Kuching is the most populous city in Sarawak. Also known as 'Cat City' because 'Kuching' means 'Cat'. The population of Sarawak is comprised of Malays, Chinese, Indians, Eurasians and a number of native Dayak tribes like the Iban, Bidayuh, Melanau, Penan, Kedayan and Orang Ulu. The presence of these tribal people makes Sarawak a unique state, as each tribe has its own culture, language, food and traditions that are not found in other parts of Malaysia.
