This tour is available in two options – coach and private. The private option offers you greater flexibility and you can spend as much or as little time at any of the places that you visit. Unlike the tight schedules of coach tours, the private option allows you to do the tour at your own pace.
You will be picked up from your hotel in Kuching and taken in a coach/ private vehicle for a tour to explore the Malaysian cultural diversity at the Sarawak Cultural Village.
A scenic drive of about 45 minutes through the picturesque Kuching countryside brings you to the Sarawak Cultural Village, a wonderful microcosm of the state's rich and colourful cultural diversity. The village is built at the foot of the legendary Mount Santubong in a beautiful landscape setting. Seven ethnic houses are replicated to provide visitors a glimpse into the varied culture of the land. From the Bidayuh round huts, the Iban longhouse to the stilt-houses of the Melanaus, each ethnic house is unique. While touring the Village you can get an insight into traditional activities of the past such as tattooing, blow-pipe making, weaving of the "pua kumbu" and top spinning.
The rich cultural heritage in Malaysia, presented in the form of dances and music by various ethnic groups, is one of the highlights of the visit. The grand cultural show which lasts about one hour is performed in the Village theatre. Take delight in jiving away to the traditional Malay beats during the lively cultural performances.
At the end of the tour, you will be dropped back at your hotel in Kuching.
