The restaurant there serves decent local food. Don't miss their evening show as they nicely summarize the entire experience. Their activities and replica homes are also nice points of interest to visit so don't rush off after visiting each point of interest. However, do bring...More

Really interesting place to visit and the dance show is incredible. However I really didn’t like that in every house there was someone, sometimes multiple people trying to sell things, it was very irritating and distracted from the houses themselves!

It is easy to get a grab car / my car from Kuching town to SCV. However, it could be tricky if you are leaving from SCV. You may have to pre-arrange with the grab car driver. To me, it will be easy access if you rent a car.
