Reviews about Mari Mari Cultural Village

Reviewed on 9 Aug 2015

Located in the thick of the forest in Kionsom, Mari Mari Cultural Village is perhaps one of the best places to learn about some of the main ethnic groups in Sabah namely Dusun, Rungus, Bajau, Lundayeh and Murut. Visitors can explore the different types of houses they live in and discover their unique way of life. Various demonstrations are held such as blowpipe making, fire starting using bamboo and traditional tattoo making. You can also learn how to do a traditional dance and sample delicious local food.

I think it's the most worthwhile place to go to. To really experience the local customs and understand the history and culture of the indigenous people is the biggest gain that I was very surprised by. On the contrary, I feel that the mangrove trip is totally inferior to this cultural village. You can see the local residents'boys and girls are very beautiful, with natural simplicity on their faces, very warm and lovely. Even the final performance is full of devotion. Tour guides themselves married to the local ethnic group and also talked about the traditions of that ethnic group. They introduced the traditions of killing heads, such as killing a lot of people before marriage to prove their strength; for example, thieves would be killed, and people would hang their heads on the roof, because they thought that people's minds came from the brain to deter intruders; for example, children born two months would be thrown into the child test. Try, those who can swim are considered to be descendants of their own race, and those who can not swim give up. Their husbands belong to this race. Now there is still this tradition, but they will not abandon their children, and so on. Many, many cultures we don't know and know. I strongly recommend going to this cultural village. Compared with the National Park, the mangrove is a bumpy two-hour drive, which is half an hour away. And the mountains are similar to the national parks. Suggestions are preferred. After the end of the coffee and tea and all kinds of fruit snacks enthusiastically entertained, the whole process without any consumption, is not the comment at all. In addition, after the performance, it is suggested to go up and take a bamboo pole dance with the young people. A very, very interesting three-hour cultural tour.
