Fort Margherita, on the Northern bank of the Sarawak River, right opposite the city centre, is part of the colonial historical attractions of Kuching. Built by Charles Brooke as defense against the pirates, actually is not that interesting as attraction itself (the fort is non-remarkable and it houses a non-remarkable Police Museum) but from the terrace you will enjoy very nice views of the city centre and the Sarawak River. You can reach the fort by taking the tambang-shuttle on the city centre riverwalk or, if you are taking a rivercruise on a tambang, ask the sailor to stop by and wait for your visit.

Directions: In the city centre, on the Southern bank of Sarawak River, right opposite the riverwalk.
