Connect with nature

A trip to Kudat is well worth the flight for city slickers who wish to get away from it all. Seek a connection with nature and the earth by staying with a Rungus family in their longhouse. Get intimate with your creative self by learning new skills in beading and weaving. Visit the gong-making village at Kampung Sumangkap, and the Bead Centre at Kampung Tinangol to learn more about these crafts.

For a spectacular evening, take a trip up to the Tip of Borneo, also known as Tanjung Simpang Mengayau, the world’s third largest island mass. Here, witness the South China and Sulu seas meet in a great clash of waves backdropped against a stunning sunset. Also, don’t forget to dig in to some of the freshest seafood around.
