Daily Excursion: Mari Mari Cultural Village
On your visit to Sabah, be sure to visit the Mari-Mari Cultural Village in Kionsom, Inanam. A half hour drive out of Kota Kinabalu city, the journey will take you deep into the jungles of Kionsom. You will see Sabah as it was when it was called Borneo. It is hard not to be taken back in time, in the midst of traditional native Borneo houses and natives in their traditional regalia.
In the village, you will be introduced to various traditional homes of Sabahan ethnic communities — the Bajau, Lundayeh, Murut, Rungus and Dusun. Traditional Borneo houses are built from wood or bamboo, the materials being readily available in the jungle. It is easy to imagine what it must have been like in the old days
