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.

  • Welcome dances at each hut and a hilarious show at the end. Well worth indulging in some tourism. Have a go with a blow pipe too!

  • We enjoyed out trip here.. Being in Kuching for the first time. People are friendly here. Traffic is also stress free to drive in kuching. We rented a car to move around. It was quite an interesting experience to go into each of the seven houses that depict how the six different ethnic tribes live. The performance which is offered twice a day is magnificent. Entrance Fee Rm95
  • Nice experience to know most of the ethnics in Sarawak. The cultural performance dance is good. Just that there's some mosquitoes so do remember to bring insect repellent. RM85 if you buy online in advance.
