  • A must to visit especially for tourists that keen to know more about the local culture from different beliefs.
  • Worth visiting! Really interesting houses and friendly staff. Note that the village cannot be accessed without guide and the tours go at specific time.
  • Fun introduction to Sabahs cultural heritage. 3 hour guided tour including food, local alcohol and a dance performance.
  • Mari Mari Culture Village offers glimpses into the lives of Sabah's rich culture with its distinctive houses, costumes and traditional skills of five major Sabah's ethnic groups; the farmers and traders Dusun and Rungus, the hunters and fishermen Lundayeh, the cowboys and sea gypsies Bajau, and the famously feared warrior tribe Murut. Experience, see, hear, taste and feel the uniqueness of what Sabah truly is. An unforgetable encounter of our Sabahan homeland ...

Where to stay in Kota Kinabalu

In the area of Sepanggar you'll find the main set of hotels, ranging from simple and mid-priced, to the more luxurious with good sea views. Move away from the coast for more space and privacy in resort-style hotels, which offer a range of facilities and comfortable, sometimes quirky rooms and apartments. Farther out still, you'll find backpacker motels, giving easy access to the surrounding natural attractions that, after all, are the primary reason for being here.
