The city of Kuching, a bustling and thrilling part of Malaysia’s Sarawak state, is a place that will appeal to visitors who enjoy a more offbeat alternative to the big-city attractions of Kuala Lumpur. Its magnificent waterfront, which runs along the Sarawak River, features markets and food vendors. Walk for a while along that waterfront and you will see some of the city’s monuments too. There are 19th-Century buildings such as Fort Margherita and the Astana. Visitors to the city - located on the island of Borneo - will find themselves enchanted by attractions as diverse as Bako National Park and the Kuching Cat Museum. If you’re looking for a quirky, fabulous holiday, then check out the Airbnb vacation rentals below.

1. Kai Joo Suites #1: Loft in the city (from USD 49)

This loft - one of three on offer from the same host - is recommended as a perfect place for couples, especially honeymooners. However, you could travel as a party of three and still enjoy the wonderful 360-degree views that this top-floor apartment offers. Restaurants, both sit-down and take-out, are plentiful and within minutes of walking there is a bustling shopping mall. The accommodation also offers a kitchenette with a microwave. It’s not enough to rustle up a three-course meal but is perfect for rustling up something simple. There is also a WiFi-ready media player with plenty of pre-loaded films and shows.

4. Charmingjazz Suite, above VivaCity Mall (from USD 49)

This stunning apartment is newly-built and large enough to comfortably accommodate five people. Among the entertainment options, you will find a Smart TV - although the owners do not subscribe to any channels. The set can be used to watch YouTube, play USB devices or stream shows from a mobile device. There’s also a well-equipped kitchen should you wish to do some simple cooking, although your food needs can also be served in the VivaCity Mall, where there are almost endless options from a KFC to a Raw Juicery. We advise that you get out and explore the city, of course. However, you could easily spend the entire holiday in the mall and never get bored.
