A recommended visit for tourists and locals who want to know more about the culture and the various races in Sarawak. Various displays all around the village, including the making of local snacks and crafts. Catch the cultural performances/dances at 11AM and 4PM. Ideal for a half-day visit.

Spent the whole day in here enjoying the place and it's beautiful too! There are 2 slots of cultural performances. 11 am and another one will be at 4 pm. After an exciting journey in there, visitors... More

We took a Grab taxi (31RM from Kuching CBD) to SCV and spent @5 hours in the village, and could have stayed longer. They give senior discounts. You get a "passport" to get stamps on the long houses you visit, which also had information about each tribe being presented. The cultural show (@1 hour) was great; the performers/artists came from... More

We just went this afternoon, the road to go there is well maintained. The place itself is also very informative ( though it would be better if you went with a tour guide ) and has a lot to offer in regards to the different tribes in sarawak from the type of food and rituals. My children loved the cultural... More

Representative architecture and artifacts for the cultures of Sarawak are laid out beneath the most impressive mountain peak near Kuching. It's beautiful to look at and there are interpretive programs to participate in. We learned to play a traditional stringed instrument and had excellent traditional Malay food in the onsite restaurant. Highly recommend to visit for the whole day.

Spent a couple of hours here - took a Grab taxi there and caught the shuttle bus back (leaves at the entrance, but do check the times as there's only a few a day). The centre was a better quality attraction than I was expecting. Really liked the little passport you take to each house - was upset that a... More

I had an excellent walk round this village to watch and sample indigenous Indians sell and show you their goods. Well worth a visit.
