If you are planning to visit Sarawak soon for leisure and sightseeing purposes, Sarawak Cultural Village (SCV) should not be missed. [tag]Sarawak Cultural Village[/tag] is located on the foothills of Mount Santubong, which is about 35 km away from Kuching.
Previously, I had a free two nights stay at Holiday Inn Damai Beach and SCV is only half a mile away from the hotel. I commuted to SCV using the hotel’s free shuttle service (although I should mention the walking distance is really quite short). I may have to split this visit into 3 posts because there are altogether 51 photos to show!
At SCV, One will get to experience the lifestyle, culture and witness the heritage of the major ethnic groups in Sarawak. Despite the expensive RM60 entrance fee, SCV remains as one of my most memorable visits in [tag]Sarawak[/tag] and I really recommend it to anyone who can afford the tickets.
I saw a few foreigners who were turned away by the ticket price. After I completed the tour, I was pretty sure their decision was a mistake. Because, the ticket price is really worth it in exchange for a great experience. Besides, the price surely wouldn’t be a problem to them if converted into their native currency.
The signboard actually has the words “Selamat Datang Ke Kampung Budaya Sarawak”. But the early sun was so bright, it caused some reflection so you won’t really notice it in the photo. Or maybe it’s because my skills just sucked, lol.
SL and I were the first visitors to arrive at SCV that morning at 8.45am, we were quite excited about the trip really. For your information, SCV’s opening hours is from 9am to 5.15pm daily. When you’re at the entrance feel free to marvel at the wonderful rocks, which is actually already part of SCV’s attaction – a modern stone Sculpture Park. That’s me in the background (notice pointing arrow) waiting for the ticketing girl to come, lol.
