    Tour Description:

    The journey to your first destination will take approximately three hours. Watch out for fascinating sights as you leave the city and enter the tranquillity of the picturesque countryside. You will pass plenty of paddy fields, villages and oil palm plantations. The local stalls and their colourful displays of handicrafts and popular foods make a very fetching picture, too. You might also catch glimpses of the Bajau horsemen, who still practice their unique tradition of sword-making. If you take the tour on the right day, you will be able to stop by the Taman Kota Belud Sunday market, where the region’s vendors, farmers, fishermen and cattle breeders gather. You will also visit the Sumangkap Village, which has established bee farming and gong making productions.
     
    Kudat is located in Sabah’s northernmost areas, home to the Rungus tribe, a sub-group of the Kadazan-Dusun community. Here, you will learn all about the everyday lives of the local people, who specialise in rice planting and handcrafting. They also grow their own cotton which is used by the Rungus women to weave their traditional costumes. At the Bavanggazo village, you will have the chance to step foot into a traditional longhouse.
     
    After lunch, the tour group will proceed to Tanjung Simpang Mengayau. You might know it better as the spectacular ‘Tip of Borneo’. The drive will take about an hour. What makes the tip so special is that it is the meeting point for the South China and Sulu seas. Prepare to be amazed by the deep blue waters that stretch on and on like a great carpet that has been unfurled at your very feet. The site also features an enormous bronze globe that marks the tip’s latitude as 7 degrees north and longitude as 116 degrees east.
