Sarawak is Malaysia's largest state. It lies in East Malaysia and shares the island of Borneo with the eastern state of Sabah, the separate country of Brunei and the Indonesian provinces of Kalimantan.
Sarawak is the largest and, certainly in terms of visitors per square kilometer, least touristed state of Malaysia. Nearly as large as peninsular Malaysia, the interior is covered in a thicket of impenetrable jungle and mountains and the great majority of the population lives near the coast or along rivers leading to the sea.
Major touristic hotspots are the state capital Kuching and the nearby Bako National Park in the west of Sarawak. A must-see highlight is also Gunung Mulu National Park with its famous pinnacles in the far east of Sarawak.
Please note that we offer two(!) guides on Sarawak. This is our backpacker guide to Sarawak. We also feature the official guide by the Sarawak Tourism Board.
