Sarawak has much to offer visitors. Firstly it is one of the most developed regions of the island of Borneo, the world third largest island, which is shared by Malaysia, Brunei and Indonesia. As Malaysia's largest State, it makes up some 37.5 per cent of the country's total area. Home to at least 27 ethnic groups; each with its own distinct language, culture and lifestyle, Sarawak is a melting pot for racial-integration. Endowed with the world's richest and most diverse ecosystems, Sarawak's ancient rainforest canopies possessed the world's largest flower, the Rafflesia, and rare species of plant life including pitcher plants and orchids. It is also home to the orangutan and proboscis monkey.

The acronym CAN explains what Sarawak is all about Culture, Adventure and Nature. From modern culture in the Cities to the archaic in rural Sarawak, the people celebrate traditional Chinese and Malay religious festivals and rituals and a variety of Dayak Gawai ceremonies. The State rich heritage extends from the jungle wilderness to the pristine underwater world of untouched coral reefs--a potpourri of experiences appreciated by travelers from all over the world. Heading into the Sarawak's hinterland, the heartbeat picks up as a fascinating and enchanting world unravels.
