Welcome to Sarawak, a land of rich cultural diversity and breathtaking natural beauty. Located on the northwest coast of Borneo, Sarawak welcomes travelers with its fascinating blend of indigenous traditions, modern amenities, and stunning landscapes. From the bustling streets of Kuching to the remote jungles of Gunung Mulu National Park, Sarawak offers a wealth of experiences waiting to be explored. Join us as we embark on a journey to uncover the wonders of this enchanting Malaysian state.

Sarawak boasts a rich and diverse history that spans centuries. In its “modern history”, the Brooke family, also known as the White Rajahs, played an important role in shaping the state's destiny. Alongside indigenous cultures and influences from Chinese, Malay, and other communities, the Brooke dynasty left an incredible mark on Sarawak's heritage, governance, and society. Sarawak's cultural diversity is celebrated in its vibrant festivals, such as the renowned Rainforest World Music Festival held annually in Kuching. The state's natural beauty is another draw for visitors. From the ancient rainforests of Gunung Mulu National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, to the pristine beaches of Damai and the rugged peaks of Mount Santubong, Sarawak offers a wealth of outdoor adventures for nature enthusiasts. The iconic longhouses of the indigenous communities provide a glimpse into traditional Sarawakian life, while the bustling markets and culinary scene in Kuching offer a taste of the state's vibrant culture.

Despite its modern developments, Sarawak remains deeply connected to its roots. Efforts to preserve traditional customs and protect the environment are ongoing, ensuring that future generations can continue to appreciate Sarawak's unique heritage and natural wonders. In Sarawak, every step is a journey through history and nature, where the echoes of the past blend seamlessly with the beauty of the present. Join us as we uncover the hidden treasures of Sarawak, where each discovery is a testament to the enduring allure of Malaysia's largest state. Explore Kuching, Gunung Mulu, and beyond with our customizable private tours, offering an authentic and unforgettable experience of Sarawak's wonders.

Kuching, the capital of Sarawak, is the starting point of most tours in Sarawak. No other city in Malaysia has such a romantic and unlikely history. Like all towns and cities in Borneo, the focal point of Kuching and the reason for its existence is the river. Hiring a sampan to meander slowly up and down the Sarawak River is the best way to get your first impression of Kuching. From the river you will see picturesque Malay villages (kampungs), a golden-domed mosque, a Victorian fort, a whole street of 19th century Chinese shophouses and an imposing wooden-roofed palace, all set against a background of distant mountains. Try local delicacies such as deer meat and jungle fern, drink a glass or two of tuak (local rice wine), or feast on a vast array of seafood dishes.


Though Bako National Park is one of Sarawak’s smallest parks, it is one of the most interesting and diverse, thanks to 7 distinct plant ecosystems in an area smaller than Manhattan Island. Bako is most famous for its iconic primate species, the bizarre Proboscis Monkey, found only in Borneo, and the shy yet charming Silvery Langur.


Gunung Mulu is Sarawak’s largest national park, and also Malaysia’s first World Heritage Area. It is most famous for its unbelievable limestone cave systems, including the world’s largest natural chamber (the Sarawak Chamber), the world’s largest cave passage (Deer Cave) and the longest cave in Southeast Asia (Clearwater Cave). The park’s main attractions are the four show caves, all readily accessible by wooden walkways and paths.


Sibu is the largest port and commercial centre in the Rejang Basin and the gateway to Central Sarawak. Sibu is a thriving modern town with a vibrant centre and a bustling, crowded waterfront. To visitors, Sibu feels more down-to-earth than relaxed Kuching. Sibu is the ideal jumping-off point for exploring the whole Rejang Basin, from the coastal town of Mukah to the furthest reaches of the Upper Rejang, over 600km upriver.


One of Malaysia’s best-known and most iconic cultural attractions, Sarawak Cultural Village is a unique awardwinning living museum offering an 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. After touring the village, visitors can enjoy a multi-cultural dance performance in the village’s own theatre. 


 For over 30 years, Semenggoh’s staff trained young orangutans, who had been orphaned or rescued from captivity, how to survive in the wild. The success of this programme has left the surrounding area with a thriving population of healthy orangutans, who are now breeding in the wild. They spend most of their time roaming the forest but frequently come back to the Centre for a free meal and can be viewed at feeding times.
