Create an itinerary including Sarawak Cultural Village
Visit a living museum and interesting cultural preservation project at Sarawak Cultural Village. Sarawak's history is one of immigration and multiculturalism: ethnically Iban, Chinese, and Malay families--along with many others--have called the region home for centuries. Designed to preserve and show Sarawak's heritage, the village of 150 people still retains its traditional ways of life. Take a tour of the village to see Chinese farmhouses alongside Iban longhouses, and learn to distinguish between cultures in terms of design, spirituality, and traditions. Watch a multicultural dance performance in the village theater while enjoying a cup of strong rice wine known as tuak.

  • The best place to know the ethnics in Sarawak. You can learn their culture, their way of living and their home. There’s a cultural performance twice a day and it’s so amazing to watch it.

  • Great place to experience the traditional side of Kuching. It's definitely a place to go with a group. They have some interesting traditional shows, but other than that, there isn't much to do besides strolling around the area with all the attractions and buying souvenirs.
  • Best place to see and experience local culture. You can find good food here.
