The Mari Mari Cultural Village is located in Kionsom, Inanam, in a remote woodland setting, away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Mari Mari Cultural Village reflects the lifestyles of five important Sabah ethnic groups: farmers and traders Dusun and Rungus, hunters and fisherman Lundayeh, cowboys and sea gipsies Bajau, and the famously feared warrior tribe Murut — all of which are built by descendants of the tribes they represent.

Additionally, visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy traditional Sabahan delicacies from each ethnic group.
