Sarawak is a state of Malaysia. Being the largest among 13 other states with the size almost equal to West Malaysia, Sarawak is located in northwest Borneo and is bordered by the Malaysian state of Sabah to the northeast.

Sarawak makes access to Borneo’s natural wonders and cultural riches a breeze. From Kuching, the island’s most dynamic city, pristine rain forests where you can spot orangutans, proboscis monkeys, crocodiles and the world’s largest flower, the Rafflesia can be visited on day trips, with time in the evening for a tasty meal and a drink by the waterfront. More adventurous travellers can take a ‘flying coffin’ riverboat up the ‘Amazon of Borneo’, the Batang Rejang, on their way east to hike from longhouse to longhouse in the cool environs of the Kelabit Highlands, or to the spectacular bat caves and extraordinary rock formations of Gunung Mulu National Park. For the best chance of seeing an orangutan in the wild, venture to the Batang Ai region. Everywhere you go, you’ll encounter the warmth, unforced friendliness and sense of humour that make the people of Malaysia’s most culturally diverse state such delightful hosts.

SPECIAL NOTE – We thank all who apply and advise that only those selected for further consideration will be contacted.
