Mukah, the homeland of the Melanau full of cultural traditions

Mukah may feel like an off-the-beaten track destinaton to most tourist to Sarawak but this place is a cultural and foodie experience for some others.

From Sibu, you can take a boat along the Igan river, Sarawak to the town of Dalat and along the way you can see many floating houses along the man-made canal in Sungai Kut, Sarawak.

These are the settlement of the Melanau people. You can stay in the authentic Melanau village house built above the water.

You can also watch how the sago pellet processing and ‘kuih sepit’ wafer are made. There are alot of Mukah’s delicacies as well as Melanau’s handicraft at the local market for your memento.
