The 32nd Asian Intercity Bowling Championship, hosted by the Amateur Bowling Association of Sarawak, will be held from October 29 to November 5, 2018 at the Megalanes Sarawak Bowling Centre for member cities of the Asian Intercity Bowling Council of which this tournament is sanctioned by the Asian Bowling Federation and Malaysian Tenpin Bowling Congress.
Described as one of the most attractive cities in Southeast Asia, Kuching is the State capital. It is a city rich in history, and modern day Kuching is a delightful blend of modern structures and old-world charm.
Kuching is divided by the Sarawak River; the south is a commercial residential area, dominated by Chinese, while the north shore is predominantly Malay in character, with old kampong houses lining the river. The two parts of the city are very different in character and even have separate mayors and separate town halls.
Kuching is known to be the highest populated city in the entire Sarawak in Malaysia. While the Bruneian Empire was in administration, Kuching was the third capital. Only after Kuching was handed over to James Brooke, it became the capital of Sarawak.
While Charles Brooke was the ruler, the city kept flourishing. It saw some major development like construction of hospitals, schools, lavatories, prison and souks. World War II made Kuching a part of the Japanese province post Japanese invasion. However, the town was not damaged even after the war.
