If you want experience the Sarawak culture houses and dances, do come here. The place is nice and the cultural show is fun and entertaining. You can learn how the local lives and how their houses looks like in just few hour. Good to spend at least 4 hour here.

This is a very worthwhile place to visit. Take time to walk around and see the houses before going to the show. Doesn't matter what language you speak the show is music and dance. Beautiful national costume. Funny in parts but very entertaining. Great place to visit for few hours.

Another interesting, intriguing, and exciting place to visit is the Cultural Village, situated near Santubong and Damai beach. It will take around 40 minutes from Kuching centre to reach there . Here we can visit and see the diverse culture of Sarawak and its people. Visitors will be able to purchase items and goods related to Sarawak and its people... More

I had read a lot about the cultural village before I went, and did not have high hopes - I was expecting a really touristy place without much cultural information. But I was very pleasantly surprised! I took a shuttle bus from the Grand Margherita Hotel, which was very easy. The village itself is beautifully laid out around a lake... More

Do not miss the show that is put on twice daily. There are various longhouses built in the styles of various tribal groups plus a few other buildings. You can also try shooting blow darts. There is a shuttle service from the Grand Margherita hotel in Kuching.
