‘Culture vultures’ will adore our paradise in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, for the incredibly rich traditions of the ethnic communities!

Several participants of our Expedition Borneo groups’ this year, still craving for more fun, decide to visit an exciting attraction nearby Kota Kinabalu, which caters to guests with the multi-activity fun that can be found.

To discover the exciting attraction, the group need to be transferred via a maskeshift raft/boat, and once arriving at their destination, there is a long list of activities available for our adventurers’ to try out (and which they did). Some are as follows: blowpipe practise (after a skilled demonstration, of course) with supervision for health and safety, traditional batik painting, body boarding the South China Sea surf along the white sandy beaches of the pristine 8km beach, and lots more! The group of 10 also made some time for relaxing in hammocks that are already set up for use at the beach too!

The activities offer them a glimpse of the rich history of Borneo, and there are other land day trips in and around Kota Kinabalu to experience; for example, the Monsopiad Cultural Village. Even Mount Kinabalu is only a 2-hour drive from the city centre. Not many travel destinations can boast a World Heritage UNESCO designated site so close to their capital state!

For more information on the various programs our Sabah Travel Centre can create, contact our HQ, and discuss a suitable itinerary for a 1-day trip or 1-month for groups of any size!
