We stayed in Kuching for 5 nights. We had a great time. The locals were extremely friendly and welcoming. We found Kuching to be less touristy than Sabah but the town was still set up for tourists, with lots to do. We visited the orangutan rehabilitation centre, about 30mins from Kuching which was great and very good value compared to Sepilok in Sabah. We also visited Bako National Park which was a great day out, where we saw lots of wildlife including Proboscis Monkeys. Getting the local bus to Bako was easy. The Tourist Info in Kuching can advise you on all the options of getting to the orangutans and to Bako. We had some lovely meals in Kuching and the food is so cheap, it was incredible value.
