  • The experience was good. The Staff are friendly. But they need to maintain the place.
  • A must visit place to understand more about Kadazan people.
  • I went there for TN50.. Didnt have alook ard so not much comment
  • Lisa is our guide. She's very informative and we've a lot of fun trying the games.
  • Passion driven heritage village. This is where real Kadazans show off their culture and traditions. This place may have skulls on the house ceiling, but it's so much more than that.
