Full description
A visit to the Mari Mari Cultural Village will be the cultural excursion of a lifetime! It is located approximately 25 minutes away from the city and situated amidst a remote forest setting in Kionsom, Inanam; away from the hustling and bustling city. 

Your friendly in-house guides are descendants of the 5 tribes in the village and will be more than happy to share stories with you of how their great ancestors used to live, and what their spiritual beliefs living in the jungle were. You’ll also get the opportunity to participate and experience in a few of the demonstrations, such as blowing the Murut blowpipe weapon and many more light and simple activities.

Along with storytelling from your in-house guide, each tribe will also be showcasing and giving demonstrations of how they hunted, made fire and cooked in times gone by. These performers are natives that live nearby, and this tour offers not only the opportunity for them to preserve and showcase their ancestors’ tradition, culture, and history but also provide employment for them. Every dollar you spend goes back towards helping the local native people preserve their ancestors' culture and tradition.
