BBC Series Films in Sarawak

Recently, the popular BBC Series, Top Gear, completed their filming assignment in Sarawak’s mountainous Northern Region for its upcoming season.

With Sarawak’s many unique attractions, such as their national parks, pristine rainforests, waterfalls and cave systems, as well as the unique cultural settings portraying local native lifestyles and food, requests from production houses have been very encouraging.

The Sarawak Tourism Board (STB) is pleased to assist local and international production houses in filming series in Sarawak.

STB facilitates an average of 20 to 25 filming series annually, advising production houses looking for interesting locations to film and facilitating permits for that purpose.

Sarawak has hosted high-profile film productions recently, such as the Pekin Express by Eccholine International Line Production from Belgium and “Islands-Earth’s Paradise Isles” by BBC Natural History Unit from UK, as well as an episode of Asia’s Next Top Model, River Monsters, Surviving Borneo with Henry Golding, and Anthony Bourdain’s – Parts Unknown, to name a few.
