Eat: Hunt For Food
You can’t go to Sarawak and not have tried these 2 delicacies.
Start your food journey with a bowl of Sarawak Laksa. Sarawak Laksa is a dish of vermicelli rice noodles cooked in a shrimp base broth. This broth has a Sarawakian flair to it – having a Sarawak influence. It is cooked with Sambal belacan, tamarind, galangal, lemongrass and thickened with coconut milk. Sounds like a standard laksa, but oh-so-different.

Then there is the Sarawak Kolo Mee. This is a simple bowl of springy noodles with char siew slices and minced pork. There are 2 variations – the original and the BBQ flavour. It’s a very simple dish but it’s a bowl packed full of flavour. It will keep you coming back for more.
Explore & Discover The Magical Kuching
Explore the magical fairy caves in Kuching. It is an impressive show cave – with plants growing within the caves. The combination of light, water and the guano-enriched soil makes it conducive for the growth of flora. It is quite a magical sight to see a whole ecosystem in a cave. The Bak national park also boasts great views of flora and fauna. Or a short hike at Santubong will give you some breathtaking views.
