Sarawak Cultural Village wins another excellence award

THE Sarawak Cultural Village (SCV) has added another feather to its cap by winning an excellence award in the Best Cultural or Heritage Experience category in Expatriate Lifestyle magazine’s Best of Malaysia Travel Awards 2010.

SCV was voted the winner by the magazine’s readers and was the sole recipient from Sarawak among the 74 award winners in 16 categories. The awards were presented in Kuala Lumpur earlier this month.

”We are honoured and privileged to win this award. It will be an encouragement for SCV to continue our good work and remain a key player in the state’s tourism industry,” SCV general manager Jane Lian Labang said at a ceremony to hand over the award to Assistant Tourism and Heritage Minister Datuk Talib Zulpilip yesterday.

Jane said SCV’s blueprint of success focused on creativity, innovation and human resource training to continually improve its visitor experience.

In line with this, she said SCV would offer new attractions next year for visitors to enjoy. These include an arts learning centre called Persada Ilmu with a dance studio, library, information centre, costume gallery and lecture hall; the Persada Alam tea garden where visitors can taste different varieties of local tea while being entertained by interactive performances; and the Rainforest World Music Gallery featuring musical instruments from around the world and live performances by SCV’s resident band Tuku Kame.

There will also be a new Bidayuh longhouse, complete with new “baruk” (meeting hall), which can offer accommodation for more guests under SCV’s village stay programme.
