Planning Sabah vacation for family: It’s a challenge
Going on a vacation with the whole family can be a challenge. You have to think of activities that will appeal to children and adults alike. It should not be too tiring; nor should it be boring that the kids would not appreciate the entire Sabah vacation.
Sabah offers different activities
This is why the Sabah attractions will just be perfect. Sabah island hopping and visiting a Sabah cultural village are two things everyone can enjoy. The Sabah basin is another one-of-a-kind experience wherein vast species of plants and animals can be seen. It is only in Sabah that such contradicting destinations are found.
First hand experience with local culture
To be more specific, Monsopiad cultural village is a place where Monsopiad, a famous warrior is revered by his descendants. You can take a tour and see what the traditional houses looked like, taste the food they ate, and enjoy a cultural dance and show. Mari-Mari cultural village is a little similar, although there are more ethnic groups here like the Bajau and Dusun. A guided tour is a must though, for this latter village.
Fancy beach and sun?
The family will take pleasure in a Sabah diving or snorkelling experience. The most famous beach for diving is Sipadan Island, but you can opt to island hop and see several islands in one day with the same activities. Ask the people around or research it yourself, so that you’ll know which islands appeals to you the most. You can sleep in Manukan Island Resort, Sabah’s best resort in that area to rest. Once you feel refreshed, continue on your journey and maximize your vacation.
