Sarawak, known as Land of the Hornbills, is an amazing place where you can experience the best of “old world charm” with “new world convenience.” Sarawak was once known hundreds of years ago for its fierce headhunting tradition (which is no longer practiced today). Today, it is rapidly gaining ground as a place where Business Meets Adventure. Sarawak is the largest State of Malaysia’s 13 States, which covers an area of 125,000 sq. km, approximately the size of Greece. The steep interior terrain, luxuriant with tropical rainforests, gives birth to mighty rivers. The population is 2.6 million people, approximately 10 percent of Malaysia’s population. From towering mountains to underwater diving treasures, Sarawak has it all. It is a place rich in natural resources (timber, oil, gas among them), tens of thousands of species of flora and fauna, and a harmonious multi-cultural, multi-racial community population of 28 different ethnic groups.

Kuching is the State’s capital city to more than 600,000 people. It is nestled on the river banks of the Sarawak River, and is well known for combining modern development with the rustic old-world charm of a bygone era. Kuching is a vibrant destination that offers a wide range of classy accommodation, facilities, and services. Whether you are seeking relaxation, immersion into nature, amazing cultural experiences, or breath-taking adventure, Kuching has something for everyone.
