Sarawak

Hike through the dense jungle, learn about the indigenous culture and visit the sophisticated state capital in this tropical getaway.

The largest state in Malaysia, Sarawak, has a varied terrain with a bustling city, sleepy villages and unspoiled jungle terrain. Get a glimpse of the country’s past in tropical forests and communes while the main city presents a colonial and modern-day side of Malaysia.   

For a sense of the local culture, travel to the state capital of Kuching. Capture photos of the scenic riverside promenade and visit Chinese temples. Sample the local cuisine, which generally features umai raw fish with lime and spices. Another popular dish is manok pansoh, which consists of chicken cooked in bamboo.

Explore the coastal landmarks in the northern outskirts of the city at places such as Damai Beach. Browse the stores in the modern CityONE Megamall and Boulevard Shopping Mall.

Opt for a change of pace with a trip to the countryside, where you’ll find rumah panjai traditional longhouses in which the indigenous Iban people still live today. Visit the Sarawak Cultural Village to learn about this civilization, which was once renowned for its headhunters, although the practice no longer takes place.

Bring your family on picturesque trails bending around the peaks of the Kelabit Highlands. Spend time in Bako National Park and take photos of the scenic mangroves. Make sure to bring sufficient water for the year-round hot and humid weather. The wet season runs from December through February.

On the northern side of the state is the vast Gunung Mulu National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site containing striking pinnacles and fascinating caves. After walking through a rainforest, tread carefully along the Mulu Canopy Skywalk where you’ll be traversing along the tops of the trees.

Find the region on the northwestern part of Borneo. Fly to Kuching International Airport and get around the area via internal flights, as roads are often not in the best condition. 

Tropical national parks, indigenous villages and a modern city with charming sights make up the vast state of Sarawak.
