1-2 June annually
Join the Dayaks Sarawak, Borneo’s majority ethnic race as they celebrate their Gawai Dayak, the Harvest Festival from 1st to 2nd June annually. But the best time to be there is a day or two before the festival at the various longhouses. This is when you will truly experience the preparation and the merry making. Learn how to dance the “ngajat”, play the brass gongs, cook bamboo chicken, drink the potent rice wine and dress up as an Iban warrior. Merry making starts from sunset to sunrise.
