Welcome to the land of the hornbills! Sarawak is located on the island of Borneo, the third largest island in the world, north of the Equator. With its beautiful blue skies and tropical breezes you can bathe in the sandy beaches and palm-fringed state of Sarawak. With a pleasant tropical rainforest climate, Kuching the capital of the state of Sarawak, is Borneo's most stylish and sophisticated city. Its many museums and impressive planetarium will enthral even the tiniest travellers. Visitors can also grab a snack from the many stalls on the bustling waterfront, or visit the absolutely massive Kubah Ria market, which is an electric experience for shoppers, vendors, and observers. Within Kuching itself, the bustling streets – some very modern, others with a colonial vibe – amply reward visitors with a penchant for aimless ambling. Click here for video link: (
