"Sarawak - Basic Facts" Top 5 Page for this destination Malaysia Favorite Tip by SLLiew

Malaysia General: 326 reviews and 270 photos


Favorite thing: Sarawak - 1.24k sq km, 1.9 million population
Capital - Kuching
Time zone: same as rest of Malaysia (8 GMT)

This is the largest state in Malaysia and located in Borneo island.

There is a "highway" from Kuching to Miri. There is no railway line.

River transportation is still important. Travelling between Kuching, Sibu, Bintulu and Miri is best done by air.

Have borders with Sabah, Brunei and Kalimintan (Indonesia)
