Sarawak Cultural Village spans across a 17-acre land to bring together all the major ethnic groups within the state.

 

Secluded in the foothills of Mount Santubong, the village is brimming with fascinating tales of Sarawak; featuring replicas of local houses and buildings as well as portraying a comprehensive narration of various cultures and rituals of the Sarawakian tribes.

Sarawak Cultural Village features seven major ethnic groups in Sarawak, namely Bidayuh, Iban, Orang Ulu, Chinese, Melanau, Malay, and Penan. Visitors are able to immerse themselves in the hands-on experience of a typical daily life of the tribes.

Promoted as one of the ‘Best Heritage Experience’ spots in Malaysia, the village provides a thorough insight into the culture, lifestyle, and history of the diverse tribes in the region. Apart from the uniquely interesting architecture one can find here, traditional food, dances, musical instruments, and various types of weaponries are also exhibited throughout the area. The highlight of this ‘living museum’ is its stunning multicultural performances that take place twice a day, performed by award-winning dancers and musicians at the village theatre. If you feel like trying something new, the village also offers you a chance to participate in crafting and agricultural activities such as beadwork making and paddy pounding.
