Wondering if it’s worth visiting Sarawak on your Malaysian adventure?

Sarawak is the biggest of the two Malaysian states located on the island of Borneo or East Malaysia, as it’s known within Malaysia. It’s the place to go to discover the best parts of Borneo. This is the natural environment and wildlife as well as the indigenous culture with longhouse stays and cultural immersion being accessible to tourists.

From the absolutely amazing UNESCO World Heritage listed Mulu National Park to the longhouses in the Kelabit Highlands to my favourite city in Malaysia, Kuching, there is so much to love about Sarawak.

I hate that it took me so long to explore this state so don’t make the same mistake! A trip here is like nowhere else in Malaysia and you need to experience it to really appreciate it.

In this episode, I’m discussing why you should visit Sarawak, how to get there, what to do once you’re there as well as how long to stay.

By the end of this episode, you’ll be booking your trip to Sarawak!
