The Borneo episode of Anthony Bourdain’s ‘Parts Unknown’ aired in the US. Borneo Adventure were the location fixers for ZPZ Production. The episode was filmed in Sarawak, mostly in Kuching and at Entalau Longhouse on the Skrang River.
In Kuching location filming took place at:
- Choon Hui Café for the Sarawak Laksa segment of the film.
- The Kuching Waterfront for those gorgeous sunsets that appear in the episode.
- A Malay café-cum-karaoke joint on the banks of the Sarawak River for the sit down interview with Alex Wong, singer-songwriter and jet ski racer.
- The Malay food stalls opposite the Kuching Mosque. A whole dinner scene was shot here with Sarawakian chef Dino Bidari. However, this did not appear in the episode.
There are some great quotes from the Borneo episode on the Explore Parts Unknown website.
