This is a virtual tour that is going to bring you to Kuching in the state of Sarawak in Malaysia!

Kuching is the most populous city in the state of Sarawak in Malaysia and has the affectionate nickname "City of Cats", as "Kuching" is thought to be a derivative of the Malay word kucing, which means cat. The statue Big Kitty receives a makeover during special times. You can also see that cat statues, cat souvenirs, and cat attractions inhabit a remarkable amount of real estate here.

A movement control order (MCO) to halt the coronavirus epidemic was first enforced on March 18.In May, a phase under a conditional movement control order (CMCO) was initiated and lasted untilAugust 31. As the number of local COVID-19 infections went down, these restrictions were slowly lifted as businesses, institutions, and certain sectors were gradually allowed to resume operations, entering the recovery phase called the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO).

As the lockdown eases across the city, people are leaving their homes. Business operators and citizens follow the standard operation procedure strictly and have adapted to the new normal. People enjoy their leisure time by going for a walk, shopping, and enjoying local food at street stalls, which are known locally as kopitiam. If you have a chance to visit here, remember to try the very famous and classic Sarawak Malaysian dry noodle dish kolo mee!
