Tour Description:

Your adventure begins with a scenic 45-minutes’ drive towards Damai Peninsular at the Kuching Wetlands National Park, which covers an area of 6,610 hectares on the estuarine reaches of the Sibu Laut and Salak rivers. The park was first designated as a wetland of international importance under the RAMSAR Convention in 2005. Serving as one of the last remnants of the formerly extensive Sarawak Mangrove Forest Reserve, the mangroves are also an important spawning and nursery ground for fish and prawn species.

On the cruise, we will proceed to explore the river estuaries at the Park. The mangrove shoreline offers sightings of much exciting wildlife including proboscis monkeys, long tailed macaque monkeys, silver-leaf monkeys and monitor lizards. A range of bird life can be found as well, including kingfishers, white-bellied sea eagles and other shore birds. If you are lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of the elusive Irrawaddy Dolphins as they frolic around the estuaries in the morning hours.

After a hearty lunch, we will proceed to the Sarawak Cultural Village, also known as the ‘Living Museum’, the perfect place to be for an introduction to the local culture, traditions and lifestyle. On arrival at this award-winning 17-acre museum, you will be able to explore the seven authentic replicas of ethnic houses which include: Chinese Farm House, Malay Stilted House, Melanau Tall House, the Penan Hut as well as the Longhouses of the Iban, Bidayuh and Orang Ulu, just to name a few. The differences are distinct; shown through a melangé of arts and crafts as well as architecture.

There are about 150 people currently dwelling within the village; it is an ideal place to observe their traditional daily activities from Sarawak's diverse tribes such as beadwork, wood and bamboo carvings, ‘Pua’ weaving and straw weaving. You will even get the chance to learn how to throw a Malay spinning top, shoot a Penan blowpipe or pick a tune on an Orang Ulu sape—a traditional lute that is sometimes called ‘sapek’, ‘sampek’ and ‘sampeh’. Towards the end of the tour, you will be treated to an amazing multicultural dance performance, where members of different tribes dress up in their traditional costumes; each, a dazzling swirl of colours and designs.
