About this activity
After hotel pickup in Kota Kinabalu, travel for about 30 minutes to the Inanam countryside for a visit to the Mari Mari Cultural Village. Built to showcase the rich diversity of the people of Borneo, the village is set in a secondary jungle, providing an ideal setting to learn how each tribe has used materials for everyday living commonly found in their natural surroundings.

To enter the village, you will cross a 65-foot (20-meter) hanging bridge spanning 13 feet (4 meters) above a flowing river. Take a 90-minute leisurely walk while you visit the houses of the major tribal groups of Borneo, namely: the Dusun, Rungus, Lundayeh, Bajau, and Murut Longhouse. At each house, you will be shown different cultural activities unique to that particular tribe, such as cooking using bamboo, starting fire without matches, making traditional snacks and drinks, and blowpipe target shooting. Please note that there are up to 12 steps to enter the various houses; the flooring is uneven and you are advised to watch your step.

Complete your cultural village experience with a live presentation of dance before savoring traditional cuisine unique to Sabah — either a simple lunch, afternoon tea, or dinner, depending on which departure time you have selected. Afterward, you're returned to your hotel.
