Take in the history of the Sarawak Chinese as you take a walk through Ewe Hai and Carpenter Streets. Be fascinated by stories of their origins and the distinct local Chinese culture — including a bit on education, religion, music and festivals. This two-hour guided tour will have you take a closer look at different and distinct architectural features of temples of the Hokkien and the Hainanese, and learn exactly what makes the trades and shops typically Chinese.

This guided tour of Kuching’s Chinese History is organised by the Sarawak Heritage Society and Friends of the Sarawak Museum.

 

Audio-described tours of the Chinese History Museum for persons who are blind or visually impaired are available on demand.
