Mari Mari Cultural Village
Get a taste of tribal life
What we say:
A fact-filled guide will lead you through longhouses where Sabah tribespeople will share their fire-starting, blow-dart shooting and tattooing techniques and even let you jump on the traditional wooden trampoline.
Visits are at set times of 10:00, 14:00 and 18:00 daily and take about three hours, wrapping up with a dance performance in full tribal costume and a meal. We were skeptical that Mari Mari would be childish, but our minds were quickly changed when the tour started with a shot of rice whiskey and later a herbal cigarette.
Your hotel will be happy to book a visit for you for around 160 ringgit for adults and 140 ringgit for children including round-trip minivan transportation, but it's 10 ringgit cheaper if booked at the Sabah State Tourism Office. Expensive, but enjoyable.
