Mari Mari Cultural Village Tours

Travelers in search of a true cultural exchange need look no further than Mari Mari, a cultural village situation in a remote forest on the island of Borneo. Here, visitors can learn about the indigenous Sabahan people, explore their traditional homes and witness fire-starting, blowpipe-making and tattoo-making demonstrations. 

In addition to sharing their cultures and traditions, representatives from the Bajau, Lundayeh, Murut, Rungus and Dusun people also cook ethnic delicacies for travelers with an adventurous palate to sample. While some visitors say the village can feel a bit too touristy, others argue it’s the perfect way to experience the vibrant cultures and traditions of Borneo in a single stop. 

Practical Info

The cultural village is located on the island of Borneo and open daily from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. Tours are available for groups and arrangements ahead of time are recommended.  Admission for non-Malaysians—including transportation—is RM 160.
