Sarawak

Situated on the island of Borneo, the world’s third largest island, Sarawak is Malaysia’s largest state. Experience the magic of Sarawak starting in lively Kuching. Meaning “cat” in Malay, see the artefacts in one of Kuching’s museums including the Sarawak Museum, the Cat Museum, the Chinese History Museum or the Sarawak Textile Museum. Head to the historic Fort Margherita to view its Brooke militaria exhibits and well-known “laughing skulls”. Savour tantalising local cuisine and dishes made with Sarawak’s famous pepper. Shop for locally made pottery and other native handicrafts.

Walk through the jungle and glimpse at the rescued orangutans at the Semenggoh Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre. Embrace the stunning views and wildlife at Mount Santubong. The mountain is also home to the Sarawak Cultural Village, where visitors can meet indigenous people, and learn about their vibrant culture and traditions. Immerse in the rainforest and longhouse life at Annah Rais Longhouse. More nature awaits at Bako National Park, Gunung Gading National Park, and Sarawak’s many other national parks. Otherwise, soak in the sun and swim in the sea on tropical Damai Beach, or discover the Wind and Fairy Caves. A world of adventure.
