Early morning on the 24th Dec 2014, we took the sampan across the Sarawak river to go to Margherita Fort. I suggest you treat this as your morning walk. Wear comfortable shoes and outfit.
Once at the jetty, head towards the village and look for the Fort Margherita or Kubu Margherita signboard. There are some stairs to climb and you'll pass the villagers' house. Please respect their privacy. At top of the stairs, turn left and follow the lane around the school wall.
Then, a little climb and turn... left? (if I remember correctly) Basically head to top of the hill. You'll arrive at a flat area and look for a signboard.
|The fort is just around this corner|
|Tadaaah! We have arrived!|
Read about it here. Don't be like someone I know who confidently commented, "I wonder how a Spanish fort got to be in Kuching?"
It used to be a police museum but it seems like some renovation is going on. Couldn't access the top floor so I guess the buntings I found are plans for the future?
Despite not having many visitors, I found rubbish in the compound. It's a shame la. Please don't litter. Please?
