The central part of Kuching extends south from the Sarawak river and contains a number of colonial era heritage buildings. It is a pleasant area where to walk and experience local culture and history. The Old Courthouse near the Kuching waterfront was built in 1883. Initially it was used as a government office and venue for state ceremonies, later Sarawak state council meetings were held here. Today the building houses the visitors information centre.
