Day 2Sarawak Cultural Village

After breakfast depart for a half day tour of Sarawak cultural village. This award-winning living museum showcases Sarawak’s unique and diverse cultures in an accessible, visitor-friendly setting just 35 minutes from Kuching.

On a sprawling 17-acre site just a short walk from the nearby resort hotels, there are replica buildings representing every major ethnic group in Sarawak; Bidayuh, Iban and Orang Ulu longhouses, a Penan jungle settlement, a Melanau tall-house, a Malay town house with adjacent top -spinning court, a Chinese farm House and a Chinese pagoda. All the buildings are staffed with members of the various ethnic groups, in traditional costume, carrying out traditional activities. These include wood and bamboo carving, beadwork, weaving, sago-making, sugar-cane crushing, pepper-growing and the preparation of bird’s nests. Guests can learn how to throw a Malay spinning top, shoot a Penan blowpipe or pick out a tune on an Orang Ulu sape. Each building has a “storyteller” who is expert in describing and interpreting traditional cultures and lifestyles. Staff will happily pose with you for photos.

After touring the village, you can enjoy a multi-cultural dance performance in the village’s own theatre. After the tour transfer to your hotel. The rest of the day is free at leisure.

BREAKFAST

Day 3Semeggoh Nature Reserve - Depart Kuching

Today you will be driven for about 30 minutes to Semeggoh Nature Reserve, home to rehabilitated semi-wild orangutans and their babies.

The orangutans spend most of their time roaming the forest but frequently come back to the feeding platform for a free meal. If it is the fruiting season in the forest, some or even all of them may not come to feed. This in itself is a good sign and another step on the way to full rehabilitation.

The best time to visit Semenggoh is during the feeding session when there is a good chance of seeing the orangutans.

After the tour return to Kuching and transfer to the airport.
