around April annually
This “Thanksgiving Beach Festival” centres around one of Borneo Sarawak’s indigenous race – the Melanaus. Happening in Mukah, a three-hour ride from Sibu the road takes you through bumpy hilly terrain amidst a sea of green. With the event showcasing their rich seafaring tradition and exotic culture, visitors will find plenty to see, do and sample. Join in the games and try the Melanau version of the sushi and a host of other exotic foods. And don’t forget to stay at the Lamin Dana, a boutique home stay experience.
