Sabah Trip - Mari-Mari Cultural Village

If you have read my recent post, I headed over to Sabah for a holiday! Do check it out here if you haven't: http://www.seraphsam.com/2012/10/sabah-trip-of-islands-food.html

So as for the 2nd part of my trip, I was able to visit the Mari-mari cultural village. Mari-mari in direct translation is "come come" We paid RM150 per person to go in, and we were able to visit 4 of the native Sabah tribes houses. 

In the cultural village, we were able to see how the natives lived among each other and of course, able to drink some of the Tuak (rice wine) that they have made. omg i'm such an alcoholic

Lets just head to some of the pictures over there:
