Sarawak Cultural Village, Kuching Reviews - Write a Review
A true "living museum" and fantastic place to experience the local cultures and traditional communities of the area. Meet the people, see how they live here and share in some of their activities, including the opportunity to see their traditional dance styles. Highly recommended if you are looking for a true taste of culture while in Malaysia. If my review was helpful to you, please give me a thumbs up 👍🏼 Thanks!
Nor worth ur money, in my last visit.. Cuma beberapa staff saja yang nampak bekerja dengan happy.. Credit to penyambut pintu hadapan, rumah Parang (best n detail explanation by him about what he knows in sarawak tribes), rumah Cina dan rumah Melayu.. Selain tu.. Tolong perbaiki greeting dan layanan.. Still not worth ur money
Be prepared to spend half a day here at the cultural village! There is so much to see. This is a living museum, yes with living people! A great place, to experience and learn about the local cultures and lifestyles. There are actual replica buildings of the different ethnic groups in Sarawak, you can expect to see long house, tall house and a farm house. In these houses you will find members of the different ethnic groups sharing with you about their culture. Don't miss out on the cultural performance, not to be missed! After a day of exploring you can relax and dine by the beach, absolutely stunning.
It is a perfect place for the people who want to know and learn about sarawak culture. The only cultural village in Malaysia that offers unique cultural performance, traditional ethnic houses, dance, games, food, traditional music instrument, hunting method and the way of the ethnic live since their ancestors long time ago. But it's takes you the whole day to explore. So be well prepared.
Things are well maintained there, and there's a lot to explore. The staff are also nice. The bridges and stairs are both worth trying. The food service inside the restaurant can be improved though.
