Mangrove Cruise Combo
Mangrove Cruise + Sarawak Cultural Village
Pick up from your hotel and enjoy the scenic 45 minutes drive towards Damai Peninsular for a Mangrove Wildlife Cruise at the Kuching Wetlands National Park (designated a wetland of international importance under the RAMSAR Convention in 2005). We explore the river estuaries at the Park. The mangrove shoreline offers sightings of many exciting wildlife including proboscis monkeys, long tailed macaque monkeys, silver-leaf monkeys and monitor lizards. A range of bird life, including kingfishers, white-bellied sea eagles and other shore birds can also be found there. If you are lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of the illusive Irrawaddy Dolphins as they frolic around the estuaries in the morning hours or near sunset. Please note that these animals are wild and therefore, there is no guarantee that visitors will see them. Lunch at local restaurant. See Sarawak in one sunny day. This is the basic concept of Sarawak Cultural Village, where the 48,000 square miles of Malaysia's most majestic State are condensed into just 17 acres. One leisurely stroll opens seven homes to the visitor, seven cultures, including the famous longhouses of Borneo. Visit the Sarawak Cultural Village, nestled in the serene foothills of Mount Santubong about 30 minutes from the city. Popularly known as SCV, the Village is a “living museum” showcasing the seven major ethnic races of Sarawak; Iban, Bidayuh, Penan, Orang Ulu, Melanau, Malay and Chinese. Each ‘house’ is an exact replica of traditional dwellings down to the type of wood, landscaping, carvings etc. of the various communities. Visit the houses to learn their cultures and traditions. Participate in activities including craft making and preparing their various ethnic goodies. There are daily music and dance performances at the Village Theatre in the mornings and afternoons. Transfer back to your hotel after the tour.
