Sarawak Cultural Village
Damai Beach Resort
It was Tuesday, 23 December 2014.
After a bowl of the famous (and delicious) mee kolok, we head towards Damai Beach, Waze or Google Map will be able to show you the way. Alternatively, follow the road signs.
Some information you should know. Take note of the cultural show time. You don't want to miss it.
So what can you do here?
You cannn... collect stamps from these houses:
|Rumah Bidayuh - it's bigger actually, at the back of this hut|
|Rumah Orang Ulu|
|Guess whose house?|
You can also find souvenirs in the houses (ranging from accessories, food & other trinkets) and if you come at the right time, some mini cultural shows.
|This one is in the Malay house|
Take your time and enjoy the beautiful scenery from the houses. We're at the feet of the majestic Mt. Santubong after all.
|This is the rumah Bidayuh|

And I'll let you discover yourself where this little delightful water feature is ;)
Hint: behind one of the houses
Fancy a night here? Check out the details below...
Remember to check your watch so you won't miss the cultural show. They won't let you go in too early though :(
I got in about 15 minutes before the show and got chased out. The staff made us wait outside for a while and line up before going in. Upon re-enter, I saw some balloons hanging on the corner wall. Guess someone forgot to hang it earlier & they didnt want audience to see. I still got front seat anyway :p
The show itself was good, better than the one in Sabah. Perhaps as good as the one in Cambodia Cultural Village. Although this one has no acting.

Guess who was the
unlucky audience selected for solo participation?
I can't dance, I suck at blow-piping. Needless to say, it was embarrassing! But a nice experience. I just wish I didn't have to do it in front of an auditorium-full of people.
Just outside the theater, there's a restaurant. We had our lunch there. Food was not bad. You might want to try the lunch set.

After lunch, we walked on the beach opposite the road before returning back to town for dessert! ;)
