This village is the best of Kuching and a must-see place for all! It consist of houses built by each tribe in Sarawak. We will appreciate the culture of other people upon seeing the village.

This is one of the places of interest that is closer to town about half hour drive from town. The village is nestled between the South China Sea and a mountain. Cultural show is very informative with audience participation

This is well worth a trip. Visit houses built to represent the variety of houses found in the area and talk to people who tell you how they live and how they prepared food etc. Don’t miss the traditional dance show. It is awesome.

You can book online directly on their website but like the rest, just turn up and buy your tickets at the entrance. Skip the buffet lunch - just breeze through the village then find a sumptuous lunch in town :0).
