Sarawak, Malaysia

Sarawak is one of the only two states of East Malaysia that is located in the Borneo region side of the country. Among the 13 states of Malaysia, Sarawak is the largest state with an area almost matching up to the Peninsular Malaysia. Sarawak is the second most diverse state in the whole of Malaysia. It consists of over 40 sub-ethnic group, six major ethnic groups, Iban, Chinese, Malay, Bidayuh, Melanau, and Orang Ulu, along with a few smaller ethnic groups like Kedayan, Javanese, Bugis, Murut, and Indian. Each of these groups have their own language but Malay and English are the official languages of the state. Its capital city, Kuching, is the biggest city and the economic centre of the state.

Sarawak is also known as the 'Land of the Hornbills' because it is home to eight out of 54 species of hornbills in the world with the Rhinoceros Hornbill being its state bird. Although Sarawak is in the same (Borneo) region as Sabah, people usually choose to travel to the latter instead because it is deemed more developed and well known whereas Sarawak is like a rough diamond that hasn't been fully discovered yet. However, the state has been marketed as 'the road less travelled', attracting more adventurous and curious crowd.

The following shows the residential property transactions in Sarawak over the last few years:

The Sarawak government is aiming to develop Kuching as a smart city by 2030 to promote the digital economy. The Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hassan claims that the Sarawak government has set aside RM1 billion to upgrade the telecommunications infrstructure and other infrastructure to establish good connectivity, as well as stimulating economic growth in the rural regions. Aside from that, he also said that the Sarawak government had allocated RM5 billion to upgrade the coastal roads and bridges, RM6 billion for the Second Trunk Road, RM2.8 billion for water supply and RM2.37 billion for the Rural Electrification Scheme.

Well maintained complex with a swimming pool that is huge and in the shape of a grand piano, keys and everything!

Another overpriced condo/apt in Been-to-Ulu.

Good central location. A lot of security around. The rooftop garden has good views of the city. Salt water pool is clean and big (but not very deep). Not much of a crowd at the pool or gym which is nice.

Best location for viewing flights landing. Very new commercial mall. Nice place for window shopping thought with only few shops opening. Econsave Hypermarket a place to do your final marketing.

Difficult to park to visit family member...not friendly security, better stay at nearby hotel

Near to Airport, secure and safe, sufficient parking space for each condo, swimming pool and many more advantages to live here. Good locality, good people live here.

Super jam place during dinner, the cars just simply park at roadside, and very hard to find a parking.

Extremely great place to fill an empty stomach. Clean, nice atmosphere and most importantly many good stalls selling Malaysian delicacies.

It was very innovative because it has something that no stores in Kuching has: self pluck vegetables. Although the design is simple, but it is very innovative. Plus Green Heights Shopping Mall is very convenient as the mall is situated at a residential area.
