Shopping and costs in Kuching, Sarawak?

Jump to last reply

I'm going to Kuching in Sarawak Malaysia this month as part of a small-ship cruise. Since we're sleeping and eating on the ship, we only need play money but they've advised us to take some local currency as there 'may be shopping opportunities.'

I'm interested in local arts and crafts, and know ikat is made in this region. Can anyone tell me what I might pay for average quality ikat? Do most of the shops take credit cards or do I need cash?

Also can anyone suggest a budget for a half day wandering around the city? Our group has a city tour in the morning then we have the afternoon free to explore. We need to cover taxis and drinks and perhaps souvenir shopping if we see something for the grandkids.
