“See Sarawak in Half a Day” is the claim made by Sarawak Cultural Village, a unique award-winning living museum offering an excellent introduction to local cultures and lifestyles.
One of Malaysia’s best-known and most iconic cultural attractions, Sarawak Cultural Village is a unique award-winning living museum offering and exciting and informative introduction to local cultures and lifestyles. Nine authentic replica buildings represent every major ethnic group in Sarawak; Bidayuh, Iban and Orang Ulu longhouses, a Penan jungle settlement, a Melanau tall-house, a Malay town house, a Chinese farmhouse and pagoda. Each is staffed with members of their respective ethnic groups, in traditional costume, carrying out traditional activities. Every house has a “storyteller” who is an expert in describing and interpreting traditional cultures and lifestyles.
After touring the village, visitors can enjoy a multi-cultural dance performance in the village’s own theatre, or even take dance, music and craft lessons. There is also a good ethnic restaurant and a handicrafts shop on-site. Other attractions and amenities include; a Sulpture Garden; the Rainforest Music House, with traditional instruments and interactive music workshops; and the Dewan Legenda (Hall of Legends), a creative space complete with dance studio, library, information centre, costume gallery, lecture hall and creativity room.
