Tour Description: 

Located approximately 30km from the city of Kuching, the Sarawak Cultural Village, also known as the ‘Living Museum’, is 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.
