just tuak. While the fermented rice drink holds a dear place in the heart of the Borneo denizens, there is much to explore, especially when it comes to places to drink in Kuching, the capital of Sarawak.
When it comes to food, we’re certain you’ve filled up a long list of places to visit and snacks to try — hello, kolo mee. We know you won’t run out of activities to do in Kuching too, from getting your fill of forest bathing in the national parks to soaking in the indigenous culture. But when it comes to drinks, know that there is more to drink in Kuching than just regular beer bars. Places to drink in Kuching are social venues where you go to see, be seen, and mingle with the friendly guests.
Our bar guide will show you where to make the best out of your nightlife there. There’s a vegan-friendly bar, a vintage bar on one of the oldest streets in Kuching, and bars that show you can have a good time while saving an endangered species of animal native to Borneo.
