“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

We visited here with our children. What a fantastic experience. Great to see the different people groups, learn some of their history and play some of their games. Very hands on so children were entertained while learning all about the people and their societies.

“Must visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

Sarawak has a long and rich culture. The Cultural Village lets you experience a little of it all in one place. Very well run and interesting. Worth your time.

“Unexpected good day out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

I'll be honest - I expected to find this boring and didnt want to go. But I was wrong - I really enjoyed it. It was informative and good fun. Got to have a go at blow darts and go in various styles of houses. The show at the end was good and funny also. The food at the on site restaurant/cafe was cheap and good quality.

The kids I saw loved it. Although some of the steps in the houses and bridges were a bit scary and very steep.

“Not as impressive but high entrance fee.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014 via mobile

The charge is rm60 per pax no matter you are malaysian or foreigner. Unless you are sarawakian or student, who entitled for discounted rate of rm30 and rm15 respectively.

I do expect more from this cultural village but ended up rather disappointed. However,there is a resort opposite of cultural village. You will see a piece of great sea with relatively strong wave! Natural is always the most awesome. It somehow slightly cure or compensate my little disappointed heart..lol..
