Get a closer look at the natural beauty and culture of Borneo on a half day trip to Borneo Cultural Village. Borneo Cultural Village is the largest of its kind in Sabah, boasting 7 ethnic traditional houses: Chinese House, Brunei House, Murut House, Kadazan Penampang House, Bajau House, Tidung House, and Dusun Papar House. In this tour, you'll get an insight into the cultural diversity of the ethnic groups. Watch a live traditional dance performance, and learn how to cook Curry Chicken and Indian style pan cake using bamboo. Depending on your package, you'll proceed to Klias River Mangrove, where you'll enjoy a scenic cruise through spectacular vistas. You'll watch the beautiful sunset on boat, and then marvel at the natural light show as hundreds of fireflies put on a glowing performance. This tour is perfect for first time visitors in Borneo and those who want to know more about the island's fascinating ethnic culture.
Veer off the beaten track, beat tourist crowds and explore the hidden Malaysian oasis of Mantanani Island, a great location for diving, snorkeling, bird watching and more. Located off the north-west coast of the state of Sabah, Malaysia, the island is home to many marine animals. You will have two fun options to choose from, depending on your preferences: a Mantanani snorkeling only package or Mantanani snorkeling plus a Kawa Kawa River cruise. The first one takes you to the best locations for exploring the underwater world with an abundance of coral reefs. Whilst the river cruise option also lets you relax over a buffet dinner while observing fireflies. You choose!
Klias Wetland is a mangrove forest reserve and a destination quickly gaining popularity with tourists. Catch it before it becomes a tourist hotspot and experience the best of Kilas while it's still quiet and pristine. One of the major attractions is, of course, the chance to spot the rare Proboscis Monkeys. The tree-dwelling celebrities typically show up after sunset, so make sure you keep your eyes out for them as you sail along the river. You'll also enjoy a delicious dinner onboard and watch fireflies dance in the night sky.
Mari-mari Cultural Village is a must-visit! It features houses of five indigenous peoples of Sabah and a lot of wine/food samples on every stop. Kiulu river rafting is grade 1-2, not really difficult for an adventurous soul. This package comes with convenient roundtrip transfer, buffet lunch (after rafting), and another heavy meal / high tea (after tour on the village).
The Borneo Cultural Village Tour was a wonderful experience. Our guide Ven, as well as the other staff, were very nice and entertaining. The tour was informative as well as interesting. You will learn a lot about the culture of tribes, and you will get to try out traditional snacks and drinks that are all very good. The activities were enjoyable as well. The lunch buffet was delicious. This tour is definitely a must-do especially for first timers in Sabah. 👍🏻
Very fun experience. You'll learn a lot about the tribe's culture. Everyone of the staff are very friendly and they always smile and laugh. There were only 11 tourists because of COVID-19 but they all gave us a wonderful time and the performers were all out on their performance. Thanks to Viktor, our driver, he's friendly, knowledgeable, and an excellent driver. 10/10 would recommend.
Amazing experience for group or whole family! From KK, we had comfy two hour ride to Kiulu river. Rafting is enjoyable, though quite tiring to complete more than 5 km. There was no departure fr itinerary and we proceeded to Mari-mari cultural village in the afternoon. Our guide, Kuya Ben, and the entire villagers were fascinating. Lots of food and wine samplers along the tour.
Really enjoyed our tour in Borneo Cultural Village. We were really able to experience their culture. Got to try their dance, their native hunting instrument, cooking curry and roti, and various food samples from the different tribes. The buffet lunch was also good. They also offered free henna tattoo.
Very Educational and Unique Experience. It hppened that we were the only visitors when we got there. We were like VIP. We were able to focus and enjoy on all the activities since our guide Victor took care of the photographs and videos.
The site guide Corina and all the other staff at the Village are accomodating and friendly. Very Good Experience. :)
