Kuching - Sarawak Holiday

Enchanting, wild and far removed from the beaten track, Sarawak’s many attractions for the intrepid traveler include jungle treks and indigenous culture. 

Sarawak is the largest state in Malaysia, with a land mass that is nearly equal to the entire Malaysian Peninsula. Located on the western side of the island of Borneo, Sarawak offers what many consider to be the quintessential Borneo experience. Try local cuisine, learn about the area’s cultural history and explore numerous untamed pockets where it seems as if time has stood still for hundreds of years. 

Visit a rumah panjai (traditional longhouse) still inhabited by the indigenous Iban people. These warriors were once known as Borneo’s most fearsome headhunters, but visitors needn’t worry as the practice has now died out. Learn about their fascinating culture when you visit the Sarawak Cultural Village. This also hosts the popular Rainbow World Music Festival in July, featuring international and local musicians.

Sarawak is a paradise for trekkers. Explore the mountainous trails of the Kelabit Highlands or take the routes through dense mangroves in the Bako National Park. Discover the natural wonders of the Gunung Mulu National Park, which contains some of the largest caves in the world. Take a longboat ride along the river or try the Mulu Canopy Skywalk and walk through vines and ferns high above the forest floor.

Kuching is the state capital and a good place to base your travels, with flights from Kuala Lumpur landing in Kuching International Airport. It is advisable to take internal flights within Sarawak as well, as the roads are still largely undeveloped. 

Be sure to sample some traditional dishes during your stay. Umai, raw fish cured with lime and spices, and manok pansoh, chicken cooked in bamboo, are two of the most well-known local specialties. 

The hot and humid climate is a constant year-round, but you can expect more rainfall from November to February during the wet season. Come prepared for hot weather, untamed wilderness and an experience like you’ve never had before and your trip to Sarawak will be one that you will remember for life.

Q: Should I book a car while on holiday in Sarawak?

A: Why waste precious time waiting on public transportation when you could be behind the wheel of your very own rental car? Whether you're heading to Miri, Sibu or another big city, a car is one of the best ways to soak up the sights. If you plan to explore the region of Marudi District or even farther afield, it makes even more sense. For Cheap Car Hire in Sarawak, we've got you covered.

Q: Which airports can I fly in to for a holiday to Sarawak?

A: The following major airport terminals operate many of the flights to and from Sarawak:

Q: What are the most popular types of hotels for a holiday to Sarawak?

A: Most travellers book hotels in Sarawak. However, there are lots of other options. Hostels, guest houses and apartments are also readily available.

Q: What does a Sarawak holiday booking with Expedia include?

A: There are no limits. We have what you'd expect, like Sarawak hotels, flights and cars. We also have lots of activities and attractions to look at. Secure just one of these options or fill your schedule to the brim.

Q: What is the best way to save money on my holiday to Sarawak?

A: We'll let you in on a secret — it's with our package deals. By locking in your Flights, Hotels and Rental Car with a little help from Expedia, you'll score deals that you'll want to brag about. It's as easy as that. Not quite ready to select that hotel or car just yet? Don't worry. You'll be able to add them to an existing booking at any time and still enjoy access to terrific discounts. How does up to 42% off selected hotels sound?

Q: What are the best things to do in Sarawak?

A: If you're visiting Miri, there are tons of things to choose from. Crocodile Farm, Niah Caves and Co Co Dive definitely deserve a place on your travel itinerary.

Wong Nai Siong Garden, Lau King Howe Memorial Museum and Farley Sibu Mall are well worth taking a look at if Sibu is where you'll be spending most of your time.

And if your final destination is in Bintulu, we'd recommend exploring Taman Tumbina Bintulu, Similajau National Park and Tua Pek Kong.
