Standing proudly along the waterfront, Fort Margherita is a historic site in Kuching that provides a unique insight into the region’s rich history. While this famous attraction can be reached by water taxi from the Kuching Waterfront, those holidaying in the city should look to find centrally located serviced apartments Kuching has to offer since it provides easy access to the many local attractions. Citadines Uplands Kuching is one such apartment hotel in Kuching which is conveniently placed opposite the Spring Shopping Centre.
Once you have made your way across the river, head past the village and soon you will be at Fort Margherita. Dating back to 1879, the fort was used to safeguard the city against marauding pirates and is very much a part of local history. This white fort is similar to that of an English castle and during the 1970’s was converted into a Police Museum. As you explore the site you will come across watch towers and even remnants of old canons that let you get an idea of the grandeur of this site in days of old.
