After spending quite some time and having our breakfast in Atap Street, we took a cab and headed over to Planetarium Sultan Iskandar.
This is the first planetarium in Malaysia.
They displayed a short movie called “The Passport to Universe” which was narrated by Tom Hanks. The show would be displayed even if there is only 1 audience and the entrance fee is only RM 2 per pax. The visual is projected onto the white-domed ceiling and you kinda have to lean your head and body backwards in the revolving chair.
After the 20-minutes show, we walked over to Kuching Civic Center. It was a approximately 3-storey’s height complex and was designed to be somehow like an octagon-shaped tower with a 360 degree view of Kuching City. The scenery up there was breathtaking 😀 I took pictures of Kuching City from every angle of the tower like a mad person. I hope I didn’t miss any view worth for shooting.
It was very quiet up there and I doubt there was anyone up there when we were running around the complex. Ok, enough with Kuching Civic Center.
Since the area was quite secluded and we could hardly see any cab around, we were trying to be adventurous and walked all the way down to the main street. The weather was super hot and we decided to stop by a small chinese stall located near the busy street for a cold drink. I had shaved ice again.
Nothing much to be seen here. We gave these places a try because it was listed on website as one of the must-visit historical places. It wasn’t cheap taking cab from one place to another. You should really consider renting a car if you wish to explore the whole Kuching City. 🙂
