Sarawak, Malaysia

Sarawak is one of two states located in East Malaysia within the Borneo region. Of Malaysia's 13 states, Sarawak is the largest, with its area nearly matching that of Peninsular Malaysia. Sarawak is the second most diverse state in Malaysia, home to over 40 sub-ethnic groups, including six major ethnic groups - Iban, Chinese, Malay, Bidayuh, Melanau, and Orang Ulu - and several smaller ones such as Kedayan, Javanese, Bugis, Murut, and Indian. While each group has its own distinct language, Malay and English serve as the state's official languages. The capital and economic hub of Sarawak is Kuching.

Frequently referred to as the "Land of the Hornbills" Sarawak hosts eight of the 54 known species of hornbills worldwide, with the Rhinoceros Hornbill recognized as the state bird. Although Sarawak shares the Borneo region with Sabah, tourists often choose the latter due to its perceived greater development and recognition. However, Sarawak, likened to a rough diamond awaiting full discovery, markets itself as "the road less traveled" thus attracting the adventurous and curious.

The Sarawak government's ambitious plans aim to develop Kuching into a smart city by 2030 to boost the digital economy. Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hassan announced that the Sarawak government has earmarked RM1 billion for upgrading the telecommunications infrastructure and other facilities to establish robust connectivity and stimulate economic growth in rural areas. Additionally, the government has allocated RM5 billion for coastal roads and bridges upgrades, RM6 billion for the Second Trunk Road, RM2.8 billion for water supply improvements, and RM2.37 billion for the Rural Electrification Scheme.
