Day 14: Sarawak Cultural Village and Kuching City

In the morning, we began by going to the Sarawak Cultural Village after breakfast. It took a hour on the bus and we listened the information about the village and Kuching city from our guide. He explained many things about Kuching such as China town, old buildings, population, crocodiles, and the South China Sea. After we arrived, the native people perform the welcome dance for us. As we visited each tribal house, we heard different music, observed how they lived, and tasted a lot of traditional food. It’s really good!!! After we visited all the houses, we went to the theater to watch their traditional dance and performance. According to this morning, I learned a lot of different culture of different clan and I really enjoyed it. Also it would help us more sciential and knowledgeability. In the afternoon, we returned back to Kuching city. Since there was a loud thunderstorm right over us, we went back to hotel until 5pm. After that, we walked to wharf to take a boat cruise to see the city sights from the river! Also we had a roof top sea food dinner in the evening, where we got to order our own crabs, lobsters, bamboo clams, and whole fish!
