The Melanaus are amongst the earliest inhabitants of Sarawak with a bloodline that traces back to the Brunei Sultanate. Other than their regal ancestry, they are also known for their seafaring skills. Every April, the town takes on a festive atmosphere as the Kaul Festival kicks off with traditional rites and cultural shows, games and foods.
From fireflies that look like fairy lights on a Christmas tree to a perfectly restored traditional Melanau house – Lamin Dana - that offers the quintessential homestay experience. And don't forget to try out the wide variety of Melanau traditional dishes such as the “umai” - Sarawak's minced version of the sashimi.
From the sun, wind and food to the cultural experience of a lifetime, Mukah is where you go when you want to soak it all up.
