Inspirock Rating:
4/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web
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. Plan your visit to Sarawak Cultural Village and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Kuching family vacation planner.

  • Definitely worth visiting to find out more about Sarawak bumiputera culture. See the different races and their traditions. You get to try out using a blow dart too!

  • The place is really beautiful. Of course this is more à touristic village than à traditional one. Still you can enjoy the view of the mountain above the lake, the bamboo bridge and the cultural show.
