What you can expect

Get a special perspective on Malaysia's local peoples and traditions with a visit to Sarawak Cultural Village. This living museum showcases the region's unique and diverse cultures in an accessible, visitor-friendly setting, just a 35-minute drive from Kuching.

A convenient ride from your hotel brings you to the scenic 17-acre (6.8-ha) site that houses the Cultural Village. Its 7 authentic traditional buildings are populated by members of Sarawak's many native peoples going about everyday activities, from bamboo carving and bead-work to weaving, sugar-cane crushing, pepper-growing, and the preparation of bird's nests.

During your visit, you can learn how to throw a Malay spinning top, shoot a Penan blowpipe, or pick out a tune on an Orang Ulu Sape. The tour concludes with a colourful multi-ethnic performance in the village's air-conditioned mini-theatre before your vehicle takes you back through the countryside to your hotel.
