Land of the Hornbills
Sarawak, one of two Malaysian states on the island of Borneo, is known for its geographical diversity. Visitors come to hike across the state's national parks, areas of protected natural diversity that include interesting rock and cave formations, as well as plentiful native plant and animal life (including the proboscis monkey, only found on the island). The landscape features everything from virgin coastal forest to cloud-covered highlands. Urban areas offer cultural sites related to the diverse communities that have settled in the state from across continental Asia. Rural communities here reveal the separateness of the island from mainstream Malaysian culture with idiosyncratic ceremonies, architecture, and local cuisines.
