Revisits to Sarawak Cultural Village

Having been to a few places in Sarawak for shooting of Tourism Malaysia advertisments over the years, Sarawak Cultural Village in Kuching is the only place that I went back 3 times. The village offers a quick and accessible option to see a few of the Sarawak tribes and their traditional houses without having to venture deep into the interior of Sarawak forest. Nested at the foothills of Mount Santubong, Sarawak Cultural Village is about 35km from Kuching.

This place offers a good day tour of Sarawak culture, showcasing the different ethnic groups, their long houses lifestyles and handicrafts amidst the natural tropical environment. Inside the village there is an auditorium playing 2 shows per day of dance, songs of different ethnic cultures. The show is simple but entertaining and suitable for whole family to enjoy. The warrior dance is probably the most popular as it include some lighter moments and interaction with the audiences.
