Self-catering holiday rentals in malaysia sarawak for your home stay
One of two states within the island of Borneo, Sarawak is a place full of magical rain forests like those found in the 'Gunung Mulu National Park', alongside ultra modern 21st century skylines and old, mysterious tribes and customs. Add in a fascinating geology and ecology, Sarawak is just made for the curious traveller. With two cities, one the more historical capital of Kuching and the other, Brunei, in the principality of Brunei, there's also as much sophisticated high life as any thrill seeker could wish for. It's also fairly easy to visit Sarawak, with visas granted on arrival to most people. Weather wise, Sarawak is tropical, with the rainiest months of the year from November to February. With temperatures between 27 degrees and 34 degrees, it's always hot and can be humid. Visit anytime, but if you're music lover, go in June, as Sarawak is host to the 'Rainforest world Music Festival' which is a brilliant, vibrant event. Or try a visit in April to see the curious but fun, 'Baleh- Kapit Raft' which is a traditional boat race up the Sarawak river between the, 'Orang Ulu' and 'Iban' native tribes, to see who can bring their jungle produce to market the quickest. Other things to see are the numerous and, sometimes very old, quirky and funny statues of cats. As Kuching, loosely translated, means 'Cat', the locals have always promoted Kuching as a city of cat lovers. However, for more usual expressions of worship, visit the Indian Mosque, which is absolutely stunning on the inside, or the modern 1950's Catherdral. With such a wide variety of attractions, Sarawak is an ideal place for all ages, and often attracts groups made up of friends and families.
