    I can't see why not, there were other travellers there alone. The people are friendly and nice, the city and surrounds is interesting. It is cheaper than Singapore, and probably the same or cheaper than KL. We found it very cheap, we come from Australia.
    Have tips on Kuching page if you want to look, just click on name above photo.

    We were there May 2009 and had a great time. Much to see and we always felt safe. Plenty of places to eat cheaply and also backpacker type accommodation. Check out Kuching VT pages.

    When I travelled to Kuching it was mostly as part of a group tour, but I also spent some time in Kuching by myself at the end of my trip before travelling back to Kuala Lumpur.

    I found that the city was very safe and I never felt worried or scared whilst walking about alone. Kuching is a very small city compared to say Kuala Lumpur so you should feel fine here.

    Borneo is generally more costly to travel around than the mainland of Malaysia but it does not have to be expensive. There are quite a few good hostels or guesthouses around Kuching that you could stay at.

    Kuching is a great place to travel to if you want a bit of fresh air like you say. Kuching, even though it is the capital of Sarawak is a very small city. It has a lovely waterfront where I would recommend you take a stroll along, compared to Singapore in terms of traffic and noise it’s a haven.
