It is all Sarawakian cultures in one huge compound. You get to experience the different lifestyle of the various locals/tribe living their ordinary life - their house, their food, their utensil etc

Restaurants and tours are overwhelming cheap for foreign tourists but not the cultural village (especially with foreigners charged twice as much as Malaysians).

Definitely worth a visit. Nice ride from Kuching, near the beach area. A collection of lodges from several different tribal cultures. Not only is the architecture different, but also the food, culture, etc. Demonstrations included music, dance, fabric-making, food preparation. You MUST try the blow...More

A really good cultural experience, especially the cultural show which runs twice a day. Can be a bit difficult to get to, but you can get a grab from the city and get the driver to pickup you up again. Otherwise it can be hard...More
