Time travel to Mari Mari Village

While all of Malaysia is a melting pot of unique cultures, Mari Mari cultural village is an offbeat experience unlike any other. On your way, you will be treated to lush greenery all around you. Once you arrive, your first stop will be at the local houses of each tribe that were painstakingly built by hand using traditional architectural methods. The intricate architecture of each of the five houses symbolizes the unique motifs of each tribe while retaining common elements with Borneo. As you enter each house, learn more about each tribe and how their modern lives beautifully sync with their old ways.

Enjoy a cultural performance and a massive buffet of local dishes

As you approach the final house, an immersive cultural performance will kick off. The blowpipe-making performance is guaranteed to mesmerize you. With that being said, there will be tons of other cultural performances including fire-starting, tattoo-making, and how to make a local cigarette. Just when you thought that it couldn’t get any better, you will be taken to the dining hall where you can feast on a delicious buffet for lunch or dinner (depending on the timings you opt for). Enjoy the feast and wrap up your immersive tour with a happy heart and stomach. Upgrade your ticket to include round-trip transfers from your hotel, making your experience more convenient than ever.
