"Sarawak Cultural Village." Top 5 Page for this destination Kuching Things to Do Tip by Robdaz

Kuching Things to Do: 35 reviews and 50 photos

If you are short of time and can't visit an real Longhouse of the local Dayaks or other local tribes in the interior of Sarawak, this is the place to go. It is touristy no doubt but it will give you a good taste of the different cultures of Sarawak including the Malays and chinese.

All the different styles of buildings of the local tribes are erected around large pond and you can have a go at Blow pipe, the traditional way where the dayaks used to hunt , bamboo dancing or making local delicacies as you walk around from one building to the other. There is also a great dance performance by the local troupe.

This is a living museum and they even organised weddings for couple who want to get married the traditional dayaks way. It is also the home of the annual Rainforest World Music Festival where performers from all round the world come to share their craft.
