Gawai Dayak

Joyously celebrated in the Land of Hornbills, Gawai Dayak is an important annual harvest festival particularly for the Ibans and Dayaks of Sarawak. Celebrations are aplenty including a beauty pageant to choose the king and queen called “Keling” and “Kumang” Gawai. Winners are chosen based on the completeness of their traditional costumes and beauty.
