Explore The Tip of Borneo (PVT)(ESG)
- Full Day
Resume the drive up the coast, entering the Kudat region. This area is home to the Rungus people,
one of the many ethnic groups in Borneo. Despite having modernised in many ways, the Rungus still maintain their ancestral practices of basket weaving, growing rice and wearing elaborate costumes during festivals.

Get an introduction to Rungus culture at Bavanggazo Longhouse, one of the few remaining traditional dwellings of the Rungus people. Step inside this remarkable structure and sit down for a lunch of Rungus dishes.

Continue to explore neighbouring Rungus villages to gain a better understanding of their customs and ways of life. Witness craftsmen making gongs, one of the prized musical instruments of the Rungus people. Also, stroll through a ‘bee smokers’ village to see how the locals produce and collect honey to be consumed and to be used in traditional medicines.
 

Following this insightful exploration of Rungus culture, return to Kota Kinabalu early this evening. (L)
