OVERVIEW OF THE LOCATION

This 3-Day, 2-Night package is perfect for travellers looking to experience a combination of both the rustic and urban-scapes of Kuching, Sarawak!

Visit the award-winning Sarawak Cultural Village to immerse oneself in Sarawak’s diverse culture through this “living museum” sprawled on a 17-acre site where visitors will have the opportunity to experience how native tribes live their day-to-day lives, and be entertained by live traditional performances. Marvel at limestone formations of stalactites and stalagmites at the awe-inspiring Fairy and Wind Caves. The ethereal caves present an almost otherworldly experience to all who visit with its rich folklore belief by native Taoists. Pay a visit to the wild man himself at the Semenggoh Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre and observe Orang Utans frolic in the comfort of an environment that mimics their natural habitat as they are nurtured to health and readapt to the jungle life. 

After all that time spent in the “wild”, a City Tour is a fantastic way to end the trip! Visit must-see attractions of this historically vibrant city such as the Mascot of Kuching aptly represented by a giant cat statue at Padungan, China Town, Tua Tek Kong Temple, the Astana, the old Colonial Law Courthouse, the Clocktower, the granite obelisk, and a visit to the Urang Sarawak Museum to brush up on some history lessons.

This all-in-one package will amuse history buffs and introduce facts about Sarawak you may not have known through an engaging and eye-opening experience.
