Monsopiad Cultural Village
Cheesy but fun
What we say:
Cheesy but fun, this living museum gives visitors a chance to try their hand at the Borneo blow pipe, play tribal games and see how rice wine is made.
Unlike the Mari Mari Cultural Village, guests are free to wander at their own pace around the replica longhouses, though a guided tour and dance show are included in the price. Don't miss the â€˜House of Skulls' where the heads of legendary Kadazan warrior Monsopiad's enemies are still on display â€“ the village is named in his honour.
The village is open from 09:00 to 17:00 daily with dance performances roughly at 9:00, 11:00, 14:00 and 16:00. Admission is 75 ringgit for non-Malaysians with a discount to 50 ringgit with a valid student card. The village is about 25 minutes from Kota Kinabalu and a roundtrip taxi costs 100 ringgit including waiting time.
