  • Really enjoyed this. It's not one of those awkward 'cultural' villages. It's a purpose built village with example houses from different tribes. The staff were young and rightly proud of their heritage and enthusiastically show how things used to be done. We were given lots of samples of traditional food and drink. Use a blow dart and get a henna tattoo. The bamboo dancing was amazing. Well worth a visit.
  • Go here and learn how the people of Borneo lived in the past. You are treated to a fine welcome then a guided tour if their traditional way of living. You try samples of their food cooked in front of you. Their way of life is explained to you as you go into each house in the small village. Also the chief head hunters house and why they took heads in the first place. Then you are treated to their traditional dance and entertainment followed by lunch witch is to die for. Not expensive to do thi tour
  • A very nice experience. Able to get to know the tribes more and even sample some of their local delicacies which uses very simple ingredient but taste good. Enjoyed my trip there
  • Reserve one day in advance. RM95 per person. 10am tour. Very informative and interactive. Baxter our tour guide is fun and helpful. The tour ended with the show and very delicious lunch buffet. Definitely recommended. 10/10
  • Great place, a must visit. Having a walk and learn about the 5 five biggest tribes in Sabah. The guides are great. The young people that represents the local culture are lovely and very positive. You can try various tasty made on the spot snaks and drinks trough the tour. They have a great dance and tasty lunch at the end.
