Wonder how you can get the most out of Sarawak? Here’s a sample itinerary of what incentive groups can look forward to in the scenic wildlife sanctuary.
Upon arrival at the Kuching International Airport, you will be greeted by a group of Musical Cats before proceeding to Pullman Kuching for your check-in. As the evening approaches, prepare to take a Journey to the Mighty Yellow Streak aboard the Sarawak River Cruise.
A leisurely sunset cruise takes you along the Sarawak River, sailing past historical landmarks and catching a glimpse of all aspects of traditional life by the river and city. As the sun sets, enjoy the calming breeze and the sweet sound of the Sape – a traditional Orang Ulu musical instrument. As the boat docks at the Kuching Waterfront, relive the days of the British Empire with The White Rajah Theme Dinner Party on the banks of the Sarawak River. Experience a classic British dinner party at one of Kuching’s Brooke-period buildings, accompanied by an old-style brass band and performances from that era. Socialise and dance the night away under the boughs of lush trees on a perfectly-manicured lawn.
On the second day, after checking-out of the hotel, take a journey to Meet Sarawak’s Man of the Forest at the Semenggoh Wildlife Centre. This amazing wildlife rehabilitation centre strives to rehabilitate injured or orphaned wild animals taken out of jungles all over Sarawak. Next, be On the Prowl in Cat City and explore the charm and warmth of Kuching and take in the sights of newly-developed meeting venues and accommodation facilities, ideal for your next visit! We make a quick stop-over at the Kuching Waterfront Lodge to savour famous local delicacies such as the Sarawak Laksa (Spicy Noodle Soup), Kek Lapis Sarawak (Layer Cake), Kolo Mee (Dry Noodles with Meat), Manok Pansuh (Bamboo Chicken) and Midin (Jungle Fern). Take some time off to look for unique handicrafts and antiques along the Kuching Waterfront Main Bazaar – one of the oldest and busiest streets in Kuching, where trading took place since the era of James Brooke, the White Rajah.
Our next stop takes us to Damai Beach Resort, located just outside Kuching near the legendary Mount Santubong, where guests will take part in Cook Up a Storm, a group challenge to prepare Sarawak-style dishes from the village, be it an Iban, Bidayuh, Orang Ulu or local fusion recipe. Each team will be guided through the paces of creating a culinary masterpiece. In the evening, guests will proceed to Permai Rainforest Resort for a themed BBQ dinner, The Survivor- Sarawak Style. Set within an eco-resort built between rainforest and sea, experience a tribal procession and welcoming ceremony by the tribal chief before the feast begins.
After an adventure in Borneo, check out from Damai Beach Resort and depart for Kuching International Airport for your flight out.
