This kind of vista holds a rather eerie feeling when you are out by yourself, yet when you consume it with every senses you have, it will bewitch you to return and stay.

Being the largest state of Malaysia, it holds abundance of histories, ethnics and biodiversity. With an equatorial climate, it helps to nurture Sarawak’s tropical rainforest, home to unique flora and fauna, along with intriguing people living side by side.
