We had an awesome day. My daughter and I were lucky to be the only ones on tour as I guess the country has only started opening up after 2 and a half years of lockdown from foreign visitors. Our guide, Alex Wee, was a walking encyclopaedia who knew everything about the flora and fauna, history and the various tribes of Sarawak. We learned so much about the orangutans and we were fortunate enough to see 5 of them, including a baby! Although artificially created for tourists, the Sarawak Cultural Village was a great way to learn about the different tribes of Sarawak and everyone at the park was so friendly and genuinely eager to show you their culture and heritage. 2 nice ladies took the time to play with and teach my daughter how to play congkak, the traditional Malay game. I would thoroughly recommend Mangunatip Holidays and hope you’ll be lucky enough to get Alex as your guide.
