  • Because dance is featured in the sense that you can see valuable cultural assets, is listed on the site and shows a number of hands-on activities was very nice. Guide me the scale House ☠ eager to tell you about ️ the other's touch. Read reviews and usually different explanation seems to be so, didn't so much motivation on Oh holiday wanted!. Lol

  • 这个小村里面最著名的就是头骨屋,这里面都是当地的战士砍下敌人的头骨,还有其他各种的土著遗物,建起来的一个房子,在这里可以和当地的土著人一起跳舞 
  • Super adventure, learning about the history, culture of the indigenous people of this part of Borneo. We were visiting in the evening a little poorly in terms of photography but it is climate an evening doing a lot of work-I recommend this attraction

  • My kids enjoyed the place. They learnt something about Monsopiad, used a blow pipe and saw real life human skulls. Eye openers to them. The place is less than 1/2 hour from Kota Kinabalu so an easy drive for a few hours of educational activity especially for the kids.
  • Very nice little village where you can learn about the earlier live on the island. We had a fantastic tour guide and a lot of fun making fire, tasting risewine and eating instects.
  • This place allows you to understand the way of the native people of Borneo. The rice wine is a must try. Do wear long sleeve or get your mosquito repellent before visiting.
  • Nice place to visit and see the Kadazandusun culture
  • Historical place and you will be able to see a real skull!!!
